Indiana's First Private College

That's the beauty of Hanover

If you’re looking for ordinary, Hanover College is delighted to disappoint. Our students start companies, create social movements, and examine wildlife in the wild – and that is just while they’re here. After they leave, they join a powerful alumni network of high achievers, with connections to jobs and educational opportunities in every field.

All are welcome on Saturday afternoon (1:30pm) to a ceremony where Hanover College will officially dedicate Enigma, a statue commissioned and donated by the Plattner family, in memory of Denny Plattner ’84. Join us for a dessert reception after the program to meet and thank the Plattners, who have given generously over the past several years to support students’ international travel.Enigma is sculpted in cast iron by the Icelandic artist Steinunn Thorarinsdottir. It resides in the Zirkle Garden, in between the Center for Fine Arts and the Duggan Library.
