Hanover to be featured in Amazon Prime Video’s “The College Tour”
Life on Indiana’s oldest private college campus will be told through the stories and experiences of Hanover College’s current students during an upcoming episode of “The College Tour,” an acclaimed streaming series available on Amazon Prime Video.
Launched in 2020, each episode of “The College Tour” explores life on college and university campuses across the country and around the world. Hanover’s 30-minute episode will feature the personal journeys of 10 current students. Each segment will provide unique perspectives on the lives of the College’s students both inside and outside the classroom, exploring such topics as academics, housing, Greek life, athletics, performing and visual arts, clubs and organizations, campus beauty and more.
“Hanover College is thrilled to be partnering with ‘The College Tour’ to tell our unique story through the eyes of our students,” said Peter Ashley, vice president for enrollment and marketing. “Hanover is indeed a special place and we can’t wait for our episode to air this fall so many more people around the world can learn what we already know.”
Casting is now underway. Filming is scheduled to begin on campus in early May. The episode will air during the sixth season of “The College Tour,” which begins in November.
“The College Tour” is hosted by Alex Boylan, who won CBS television’s “The Amazing Race” in 2002 and has since hosted and produced programs on CBS, Travel Channel, Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) and more. He created the series with Emmy-nominated producer Lisa Hennessy and former “Survivor” contestant and producer Burton Roberts.
“The idea for ‘The College Tour’ series came to me from my 16-year-old niece. Because of the pandemic and finances, she was not able to travel to tour colleges,” said Boylan. “So, using our skills as executive producers, we created a series inspired by her and millions of other young people who are interested in attending college.”
