Visiting campus will be one of the most important and informative steps in your college search.

A typical visit includes a walking tour and an interview, but there are plenty of additional ways for you to customize your experience. Arrange to observe a class, speak with a certain professor or talk with one of our social club chairs. You can even spend the night.

Individual Visits


Hanover's Office of Admission and Financial Aid is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. during the academic year and 7:30 a.m. - 4 p.m. during the summer (June - August). All visits include a walking tour of campus and a meeting with an admission counselor. You may request to visit a class, meet with a professor in your area of academic interest, meet with a coach or talk to someone in our financial aid office. To ensure that your visit meets all of your expectations, we ask that you schedule it at least one week ahead of time.

Overnight Visits

An overnight visit is a great way to see both the academic and social sides of campus. Our student ambassadors host overnight guests Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday. Typical overnight visits start at 5 p.m. when you meet your host. You'll spend the night in the host's residence hall and attend classes the following morning. You can include a walking tour of campus and a meeting with an admission counselor either before or after the classes.

We recommend that you plan your overnight visit approximately two weeks prior to your arrival. This allows us to match you with a host who has interests similar to yours. Overnight visits are intended for high school students in the second semester of their junior year or high school seniors.

School / Community Group Visits
