September 30 through OCTOBER 2

A weekend of festivities is being planned for Homecoming weekend. Alumni, parents, current and prospective students are all encouraged to enjoy a fall day on Hanover's beautiful campus. Traditional Homecoming activities include the 7th Annual 5K with a View on Saturday morning, Hanoverfest in the Tailgate Lot and of course, the football game. Check back often for updates.

Have reunions changed?
We are still recognizing all class years that end in 1's and 6's. However, the College will only be holding milestone reunions for the 25 year, 40 year and 50 year classes.

Although it may not be a milestone reunion year for some of you, we are still uniting to celebrate Hanover, our fond memories and the connections we've made. Each class is special and we will have all 13 reunion banners hanging in the Hanoverfest tent so that all the classes will be recognized. There will also be reserved seating so that those classes will have a place to gather. A few non-milestone reunions (their hosts) are currently planning to gather and are able to work directly with the catering department for their needs. This gives everyone the opportunity to come back and enjoy their time on campus in the way they want.

If you have any questions, please contact the Alumni Office.
