September 30 through OCTOBER 2

Homecoming is a festive time for the College to welcome back its alumni – young and old, near and far – and to celebrate its current student body. During this celebratory time, we invite alumni, students and the entire community to join us in a host of fun activities, including the 5K at The Point, a complimentary breakfast in the Withrow Activities Center, Hanoverfest and the football game. There’s something for everyone! We hope you enjoy! Check back often for updates.

SCHEDULE OF EVENTS see a full list of what's been planned


  • 11:00 a.m. until 1:30 p.m.
    Walk up food purchases (cash only) such as walking tacos, nachos, cotton candy, bags of chips, hot dogs and hamburgers will be available to purchase. The Kona Ice Truck of Madison will be here to provide shaved ice to alumni and guests. Feel like having a little more fun? Jump around on one of four Inflatables and visit the photo booth to capture the memories.
  • 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.
    Don't forget to visit the Alumni Brewery Tent that will feature samples from breweries who have a Hanover alumni connection: Sun King, Resignation (KCCO) and Upland. Alumni and friends will have an opportunity to visit each brewery’s table at their own pace during the biergarten’s operating hours. Proper ID will be required to enter and each participant will receive one punch card in order to sample the beer from each brewery.


We are recognizing all class years that end in 1's and 6's. However, the College will be holding milestone reunions for the 25 year, 40 year and 50 year classes. A few non-milestone reunions (their hosts) have made arrangements to gather and worked directly with the catering department for their needs. Make sure to check your reunion page to see what's been planned for your class.

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. This gives you the opportunity to come back and enjoy your time on campus in the way you want.


Registration has now closed so that we can finalize the set up for all of our Homecoming and Reunion activities. If you would still like to attend Homecoming or your Reunion, you may check-in and register on campus at one of the many locations on Saturday, October 1.

Check-In and Registrations Locations:
1. 8:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. Campus Center
2. 11:00 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. Tailgate Lot in red tent
