homecoming and reunion weekend 2020
Hanover College's 93rd Homecoming and Reunion Weekend Celebration will be held from Friday, October 9 to Sunday, October 11, 2020, and will be open to all alumni, families, friends, and trustees for a wide range of events.
This year, we will celebrate all classes that end in 5s and 0s beginning with 1955 and ending with 2015. The Office of Alumni Relations is currently looking for reunion hosts and need to secure them by March 1 in order to properly prepare. What is a reunion host? See the link Reunion Host Information.
*Important Note: If Homecoming 2020 is an in-person event, please know that our events also falls on the same weekend as Madison's Soup, Stew, and Chili Brew. Hanover College will not be able to secure many if any, rooms for our event or at a discounted price. Please secure your hotel arrangements as soon as possible.

All reunions will be held in the tailgate lot during Hanoverfest at no cost. Decade tents will be provided along with table, chairs, and a food tent for individual purchase. In the past, we have offered free entertainment that included inflatables, a photo booth, face painting, a live band, and face painting. There are two exceptions and that is for the Golden Panther Reunions (Classes of 1955, 1960, and 1965) as they will enjoy their reunion in the Alumni Lounge/Employee Dining Room inside the Campus Center. The other exception are the classes of 1970 (50 year reunion) and 1980 (40 year reunion). These reunions will also have a dinner reunion at a location on campus. As plans are finalized for the 2020 event, information will be posted.
