Homecoming

HOMECOMING IS OCTOBER 2 - 3, 2015!
Hanover College vs. Bluffton University 1:30 p.m.

A weekend of festivities is planned each year 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 Alumni & Faculty Reception on Friday evening at the President's House, the 7th Annual 5K with a View on Saturday morning, Hanoverfest in the Tailgate Lot, thirteen reunion celebrations and of course, the football game.

New this year is the installment of our sixteenth president, Dr. Lake Lambert III. Be sure to see this historic ceremony on Saturday, October 3 at 11:00 a.m. on The Point. Then join us for the Inaugural Gala that evening at 8:00 p.m. in the Science Center.

SPECIAL REUNION CELEBRATIONS
All alumni are special and are invited back to campus for Hanoverfest in the Tailgate Lot. However, each year during Homecoming, The Alumni Engagement Office recognizes 13 classes and provides a special gathering place for them to reminisce. This year, starting with the Class of 1950, we will hold special reunion gatherings for all class years ending in '0' and '5'.
