Welcome to Hanover College Homecoming – a weekend of nostalgia, excitement, and reconnection! Get ready to reunite with old friends, cheer on the Panthers, and indulge in a feast of fun!

Reunions Galore

This year, we’re celebrating three fantastic milestone class reunions! Join your classmates to reminisce about the good ol' days, share stories, and make new memories. Whether you graduated last year or decades ago, the laughter and camaraderie will make you feel like you never left.

Football Frenzy

Get your spirit gear on and head to the stands for the big game! Feel the adrenaline rush as our Panthers take the field. With every touchdown and tackle, the excitement is palpable. 


Hungry? We've got you covered! Head to the concessions in the BIG TENT for classic game-day treats – hot dogs, hamburgers, pulled pork sandwiches, and ice cream novelties. Or, if you’re in the mood for something else, head to the Shoebox and check out their beer menu. 

And So Much More

The fun doesn’t stop there! Explore the campus for music, photo booths, and activities for all ages. Take a self-guided campus tour, visit the Point, or visit the Duggan Library for another great presentation. Plus, there is plenty of Hanover swag under the red Alumni Tent.

Hanover College Homecoming is more than just an event – it's a celebration of our vibrant community. Come home, reconnect, and create new memories that will last a lifetime. We can’t wait to see you there!
