Just a ten minute drive away from our Historic Downtown District, Hanover College sets atop the Ohio River Valley boasting the only location where you can view the river bend three times. After you make your way down Hanover Hill, explore our locally-owned shops and eateries, historic architecture, and maybe even take a self-guided walking or driving tour! Many of our local businesses and world-wide industries have connections to Hanover College and employ Panthers with pride! After you’ve explored Main Street, take a stroll along our riverfront and stop at one of the many benches lining the way to enjoy the views. There is so much to experience here!
Coming in from out of town? Whether you’re here for an admissions visit, sporting event, musical performance, or Homecoming Weekend, make the most of your trip!
