Hanover College History Department

Welcome to the Hanover College History Department!

This winter is the 40th anniversary of the landmark television miniseries Roots, and some of our students are recreating the experience of watching the original broadcast.  If you’d like a window into the Hanover College campus in January 1977, we have newspaper clippings, ads, and tv listings to share

The history department takes pride in our students' success. We're always glad for you to stop by our offices or email us.

We are delighted that thousands of people continue to use it every day.
