Two of the top college-oriented publications in the U.S. continue to include Hanover College among the nation’s best. Survey-based rankings in publications from The Princeton Review and Forbes magazine have each lauded Hanover in such categories as most beautiful campus, quality of education and student experience. For the 11th consecutive year, The Princeton Review has named Hanover one of the nation’s best institutions for undergraduate education.

The New York-based education services company features Hanover in its guide, “The Best 380 Colleges – 2016 Edition.” Hanover ranked 19th for “most beautiful campus” along with citing its academics, admission selectivity and financial aid packages. The college totaled 89 of a possible 99 points in its academic rating, 87 points for admission selectivity and 80 points in financial aid. Students in the survey hailed Hanover’s campus life, calling their classmates, “well-rounded, smart and very friendly” students who know how to deftly “balance a healthy social life with a strong academic focus.”

Additionally, students ranked Hanover’s professors high, giving them a total of 93 points, with one student calling them “amazing.” They also noted the college’s small class size and lack of teaching assistants. Hanover is located on 650 acres overlooking the Ohio River in southeastern Indiana. The liberal arts institution’s core strengths are in the sciences, education and business.
