Hanover observes Eastern Daylight Time (that is, we are on the same time as Cincinnati and Louisville).
The 2014 event is full. Please note that we also offer individual recruitment visits to campus, free of charge, throughout the academic year. To arrange a schedule, please contact the Career Center.
Parking: Parking will be farther away this year due to construction on Lynn Hall (31). Please review the online campus map to locate parking spaces. The lots behind the Faculty Office Building (30), Science Center (13), Library (32), and Center for Fine Arts (34) buildings are convenient to the Campus Center (15). We will have staff to assist you with unloading and directing you to the nearest parking. Please let us know if you need further assistance.
Recruiting for Future Graduate Students at Hanover
Over the past 5 years, nearly 30% of our new graduates have opted to continue their educations in the fall following graduation. These numbers are even higher for our science majors, where 10 year averages for new grads entering advanced degree programs are: for Biology, 48%; Chemistry, 53%; Geology, 33%; and Physics, 50%. We estimate that the number will increase to sixty percent within five years of their graduation.
Our students are well-prepared for the rigors of graduate school: by graduation, a typical student will have written over fifty papers, presented research findings in class every term, and become facile in critical analysis and research. The faculty has designed our curriculum to ensure depth of training as well as breadth, and our students are required to demonstrate competency in quantitative reasoning, composition, and public speaking. All graduates will have undertaken a culminating experience such as a comprehensive examination in their majors or a senior thesis, and many will have done both.
