Hanover College is a private, 4-year school located in Hanover, IN, between Louisville and Cincinnati. The school was founded in 1827 by Presbyterian Reverend John Finley Crowe and is the oldest private college in Indiana. In 1843, the school’s charter was dissolved as the college was to move and reopen as Madison University in Madison, IN. Crowe, however, purchased the original campus and launched the Hanover Classical and Mathematical School later that year. By the mid-1844, Madison’s faculty and student body returned to Crowe’s school and the name was restored via renewed charter that December – meaning that John Finley Crowe founded Hanover College twice! The 650 acre campus overlooks the Ohio River and features traditional red brick collegiate Gothic with a stunning overlook of the River. Many open spaces and tree-lined pathways provide a pleasant environment on campus. Notable alumni include actor Woody Harrelson and Indiana Governor Mike Pence.
