At Hanover, learning is not a solitary activity – it is a cooperative venture. We have many people and resources available to help you through your educational journey. For research and study assistance, we offer our Duggan Library as well as two student computing centers. For academic counseling, your faculty advisor will help you plan your schedule and pick your classes. For career and graduate school counseling, the Career Center has a myriad of resources at your disposal, even after you graduate.
