April (Snow) Showers Bring Forth Flowers

It seems that every spring, April throws Hanover a final winter’s farewell with a few late-season snowfalls. Don’t be surprised if your lacrosse practice is canceled due to snowstorms, complete with thunder! Yet with blooming flowers and budding trees, spring planting at the Organic Farm, the return of sports, outdoor socializing, a Pride celebration with cupcakes, and the nearing completion of their undergraduate years for many ’21s, the new season is an exciting time on campus.
