Charlotte Verbanic ’21 defines what it means to be an active and engaged student.

An HCAC All-Conference athlete on the women’s lacrosse team and sister in Kappa Alpha Theta, Verbanic is also a mathematics major, minoring in business, computer science, and theology, active in the Business Scholars Program and Alpha Lambda Delta, and is a Benjamin Templeton Scholar.

From Columbus, Ind., Verbanic knew Hanover was the place for her because “it was a smaller school, which I was looking for because I knew majoring in Mathematics would be challenging. It also seemed that I could get a good balance between academics and athletics while also being involved in many other things.”

When she’s not in class or on the lacrosse pitch, she can be found working as a barista at Café 1827 or as a tutor in the Gladish Learning Center. But, when all of her big assignments or papers are done, you can find her happily spending time with her friends outside in the sun.

Verbanic has found great support from her professors and lacrosse coach, Brandon Allwood. She states, “Lately, I have been really supported by Rachel Sharpe (Head Track Coach and Theta Advisor). She is a great sounding board and really understands modern women!”

After graduation, Verbanic will be working as an EBU Electronic Systems Engineer at Cummins Inc. “I am excited to know that all my hard work in college paid off, and I will be starting my career prepared and confident.”
