I really enjoyed visiting Hiram College. It is the top school I want to go to. They have a really interesting program dedicated to studying animals and biology. When I urged my friends to apply, they got accepted right away. Hiram has a small campus that just feels like home.
I loved my experience at Hiram College. This place felt like home when I first stepped on campus and it was definitely my home for the past 4 years. The softball program is AMAZING. I love the people here. I really grew as a person since being at this school and I wish I could do it all over again.
Hiram College is perfect for students who want that “small hometown” feeling. You will know all of your professors and your professors will know you. It may be located in the middle of nowhere, but that is what makes it such a close community. Parties are not big here, but academic performance, sporting events, and campus involvement is huge!
Hiram college is everything I thought it would be. It is challenging academically. I always fell as though my professors listen to what I have to say. My opinions are always valued. I have met so many wonderful students that have become friends. My RA’s are absolutely amazing! I couldn’t be happier

Looking back, I have to say that there really isn't much that I wasn't prepared for in the jump to college life. The only piece of advice that I would have to give myself in Highschool that I know of now is to apply to far more scholarships than I did, given that now I am facing bills I am unable to pay without extra financial support. Other than a higher degree of scholarship hunting, I would simply confirm a lot of suspicions I had about campus life so that move in day wouldn't be quite so nerve-racking.
Very small school in the middle of nowhere with a lot of quirky people & good professors.
My classmates are friendly, reassuring, helpful, determined, and caring.
Students definitely have a say on what goes on at school and on campus, but some things are very hard to change in this school.For example, in some ways this community is inching on tiptoes towards being more environmentally-minded, but it has taken a lot of tugging to get where we are. Professors and students have both been pulling, but it has been hard to get through to the top powers. It can be very frustrating.
The only thing I wish I knew before going to Hiram College is that some professors use a syllabus and solely rely on you know what is on the syllabus and prepare yourself for each class without the professor telling you what homework you have. I wasn't prepared for that from the transition of high school to college.
Students are able to get involved on campus and they are able to form good relationships with their professors. Our small class size and the intelligent levels of our professors allows students to learn a lot from them adn to get to know them on a personal level.
If someone is looking for a small close community, Hiram is perfect. They must be able to make their fun and be okay with living 20-30 minutes from most things (stores, movies, restaurants,etc). It is also a pretty low-key school, not very fancy, with most people valuing comfort over fashion for clothes, etc. The most important things to consider are if you are willing to work hard and on your own because there is a lot of focus on the individual because of the size and are willing to live pretty much in the middle of nowhere.
The amount of support offered by the weekend college staff with regards to the students. They understand that being an adult and going back to school is important and special and they make effort to make you feel comfortable.
how cool the kids are
The meal plan. We are forced to have an all-you-can eat meal plan and the food is not nearly as good as the price we pay.
Hiram is a small liberal art college that makes you feel like your special and not just a number in a large lecture hall of students.
Somebody who has to be in the middle of everything (talking about entertainment) would probably not be a good candidate for Hiram. Someone who doesn't like to stay in and just hang out or entertain themselves (this is the biggest complaint I hear on campus). Also, someone who wants to blend into the background and just be a "number" in the classroom should not go to Hiram because the classes are very small and the professors know everyone. It is pretty much impossible to do well in a class without a lot of participation (usually).
