Leah - 07/12/2022

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.

Nikkia - 12/29/2021

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!

Gabriella - 10/20/2020

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

Hiram is family away from family. I would go to Hiram if I had to make the choice all over again.

Hiram College FAQS

  1. What is the Acceptance Rate at Hiram College?

    The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Hiram College is 54%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    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.

  5. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    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.

  6. What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

    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.

  8. What kind of person should attend this school?

    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.

  9. What's unique about your campus?

    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.

  13. What kind of person should not attend this school?

    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).
