3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Getting scholarships is essential if you want to go here. It's so expensive. I can't imagine what someone would do if they couldn't get financial aid. It would be so bad.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Hiram's campus is really really safe. This probably has to do with the fact that it's in the middle of nowhere but that doesn't mean it's not creepy to walk at night when there's kind of a lot of unlit pathways. In the summer, I walked all over campus at night though, and I would again because it's so safe. There's blue light up security poles all over campus where you can call security and they will be there within minutes. It's really safe.

2 College Freshman

Academics: I like the faculty a lot, but I really dislike Hiram's setup of classes. For instance, they have a very weird curriculum where you have to take 8 different classes that are different "methods" of teaching. For other schools, this seems like a joke so it's hard to find classes that will transfer at all. Also, the colloquium and FSEM classes are really varied so it's hard to actually get really useful writing skills. The teachers are really great though, I haven't found a teacher that hasn't been able to keep my attention. And it's nice to have small classes.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Whitcomb completely sucks, but I hear that Bowler Hall and the Quad have relatively good housing. So pretty much, everywhere is okay-ish except Whitcomb.

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There is no off-campus housing.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: There's parties and everything, but from what I hear, they aren't that great. A lot of them get busted for being too loud but underage drinkers don't seem to get in trouble a lot either. I'm not a partier so I don't have a lot of firsthand experience.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The men and women are relatively attractive, but there's not a lot of different personalities to find. Many of the people who play sports dress exactly the same and it's boring.

3 College Freshman

Parking: I don't have a car but all my friends who do just have trouble finding spots close to where they want to be sometimes.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: Well, the sports teams have hardly won anything but that doesn't mean the people who play them aren't passionate about the sports. I'm personally not interested in them.

1 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: IT'S IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE. There are no attractions that you can go to without having to drive at least 15-30 minutes. There's some activities on campus and some cultural events but they don't have too much interest for most students. The safety is almost guaranteed which is good. But this town just feels so suffocating at times because it feels like you're not doing anything. Or at least, that's how I feel. Others might feel differently.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Many students come from different countries and different states which means that there's a lot of diversity in terms of race, religion, and sexualities. I have kind of noticed that every kind of person that goes here stays in their own group of people exactly like them and it's a little hard to meet people because of this. It's just more difficult to meet a wide variety of personalities.

2 College Freshman

Computers: I like the fact that they give you a decent amount of money for printing papers and whatnot. However, that's your money that you're using anyways so it's not like they do it for you. The network connection and speed are sooooooo bad. So bad. It constantly cuts out or stops working and whenever it's a busy part of the year, it gets so much worse because everyone's using it. You definitely need your own laptop if you ever want to get things done. You don't need a printer though, it takes up more space than you'd ever want it to.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I think one of the main things that I find annoying about Hiram's strictness when it comes to academics is that attendance is a HUGE deal. It's only annoying because a lot of the things you could probably learn on your own but you can't do that. It's like high school all over again. Their strictness for noise levels are varied in each dorm, but it's usually fine. Some dorms are alcohol free too.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: I see people from many different cultures in my classes and when I'm walking around campus. And everyone seems to accept them and include them

3 College Freshman

Facilities: We always have fun wherever it is we decide to go. The facilities are great too

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Everyone is just so considerate of one another. The professors really do care about how you are doing and are willing to help. Hiram has definitely become my second home

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel so safe here. And I don't see crime here

College Freshman

Athletics: I work a lot. So I don't go to many events

College Freshman

Academics: I just started and haven't done much yet

3 College Freshman

Weather: It's Ohio. Snow one day then warm the next

College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't really know anything about it

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: People are really social from what I've seen

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It's mostly just fast food

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I see everything as being fair for the most part

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: We got what we needed without many problems

Hiram College goes by many terms, some of which include, “quaint,” “charming,” and “loveable.” But mostly, the school’s atmosphere is simple and peaceful. The atmosphere at Hiram is different than that of any big state school because everyone seems to know and care for each other. That might be the best part about Hiram: the people. There are some things that the College is missing, such as better dining hall selections and a more active nightlife, but all in all, the people and the academics of Hiram make up for the College’s shortcomings.

Because Hiram is a residential college, most of the campus community resides on campus, which can be both frustrating and helpful. It’s frustrating when you wish you had more independence and freedom, but it’s helpful when you’re a first-year student looking to make friends and find your niche on campus.
