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.

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

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.
