Drug Safety: All necessary steps are taken to keep everyone safe.

5 College Senior

Drug Safety: To my knowledge Hiram as a private College has not within the past 3+ years in attendance had a drug problem. If there has been any issues involving drugs it has been at a minimal.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Mixed Everything – Drinking is very poplar in all ages groups so is drugs. There's really no peer pressure. Alcohol is visible especially at the townhouses. One time you're fined and have to go to court. Second time, you're kicked out. That applies to drug and underage alcohol usage.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drugs? What Is That? People who drink, drink. People who don't, don't. In fact, I believe that students in Hiram who don't drink have more fun than the ones that do.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: No Pressure – Some people do drugs, but I have yet to see any on campus. Hiram is not the biggest drug scene.

There are old rumors that Hiram used to be a place of liberal amnesty, but that, if true, is largely a vision of the past. Today, underage drinkers are heavily punished. There are "dry" areas on campus (Henry Hall and first-year floors), which mean that anyone with alcohol, regardless of the age of the person in possession of it, is punished. The Hiram Judicial Policy allows for each case to be reviewed individually, but this often creates "double fining." If the police are involved in an alcohol incident, the students must go to court and pay a fine as well as be put on probation and fined by the College. That's why most underage drinkers are restricted to where they can party. The most popular places are the Townhouses and East Hall, which are more independent than the traditional dorms. But even at these places, students are caught regularly.

The party scene at Hiram is very minimal. The only loud parties you will find are at the Townhouses, but they are small by nature. There are no frat houses to throw big parties. For big events such as Halloween, some students will travel to other colleges to party. Drugs are not prominent at Hiram. The only one of note is, obviously, marijuana. Even this drug is largely restricted to off-campus parties and other more secluded areas of campus. Overall, drugs and alcohol are not "in your face" at Hiram.
