Hiram's quaint is reflected in its facilities. Some of the more recent additions include brand-new turf on the football field. Generally, the facilities are well-maintained, too; the athletic center is like new, boasting an indoor track, a pool, a workout room, a weight room, and a dance studio. In terms of other amenities, the dining hall is clean, crisp, and the hub of student life. Sure, people find things to complain about (the walk up the hill after dinner, the variety of food, etc.), but overall, it serves its purpose of feeding students. When it comes to living spaces, the dorms are perfectly average. They may seem a bit dated, but they are actually quite spacious. Plus, most have bunkable or loftable beds, which are great! Freshmen are limited to certain dorms and room styles (the traditional double), but after their first year, they can choose from apartment-style living, cooperative living, or townhouses. Just keep in mind that you are required to live on campus at least until you are a senior, so you are bound to these facilities until then.
The Kennedy Center is Hiram’s student union, housing the bookstore, a computer lab, The Bistro, club rooms, and lounge space. It’s a pretty simple building that has honestly seen better days, but the administration is making an effort to improve it. Recently, the basement was renovated, even if it's still mostly dead space that no one can seem to find a use for, which is definitely a bummer. Some facilities at Hiram fall a bit short of expectations (such as the student center), but others (like the gym) compensate for the shortcomings. And even those places that fall short serve to remind students that Hiram is a tiny school doing the best it can, and a little dead space adds to its quaint charm.
