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

3 College Senior

Facilities: Hiram, is small, but they campus is beautiful and peaceful. We have multiple gardens, lots of lawn space and trees/ plants on campus. The KC ( Kennedy Center) is where the Bistro is and Bookstore ( fairly cheap for Hiram Gear). THere is a game room and a lot of student orientated departments that are located in there. The Library is gorgeous, especially the 4th floor Clock Tower. The Campus tries to entertain the 1000 kids that are on campus during the school year!

3 College Senior

Facilities: Hiram has amazing professors and faculty/ staff. They truly care about the student's progress and help a student succeed. The Financial Aid department has always helped me. Hiram is considered to be an Ivy League school of the Mid-west! I am a Political Science and Sociology Double Major with French Minor. I have gained so much through these programs and intend to follow my dreams to work in Africa. With the knowledge and understanding that my professors helped me attain, my dreams continue to become reality.

Hiram has over 50 clubs that the school supports, including Rugby, Students for Liberty and High Steppers. We also have six Greek Life Social Clubs, that are with great people. If you are a vegetarian, vegan or you just like amazing organic food, they have a co-op kitchen that students apply to and can be accepted to be a part of. Hiram has many opportunities for its size, you just have to make an effort to make it fun!

Hiram is small and for people like me, it is fantastic. Others may look at it and think Hiram is not the right fit for them because it is so small and there is nothing to do. Truth is, I am so busy, I am never bored.

We are small but wonderful community and to fully appreciate it, you should look into Hiram.

4 College Junior

Facilities: The athletic center on Hiram's campus is really welcoming. There are three gyms--one for the basketball games and two for practice. One has a track above it. This gym has a huge court with three separate small courts. The student center is where our bookstore is as well as a computer center and a food place other than the dining hall, Its great!

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.
