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.

Health & Safety: Phones around campus keep you arms length from safety.

Health & Safety: No Reason to Worry – Students frequently leave valuables unattended (like leaving your Mac to go to the bathroom) because theft is pretty uncommon. However, student athlete belongings are apparently being stolen out of the sports complex...

Health & Safety: Campus Safety has a lot of good persons working for it and do their job effectively. The Hiram Police, however, cause problems due to misconceptions about what they are doing and sometimes they are a bit aggressive in their enforcement of campus policies.

Hiram is generally perceived as a safe campus. The Hiram police spend a lot of time patrolling campus, and the Campus Safety officers are always on the move. In addition, there are emergency call stations located strategically around campus to use in case of an emergency. Thankfully, they don't really need to be used.

As far as the health of students, the "Hiram Plague" is a campus-wide pandemic that engulfs the student body every fall. Just about a month into the semester, everyone succumbs to a cold. Thankfully, the Julia Church Health Center is always giving out cough medicine and other helpful trinkets to keep students healthy. In fact, the health center does programming throughout the year to promote general health on campus. They do things like "Wipedown Wednesdays," where the campus is encouraged to disinfect doorknobs and light switches.
