Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

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.

Hiram Student Reviews

College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I don't know what to rate this because I didn't search for internships as a freshman.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This wasn't a good fit for me. It's so isolated and it can get depressing because of that. I did meet some very wonderful people there, and I didn't mind the classes or how convenient it was to get around. Plus, it feels very nice to be around grass and trees all the time. But it was just so repetitive that it made me feel like I wasn't doing much. Everyone is different though, and I'm sure there's many people who have had great experiences here.

2 College Sophomore

Nightlife: The only places to go are to the townhouses for parties or "Da Hub," which is the only bar on campus. I haven't been to either because it just doesn't sound fun. A lot of students spend nights playing games with floormates, or something.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Unless you have a car and can go to Streetsboro or Garrettsville, you're stuck with the bistro and it's not the greatest. Plus, the hours are just dumb, in my opinion. But even if you have a car, there's pretty much only chain places around.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: I think the professors are very intelligent and would like to move forward faster, but some of the students probably wouldn't be able to keep up then, so it seems like the academics aren't great. I also knew of a lot of people who were there without getting very good grades in high school. But there are some very intelligent people on campus as well.
