The school is in a small town. Everyone knows each other and the professors take all the time in the world to help students achieve their goals.

The lack of passion within the student body is absolutely disheartening. The academics are great but you don't just go to a school for school. It becomes your home. Hiram College is absolutely dull and lifeless. If you don't mind sitting in your room studying all day, it's a good fit. Having to search for human interaction is exhausting sometimes.
