3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Would not recommend becoming affiliated.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletic facilities are amazing but there is no big hype around any big game day.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: 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.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors are very passionate about what they do. They want to see nothing but success from each and every student.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: An internship is required for graduation. Hiram makes you put yourself out there to meet new people and build your network.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Hiram is a very safe campus. There is virtually no crime or assault of any kind.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Housing is okay. East is the best on campus living and there are town houses.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life isn't really prevelant on campus. I don't know too much about it.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Being a football player, I get first hand experience in the realm of school sports. The coaches love what they do and will push athletes to be better both on and off the field.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Its great. The people are friendly and there are so many different kinds of people there.

1 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: The school had a wanted man on campus and we have no campus safety and also the surrounding area is very hostile

1 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: This school will not help you succeed in the real world. My horses lost weight and conditioning, and training. I was embarrassed to come home thats how bad my horses were. The riding program is terrible the instructors are unprofessional, the horses are unsound, and the whole program will not teach how to train but how to ride in their eyes what is correct this is false.

1 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: The housing is terrible they are old trailers and i have killed tons of mice in my dorm room

1 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: The only sport at this school is the equestrian however the horses are unsound, and arena are in poor condition and the athletes are overweight

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The normal dorms could do a little updating but, with how the school is budgeting everything, it's pretty good. The people that you can meet if you just step out of your dorm room 9/10 of the time amazing people that you should go talk to if you ever get to have the chance to. The RA's try to o their best to bring life onto the floor if it's needed and you can depend on most of them if you ever need to.

1 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The nightlife here isn't the best, you'll have to travel over to a different town or school if you would want to not go to the same place over and over again. To be honest, the best way to have a good time for that whole 'nightlife' feel is to just go do something with a group of friends all together.

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There's at least one or two small parties every weekend on campus but, they're not always the best (unless it's Springfest, that is a totally different case all together).

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The academics here may be changeling her and it's hard to get that glorious 'A' that we all want but, that's done on purpose to make the students gain more experience points to level up as a human being. The workload is a lot depending on if you schedule your time and choose your classes wisely so that aren't slowly dying every time you walk out of the classroom. the professor that I've had already were willing to help me out if I had any questions regarding anything class related. Hiram also has tutoring for that little extra kick of support if you ever need it. The popular places to study are either at the library, your dorm room (don't ever do that it's a trap), or in the common areas of each dorm.

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: Sure, we have the varying backgrounds from all over the world here at Hiram. However, there's a few people that just so intolerant to other people's life stories because they come from a privileged lifestyle. good for them, let them stay that way but once you take that handful of people out of your mind, the rest of the community on campus is supportive of each other and are willing to talk and learn about you and how you are as a person. A lot of the time, you can gain a new perspective on life when you can talk through the differences that each person may have for each other.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Like at most colleges, we have a a drug scene but, in my opinion it isn't too severe yet. Most people don't pressure others to drink or smoke with them because they know that you shouldn't force anybody to do something that they don't wanna do. Also, during the weekends there are a few drunk and high people but, that is to be aspect on a college campus.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: This is terrible for me to say about one of the many organizations that I am a part of on campus. Okay, we have some stuff to work on within our community but most the Greek Life Family acknowledges that fact. We are going to have some changes happening with our policies and producers so that we have save our tails and have more fun with-in all the Greek organizations and the campus as a whole. There are no Greek housing on campus because of the small size but that's not a huge issue with the quality and atmosphere of the dorms and townhouses. The Greek organizations put on a hand full of parties for the whole campus to take part in but, the most people don't go to them therefor, they aren't always the best. However, you can meet some amazing people there if you just step out of the shell that ya in and talk to some people.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Hiram is VERY safe in my opinion. I can walk across campus at 2 o'clock in the morning on a weekend and nothing will happen to me. If

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The classes that I took this past school year were interesting, helpful and changeling for myself. Our class sizes at Hiram are small (an average 12 students to 1 teacher) so, I was able to get to know my professor more and he or she was more willing to help me out of I had any questions about the assignments on hand. I may sound scary, with the whole 'changeling' aspect that I briefly mentioned, but the professors do that on purpose to engage you more and help you out more in the long run. Finally, the class I took were discussion based. with this aspect we aren't just staring at a power point presentation for 2 hours. the class gets to talk among each other and throw off ideas at each other, which in the long-run, helps you think in a different way and may just help with whatever paper you may have to write later on.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: As a rising up sophomore, I'm not to into the networking pool as much as I would love to say that I am. However, if you stop on by the career center, I am sure that they can hook you up with something. The career center was VERY helpful when it came around for all the reviewing and polishing the advisers did to make my resume shine more.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Some of the dorms are okay. None of the dorms have air-conditioning which would be really nice in the spring/fall.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
