I love my school! The only thing I really dislike is the proximity to home. I wish I had gone somewhere further to get the full experience. However, overall I fell in love with this school. The campus is beautiful. The small class size and personal environment make me feel like the professors truly care about you and your learning experience for your future career. The students are very diverse which makes for a lot of different philosophies and opinions to learn from. The liberal environment adds to the experience of personal growth.

Hiram is engaging full throttle in its initiative to get students in the work place. Through its new Connect program, internships, study abroad opportunities and in depth learning options are required in some combination to ensure our ability to make an impact. After all, we are meant to be the generation that changes everything!

There is a large variety with regards to living options and choosing where to dorm.

One building is extremely old and smells horrible, the Quad. Mostly athletes love there.

However, the other buildings are incredible!

The hill and BC are both good qualities dorms. I've really enjoyed living in them.

The townhouses and tge east hall suites are obviously the nicest because they are so new to campus.

I cannot wait to be able to explore them in the next two years.

They are placed conveniently to the rest of campus and it is extremely easy to get to class on time.

The social atmosphere is what you choose to make it.

I have a lot of friends and enjoy what is offered to do on campus.
