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.

Academics: I like the faculty a lot, but I really dislike Hiram's setup of classes. For instance, they have a very weird curriculum where you have to take 8 different classes that are different "methods" of teaching. For other schools, this seems like a joke so it's hard to find classes that will transfer at all. Also, the colloquium and FSEM classes are really varied so it's hard to actually get really useful writing skills. The teachers are really great though, I haven't found a teacher that hasn't been able to keep my attention. And it's nice to have small classes.

Academics: You can even create a class if you want to! That doesn't happen anywhere else like it does here!!

4 College Student

Academics: At Hiram they do not have an Engineering class on campus. If you decide to go into the Engineering program it is a 3-2 dual-degree program. You choose what kind of engineering you want to do ie. Mechanical, Chemical, Civil, etc. and then you find out what degree you will get at Hiram (3 years). Once you complete that degree you have automatic acceptance to Case Western where you receive your Engineering Degree (2 years). For example if your going to be a Mechanical Engineer, you would spend 3 years at Hiram getting your Physics Degree and if you keep your grades up, you have automatic acceptance to Case where you will work towards your Engineering Degree. In 5 years you will have 2 different bachelor's degrees. One in Physics and one in Mechanical Engineering.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Hiram's academics are its best aspect. The professors, programs, and classes are all fitted to serve the students and ensure that the students succeed. New York Times education editor Loren Pope actually featured Hiram in his book, "Colleges that Change Lives," singling out the College for its concern for both students' personal and academic welfare. 

There are several centers for excellence that Hiram offers to students so that they can focus on specific things that are not necessarily addressed in the curriculum, including the Center for the Study of Ethics and Values and the Center for Science Education. Hiram may seem sub-par in some areas (especially when it comes to the long cold winters), but it makes up for its cons when it comes to academics.
