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.

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.

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.
