3 College Freshman

Weather: It's Ohio. Snow one day then warm the next

3 Recent Alumnus

Weather: Snow days can be bad at times.

3 College Senior

Weather: Hiram is in Ohio- close enough to the lake to get affected by Lake Effect Snow, but not enough to cancel. However, despite the snow- Spring, Summer and Fall are gorgeous. There are so many trees on campus that seeing the full transition of all the seasons is breathtaking! If you don't know how Ohio weather works, it can be 90 one day and 65 the next. Ohio's weather is never that predictable- she likes to keep things spicy.

3 College Senior

Weather: We're in the snow belt off of the Great Lakes, so during the winter we always get the worst of it. Lots of ice storms. Classes aren't usually cancelled. It isn't all bad though. People often go sledding down the big hills we have here, or "ice skating" in the streets when it's really bad. Also, the campus is small, so you never need to walk more than ten minutes to get anywhere. The first day of spring everyone goes outside. Liveliness day of the year here.

Weather: It's NE Ohio – You get the best and worst of all 4 seasons in NE Ohio

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Hiram is notorious for having long, cold winters, very hot summers, and gorgeous springs and autumns. From June to September, it is very warm. It cools down in October and snows from November until about April. Most students are from around the Ohio area, so they are used to the weather, but for those who are unaccustomed to it, it can be a bit of a shock. The winters, though cold, are beautiful. Many students go sledding, have snowball fights, and do other cold-weather activities. But driving around in the winter is strongly advised against for safety reasons.

The school has gotten better in the past couple of years with snow days, with about four or five school cancellations in an academic school year. Although the winters last a long time, they are still beautiful, as are all of the other seasons. Hiram is a very natural campus, so it always seems to look perfect—especially in mid-fall.
