What Students Are Saying

3.70 Average Rating
Come to Hiram with an open mind that accepts different people of different cultures.
Jay from Cleveland, OH
Be prepared to put in a lot of time into your work, especially nursing students. Make sure you bring a lot of warm clothes for the winter. You will meet a lot of new people, everyone is friendly.
Samantha from Boardman, OH
Be prepared to learn, get involved, and get to know the other students and faculty.
Janae from Novelty, OH
Don not let the price tag fool you. Hiram is very generous with aid. There is a wide variety of study abroad trips. If you have never done athletics but would like to, coaches here are willing to train you. Also an admission interview is possible though not mandatory, but I highly recommend it- it gives you a chance to explain things better and make a great in-person impression.
Angela from Rome, OH
Things to use around campus are the Writing Center, Career Center, professors, and library on a regular basis. Professors seems like an odd thing to list but at Hiram College the teachers are approachable and always willing to help. They will give out multiple forms in which to contact them including their home phone and in most cases none of them are needed because students can just stop by their office. At most universities there are waiting lists to see a professor and times have to be scheduled but their is always an open door policy here. Furthermore, something people should not miss out on is the involvement fair which takes place each fall. This is a lay out of booths which showcases each active club on campus and is a great way to meet new people. Lastly, each spring there are leadership applications in which students can become resident assistants, teaching assistants, orientation leaders, community council members, and international tour guides. These positions are a great way to be role models, make money, and stuff resumes.
Corey from Ravenna, OH
If you are more of a country/rural kind of person this is great. It is a small community of people in Hiram and Hiram, while expanding, has an average of 1,100 students.

If you are afraid of gaining the freshman 15, no worries, Hiram is on a hill and you have to walk up and down a hill. It really is not that bad, but it is great form of exercise. If you are worried about the fact you ate 2 hamburgers , a piece of cake and a ton of soft serve ice cream at our all you can dining hall , you will have other opportunities to walk it off and enjoy the beautiful campus.

Ashley from Middlefield, OH
Make sure you come to Hiram with ambitions and goals in order to have a successful future (just like at every college). If you are not sure what you plan to do with your life yet, that is fine! You will have until the end of your sophomore year to choose a major and an advisor for that specified major. There is no rush, just make sure to explore all possibilities, be social and respectable with the students and faculty, and enjoy your time at Hiram. Also, Hiram is a very small school, make sure to keep it classy and avoid drama, unless you want your business to be quickly spread around the campus, and I mean quickly.
Rima from Youngstown
If you are thinking about applying here, do it! If you're still unsure, take advantage of the overnight system. This way you can stay with a current student and explore student life and what goes on academically and in the extracurricular realm.
