Hiram College is a small college in rural Ohio. Hosting roughly 1000 students, there is always something to do on campus. However, it would be best for students to own a car since even the closest mart is 4 miles away in Garrettsville. As a nursing student, the academic demand is exceptionally high, and students that are not 100% devoted to their coursework quickly find themselves behind and some forced to drop out. The professors are caring and are willing to help students to the best of their ability. I could not have survived the first semester at Hiram without the help of my professors for sure.

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 college is wonderful if you're looking for a small university. However, given the teeny-tiny size of the campus, they just don't have enough resources to offer. As a commuter student, I'd hope for a schedule that works for me, and unfortunately, Hiram just can't offer enough class times to make things run smoothly. From what I've seen of on-campus living compared to other colleges, the dorms are run-down, old, and just in need of a serious re-boot. However, small class-sizes And friendly professors make it all a little worth-while.
