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.
Review Hiram College
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.
Hiram is engaging full throttle in its initiative to get students in the work place. Through its new Connect program, internships, study abroad opportunities and in depth learning options are required in some combination to ensure our ability to make an impact. After all, we are meant to be the generation that changes everything!
