It is a great campus! It only has about1,500 students so class sizes are very suitable for learning, being a students athlete this is very healthful because meeting with professors is fairly easy. All the professors are very friendly and easy to approach. Overall lovely school!

Hiram College is amazing! I love how tight knit the community is! Everyone is so friendly and you always see a familiar face. There are perks of going to a smaller school! The professors are amazing and always willing to help. They are all usually on a first name basis. You get to know them so well that they will invite the class over to their house for dinner! If it’s nice out or if the professors are chill, they will let you work outside or in the coffee shop! Hiram is the perfect place for me. It actually wasn’t my first choice of college, but I couldn’t of picked a better place. I never feel alone or left out. There’s always something to do and people to hangout with. I love Hiram!!
Once described as the "Happiest College in the Land", Hiram college proovided excellent education when I attended there for two years. Now that i am considering reentry much has changed, but the helpful, friendly people are just as helpful and friendly as those who were there before. I sincerely hope i can get a scholarship so I can continue my very belated studies.
