Founded in 1850, Hiram College cherishes its heritage as an institution of academic excellence and rare distinction.
Here are a few reasons why people choose Hiram:
College costs are rising everywhere, but Hiram guarantees tuition will not increase over a student's four years.
In our unique semester system, students study a normal course load for twelve weeks, and then spend the last three weeks concentrating on one class.
Small class sizes mean individualized attention. Hiram students get to know their professors on a one-on-one level, collaborating in research and fieldwork.
All study abroad programs are run in-house, with Hiram staff and professors shaping and leading each trip. Twenty-nine percent of the Class of 2011 studied abroad.
Classroom instruction meets real world application through our seven Centers of Distinction, which bring in speakers, provide internships, hold workshops and more.
Established in 1967, this treasure trove of natural resources provides students with the opportunity to supplement classroom activities with hands-on learning experiences.
