Centers of Distinction

We're following four freshmen through their first year of college. We'll be there as they take their first exam, prepare for their big game, meet new friends and make their unique mark on the Hiram College community.

Back for Spring With one semester under their belts, the freshmen returned to campus in early January after winter break. The Spring 2013 semester is proving to be exciting, as they have all gotten involved in new activities outside the classroom.
