Student Organizations

Hiram College has more than 60 registered student clubs and organizations, including academic societies, cultural groups, sports clubs, political action and special interest groups. These clubs and organizations provide students with endless opportunities to experience new activities, ideas and beliefs, develop public speaking and leadership skills, and to meet and interact with other students, faculty, staff and community members who share a similar interest.
