Campus Day, which began in 1921, is a long-standing tradition at Hiram College.
Each year, early in the fall semester, students have the day off from classes to engage in community service projects. First year students volunteer with their First Year Colloquium and Writing Seminar classmates and professor, and upperclassmen have the opportunity to get involved in service projects with student organizations they are a part of.
Campus Day is a strong example of Hiram College's commitment to community engagement. Students volunteer with many diverse agencies on Campus Day, but some of our regular community partner agencies for this day include:
- Hattie Larlham (serving children with developmental disabilities)
- Hiram Farm Living and Learning Community
- Hiram Field Station
- Hiram gardens and parks
- Hiram House Camp
- Happy Trails Farm Animal Sanctuary
- King Kennedy Center
- Little Village Early Learning Center
- Lunch Bunch (meal for area seniors)
- Renaissance Community Center
