Who do you want to be?

Discover your answers with Hiram Connect.

Hiram Connect fosters career and personal development at every stage of your academic journey. It's our way of connecting all of the coursework, internships, study away explorations and hands-on learning opportunities you ex­perience, and encouraging you to reflect upon them. It's these experiences – working together – that will allow you to consider not only what you want to do, but also the kind of person you want to become.

At Hiram, learning is not limited to the classroom. It happens in one-on-one conversations, through athletics, in club meetings and through work in the field. Hiram Connect will prompt you to step back and reflect upon how these learning experiences relate back to your coursework and what you are discovering about your unique purpose and calling.

Hands-on Requirement
