The majority of our residential students are athletes in NCAA Division 3 sports however for the students who are looking for something more flexible in their schedule, we have many alternatives that can help them stay active. These options include:

Many athletes who are out of season even participate in Intramural or Club sports. Its a great way for incoming students to become acclimated to the college scene and for upper class-man to relieve stress before graduation. Lastly, the meshing of classes can help students gain friendships on campus, friendships that may be out of there own age group. One of Hiram Colleges main core values is Community and what better way to build and foster a community then some friendly competition.
