James Romanowski, R.A., Whitcomb 204
Year/Major: Class of 2015, Nursing
Hometown: Chagrin Falls, Ohio
Favorite thing about Hiram: My favorite thing about Hiram is the size of the classes and how I can get the one on one attention for my professors when it is needed. I also like the smaller size of the campus because I feel like I know almost everyone who is on campus.
My name is James Romanowski. I am currently a sophomore nursing student, RA, and a football player. I attended Kenston High School and also did post-secondary at Lakeland Community College. I enjoy meeting new people and am willing to help someone who is in need of help.
Courtney Freyhauf, R.A., Whitcomb 215
Year/Major: Class of 2015, Environmental Studies
Hometown: Macedonia, OH
Favorite thing about Hiram: I love the small classes, the close connection students can build with professors, and the connectives and closeness I fell to everyone in my Hiram family.
I am a Sophomore student, studying Environmental studies, biology and sociology. I have already studied buddhism and gross national happiness in Bhutan, which was an amazing experience, and I will be studying in the south western United State. When I am not an R.A. I also work as an admissions navigator, at the field station taking care of animals, and spend a lot of time with my friends. After Hiram I plan to attend graduate school and work towards my doctorate so that I may one day teach at a college like Hiram.
Jill Kramer, R.A., Whitcomb 308
Year/Major: Class of 2014, English
Hometown: Cleveland, Ohio
Favorite thing about Hiram: I would have a really hard time picking my sole favorite thing about Hiram! I think one of the best things about this school is the professors though; I know that any admissions worker on any campus will tell you the professors really care, but ours really do. I have learned far above and beyond what I would have expected going into my first year of college, and there is not one professor on campus that I have had a negative experience with in class. Teachers here have high expectations and will do everything they can to help you if you ever need it. The community here is absolutely amazing, and to be able to know professors so well and see them so active on campus is a truly individual college experience.
I'm an English major with an Educational Studies minor. I work in the Career Center as well as the Writing Center on campus aside from being an RA. I'm vice president of the English Society on campus and am involved in Delta Chi Lambda, Newman Club, PRYSM, ASL Club, and Students for Liberty. I ran cross country for the first time this year! I love to read almost as much as I love people (I'm very talkative and outgoing). I plan on finding a position teaching English as a foreign language overseas upon graduation, and I think that I would like to eventually go to graduate school to become a librarian.
Bobby Noel, R.A., Whitcomb 319
Year/Major: Class of 2014, Music
Hometown: Struthers, Ohio
Favorite thing about Hiram: That no matter where you go on campus, someone is always there to greet you with a smile.
I am a fun and creative person who loves Hiram and wants to share my leadership skills with anyone that wants to learn a little.
Julia Fabich, R.A., Whitcomb 403
Year/Major: Class of 2015, Early Childhood Education
Hometown: Ashland, Ohio
Favorite thing about Hiram: My favorite thing about Hiram is the small community. It is nice seeing familiar faces every day and creating friendships that will hopefully last a lifetime. Everyone here is really nice and cares about each other. The connections I have made with other peers and professors have helped me be the person I am today. All of these people have helped me along the way and I am very thankful for this campus and the support I receive.
I am currently a sophomore majoring in Early Childhood Education. I am an Admission Office Student Worker where I do data processing and I am also an Admission Navigator where I give tours to prospective students visiting campus. A few things that I participate in on campus are Education Club, American Sign Language Club, and I am the Sponsorship Chair of Relay for Life. In High School, I was in National Honor Society and graduated with Honors. I also played softball during my high school career. Every summer I attend a mission trip to Steubenville, Ohio where we repair houses to help those in need.
