Prior to graduation, students should complete one or more experiential learning opportunities.

Student Senate

Student Senate is the representative student governing body of Hiram College. Senate acts as the liaison between the administration and the students. This relationship takes a variety of forms: participation in forums with faculty/staff and fellow students, helping to plan annual campus-wide activities including Homecoming, Campus Day, Springfest, etc., and generally seeking to address the concerns of the student body. Student Senate also has the role of overseeing approval of new clubs seeking to belong to the Associated Student Organizations (A.S.O.), as well as the budgets of all A.S.O. clubs and all Activities Fund requests.

Kennedy Center Programming Board (KCPB)

The Kennedy Center Programming Board (KCPB) is the campus activities programming board at Hiram College that provides a variety of educational, social, recreational, and cultural programs. As a subgroup of Hiram College Student Senate, its members are dedicated to the college and work hard to present diverse activities for the whole campus community to enjoy. KCPB events are free for all Traditional & WEC students and include large events, such as Homecoming and Springfest.

Intercultural Forum

Intercultural Forum works towards promoting understanding and awareness amongst the culturally diverse students of Hiram. As one of the largest clubs on campus, they organize some of the biggest annual events, including the International Dinner and Talent Show. The dinner and show provide students with an opportunity to interact with people from various backgrounds while showcasing their own unique culture.

College Relations

Students who are chosen to support the College Relations Department work side-by-side with the College Relations team and play an integral role in content development that elevates awareness of campus programs and offerings. Depending on their area of interest, students may have the opportunity to gain valuable, hands-on experience in social media, media relations, proofreading, event planning, photography, video production, graphic design, and web development. Work study and internship opportunities are available.

Sports Information

In the department of Sports Information, students will get an opportunity to work hands-on with Hiram’s 16 intercollegiate sports. While in the office, students can gain valuable experience in the realms of social media, broadcasting and journalism, while also helping with the day-to-day operations and game-day experiences. Interested in a career in collegiate athletics? Sports Information could be for you. Both work study and internship opportunities are available.
