  • Center for Scientific Engagement

    The Center for Scientific Engagement at Hiram College encourages students to engage in the scientific process and to explore all matters related to the sciences.

  • James H. Barrow Biological Field Station

    Less than three miles from campus, the James H. Barrow Biological Field Station is an active research and educational facility that not only enhances the science and environmental studies programs, but also delivers enrichment and inspiration for students in all majors.

  • Northwoods Field Station

    So you think you’ve seen everything Hiram has to offer? Not quite…we’re full of surprises! Hiram has an incredible rustic camp, called Northwoods Field Station, located in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. It was built by a fantastic group of Hiram students and faculty in the 1970s, and is in the Hiawatha National Forest, just minutes from Lake Superior.
