Hiram College’s Northwoods Field Station and the surrounding beauty of northern Michigan’s remote wilderness provide a magnificent setting to begin your own Hiram experience. With permission, students can visit Northwoods almost any time of the year. Most scheduled programs take place in the summer or during the Spring 3-week session. Students interested in summer experiences can participate in scientific research, camp maintenance and caretaker apprenticeship experiences.
For more than 10 years, incoming first-year students have traveled to Northwoods for a pre-college trip called the Northwoods Freshmen Experience. This is a great way to connect with nature, other incoming students and current students and faculty, and enjoy the beauty that this field station has to offer.
