Hiram College

Religious Life and Fellowship

Hiram College has a strong tradition of religious freedom, and of support and encouragement for each student to maintain faith and practice religion. The College was founded by the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), and retains a special relationship with the denomination and to the Disciples Church in the village.

  • Student Club: The Net

    The purpose of The Net is to establish and advance witnessing communities of students and faculty who follow Jesus as Savior and Lord: growing in love for God, God’s Word, God’s people of every ethnicity and culture, and God’s purposes in the world; to provide opportunities and a means by which all students can learn about and grow in the teachings of Christianity.

  • Student Club: Hillel

    The purpose of Hillel is to support and promote Jewish culture on Hiram's campus. They also gather to celebrate Jewish tradition and holidays, spreading their traditions to interested students.

Religious Life Internship

In 2004, the Higher Education Commission of the Disciples of Christ funded a religious life internship program which connects students to internships in local churches and offers additional vocational support from Hiram College. Interested students are encouraged to contact Hiram’s Chaplain for openings at area congregations, and for details regarding the program.
