New Student Institute – Dates to be Determined

In August, you will return to campus for New Student Institute. This is a four-day series of programs focused on exploring campus life and the various aspects of college. Throughout the four days, you will attend social activities, gather information about college resources, and learn what is expected of you as a Hiram College Community member. You will meet many other new students and interact with our student leaders. Prepare yourself for four days of exciting, interactive activities. You may even be a part of a square dance!

During Institute, you will also attend your First-Year Enduring Questions or Interdisciplinary class. The First-Year Enduring Questions and Interdisciplinary classes are a series of seminars on special topics across the liberal arts and sciences, designed to continue growth in college-level writing and oral communications. Each Enduring Questions or Interdisciplinary group consists of 12 to 16 students, an upper-classman course assistant, and a professor. This First-Year Enduring Questions or Interdisciplinary group serves as the first step in the transition to college life.
