Hiram College


Discover the answers with Connect

At Hiram, learning is not limited to the classroom. It happens in one-on-one conversations, through athletics, in club meetings and through work in the field. Hiram Connect will prompt you to step back and reflect upon how these learning experiences relate back to your coursework and what you are discovering about your unique purpose and calling.


What do you want to explore – create – invent – solve?

Where do you want to go?

Who do you want to be?

Connect fosters career and personal development at every stage of your academic journey. It’s our way of connecting all of the coursework, internships, study away explorations and hands-on learning opportunities you ex­perience, and encouraging you to reflect upon them. It’s these experiences – working together – that will allow you to consider not only what you want to do, but also the kind of person you want to become.

Hands-on Requirement

All Hiram students complete an internship, study away exploration or research experience as part of Hiram Connect, starting with the Class of 2019.

Internships Study Away Research

A Four-Step Process

You’re not in this alone. The hands-on requirement is just one part of Connect’s four-step process . At each stage, you’ll consider how your skills, gifts and talents might work together with your personal values to make a change in or meet the needs of your community.
