On Sunday, July 16, 2017, Hiram College hosted the International ACAC College Counselor Tour, a gathering of international admission counselors representing countries from across the globe. The counselors have been touring other colleges and universities to gain insight into admission practices in the United States.
The 27 counselors were welcomed to campus by Lindajean Western, Vice President for Enrollment and Marketing, who spoke to the group about Hiram’s New Liberal Arts philosophy and the Tech and Trek program that puts an iPad Pro, Apple pencil and keyboard bundle into the hands of every one of its full-time traditional students.
Following the welcome, Hiram students, acting as guides, gave groups of counselors tours of the campus. The tours were followed by activities and a panel discussion with faculty and students in East Hall. The day concluded with a meal in the Dining Hall.
