Hiram College

As is tradition with the start of the new academic year, Hiram will kick off the Fall 2012 semester with Opening Convocation at noon on Thursday, Aug. 30, in Hayden Auditorium.

Convocation will open with a procession of students and faculty, welcoming the Hiram community into the new school year. Joyce Dyer, Professor Emerita of English and the John S. Kenyon Chair in English, will also give the presentation: “Where Were You for the Transit of Venus?”

Faculty and students are asked to gather under the Hinsdale Arch by 11:30 a.m. The procession will begin promptly at 11:50.
