Hiram College


As is Hiram tradition, students had a day free from class last week to give back to the community on Campus Day.

On Sept. 19, students and faculty volunteered at a number of locations throughout Northeast Ohio. Freshmen worked in groups with their First Year Colloquium classmates and professors, while upperclassmen volunteered with student organizations.

Take a look at the day in photos:
