The Hiram Hi
Alumni Weekend 2015
Alumni Weekend
Hiram College has always held a special place in the hearts and minds of many students, but what it means to be a Hiram graduate differs greatly from person to person. For you, maybe it was a study abroad trip, club activity or certain class that made the difference in YOUR Hiram experience. Now the Alumni Executive Board wants to hear your story!

New this year at Alumni Weekend: the 2015 Alumni Weekend Essay Contest.

Share what it means to you to be a Hiram alumnus/a and you could win one of three great prizes:

1) An all-access pass to the 2015 Alumni Weekend festivities
2) A free night’s stay on campus
3) A free reunion dinner.

For more details on the contest rules, please click HERE. Deadline for submissions is May 1, 2015.

Join us for a unique Hiram Night Out with a Show!

Join alumni and friends for a Hiram College reception at Beck Center for the Arts in Lakewood followed by the comedy play Lend Me a Tenor.

"Scott Spence does it again! Is there anything this talented director can't do? Lend Me a Tenor, a zany classic farce, is his current gift to Cleveland theater audiences."
Shirley MacFarland, Sun News

"This Beck Center production of Lend Me a Tenor comes close to perfection (maybe even achieves it)."
Laura Kennelly, Cool Cleveland

Attendees will enjoy a pre-show wine, beer and heavy hors d'oeuvres reception featuring a special Director's Talk with Scott Spence.
