Thank you for the biggest Hiram Giving Day ever!

Thank you to Hiram alumni and friends for uniting and making our 2nd Annual HIRAM GIVING DAY the biggest giving day in Hiram’s history raising over $400,000 in one single day! Together, we have made a huge impact for our students and the entire Hiram College community and we can’t thank you enough.

Students will sport Vasque hiking boots through Tech and Trek
Hiram College is thrilled to announce a new partnership with the Vasque division of Red Wing Shoes. As an exciting extension to the emerging Tech and Trek program every 2017 full-time traditional college student will receive a top-end pair of hiking boots. 

Alumni Virtual Book Club
We’re excited to announce the launch of a virtual book club focused on professional development and personal growth for Hiram College alumni. The group will be an online community where alumni can connect with each other and enjoy books on professional topics such as business, communications, leadership, productivity and more. Participation is completely free for Hiram College Alumni.
You can sign up here or keep reading to learn more. Sign-ups for the first round of the program close on May 14.
