Celebrate 50 years of the Barrow Field Station with dinner, nature hikes, and tours.  The celebration continues into the night with stargazing and a bonfire with two bands!  Shuttles will provide transportation throughout the evening from campus to the Field Station and back.

40th Anniversary of the Weekend College

Weekend College alumni are invited to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the program at Anthology, a reception where people will share memories and items from their days in the program.   

New for 2017

We’ve added a few new items to the list of favorite Alumni Weekend activities.  Be sure to check out:


  • Rick Hyde’s FUN-eral: A celebration of 25 years of Hiram College theater in honor of Rick Hyde’s retirement.  
  • Time Travel Tech and Trek: A hands-on demonstration of how the new iPads can be used in the classroom – with a light Hiram history lesson!
  • All Alumni Reunion Dinner and Awards Celebration: We’re having one Alumni Dinner on Saturday where alumni from all class years and programs will gather as one family.  Those in reunion years will gather at individual class receptions before the dinner.
