Summer Traditions: A Welcome and Heartfelt Thank You

The following is an announcement from President Lori E. Varlotta, Ph.D.
Summer at Hiram College is that wonderful respite between commencement and the start of a new fall term, when faculty, staff and students reflect on their accomplishments, recharge for a new academic year, and gear up to meet a new set of challenges and opportunities. 

This summer also brings with it a season of transition. A hail and a farewell.
