1. www.hiram.edu will have the most current information about any delay/closing here at Hiram. You should be able to find the information in a box in the upper left-hand corner of the page (where a picture is usually posted, except  in  these  emergency  situations). Please note: We do not post delay/closing information on home.hiram.edu, only on www.hiram.edu.
  2. The Information Line: 330.569.5959 will also have the most current information, and should be called first. Then if you need more information you should call the Office of Professional and Graduate Studies directly.
  3. Through The CampusWire.com, we now have the ability to send you a text message. In order for you to receive Emergency Closing Information you must make sure we have your current cell phone number at all times.
  4. When possible, we will try to send out an email to your Hiram account. However, this should only be considered as a back-up, and you should always use the website and/or information phone line as your primary source of information about classes.

These sources will be our only methods of communicating with you in the event of an emergency, and you should not expect to receive a phone call from our office. Trying to call each student individually causes a delay in getting the information out and is not a practical way to reach a large number of students quickly.

As always, we urge you to use your own judgment regarding whether or not it is safe to travel. Because people come from all over, it is impossible for us to know driving conditions for each of you. If you do not feel you can get here safely, please email your instructor at his or her Hiram email and copy our office (hwc@hiram.edu). We will contact you as soon as possible to confirm that we received the message.
