1. Please go to www.hiram.edu for the most current information about any closings or delays. Information is also available on Hiram’s official Twitter and Facebook accounts.
  2. The College has the ability to send you a text message. In order for you to receive Emergency Closing Information via a text message, we need to maintain your current cell phone number at all times. Please stop by the Registrar’s Office in Teachout Price Hall, call them at 330.569.5210, or email them at registrar@hiram.edu, if you need to update your cell phone number.
  3. When possible, an email will be sent to your Hiram account. However, you should always use the website and/or the Information Line as your primary source of information.

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 (mais@hiram.edu). We will contact you as soon as possible to confirm that we received the message.
