The Office of Residential Education at Hiram aims to supplement, as well as complement, the classroom experience of each residential and commuter student. A goal of our Residential Education program is to motivate students to become interested in the process of their own education and development. In the classroom, the professor is concerned with the development of the intellect. In the Residential Education Office, the staff is concerned with the total effectiveness of individuals in dealing with all aspects of their environment. The staff is concerned with the students’ ability to relate to others, solve problems, make decisions and compromises, and above all, to better understand who they are, through increased awareness of their interests, aptitudes, abilities, and limitations. The office strives to support and ensure the success of our commuter student population.

The staff is responsible for providing activities and programs that will enhance the educational process and provide interesting and entertaining opportunities for students to enjoy. If you have any ideas, questions or concerns, please stop by or call the office.

The Residential Education Office is located in Bates Hall. The telephone number is 330.569.5232.
