Driving Instructions to Campus
From the east, take I-80 to Exit 209; then take Ohio Rte. 5 E. (toward Warren). At the intersection with Rte. 82, turn left (north and west, away from Warren) and continue on Rte. 82, which merges with Rte. 700 just south of the college. The college is at the intersection of Routes 82/700 and 305. From the west, take I-80 to Exit 193 (S.R. 44). Take Rte 44 north 6 miles to Rte. 82. Take Rte. 82 E. to Hiram.
Located right on campus, the Hiram Inn (888-447-2646) offers all the modern amenities in a 19th-century setting. The 12 guest rooms, though decorated in the style of the early 1800s, come equipped with air conditioning, cable television, and access to a computer hook-up. Some rooms offer a whirlpool spa or fireplace. Ask for college visitor rates. Aurora, which is 15 to 20 minutes to the west, offers several quite respectable possibilities. Ask for college visitor rates at each. Aurora Inn (Ohio Rtes. 82 and 306; 330-562-6121) offers moderate prices, indoor and outdoor pools, tennis courts, and Jacuzzis. The Inn at Six Flags (800 N. Aurora Rd.; 330-562-9151) is moderately priced. It has an indoor pool with a glass dome that opens in warm weather. For the fitness-minded, there is Mario's International Aurora House Spa and Hotel (35 E. Garfield Rd.; 330-562-9171). Each room has a whirlpool. Mario's is normally very expensive and would probably make sense only if you wanted to use the spa facilities, but the hotel does have a moderate visitor rate that might make this an appealing choice.
