During the 3-Week semester at Hiram College, students focus on one class for three weeks, after taking a full course load for the first part of the semester. Here is one example, shown through photos, that students had during the Spring 2014 3-Week to stretch their brains and imaginations.

Students in Professor of Art Linda Bourassa’s “History of Photography” class networked, studied and explored hands-on, as they spent a week visiting landmarks and professionals in Rochester, N.Y., Gettysburg, Pa., and Washington, D.C., from April 29-May 3, 2014.
