Hartwick wasn't my top choice, but I am glad I'm here. It was many things that I wanted in a school: small, not too far from home, and had a traditional college atmosphere with brick buildings and ivy. I worried about wanting to transfer, but I feel like I belong here. But I found people like me.

Wilder is a wonderful dorm, in the perfect location, has nice size rooms, decent bathrooms, and lounges on every floor. I really got a good dorm. Hilltop and Oyaron are far away from the rest of campus.

If you do want to get off of campus, there are nightly buses that can take you downtown or to the "mall" on the other side of Oneonta to Walmart or wherever, for free.

All my professors are wonderful and very passionate about teaching.I would say Intro to Chemistry is my largest class, in the "big lecture hall" in Johnstone, with about 30-40 people.

Professors keep you on track and make sure you are not only knowledgable on the subject, but also knowledgable about where you stand as you progress through the course. The professors care. Their teaching style is very hands on and personal which is effective in learning. Finally, class sizes offer many benefits since they are small!
Just finished my first semester as a freshman and I have to say I had a pretty decent year. I did not think I would like Hartwick due to it's smallness, what lack of diversity, and it's location. I was wrong about a lot of those factors. I made a lot of great friends, went out, partied, participated in a lot of clubs, and more. The professors are cool. The campus is beautiful despite it's smallness, but that's what makes it a close knit community. Much to my surprise, I'm already ready to go back to school.
