The dorms are extremely outdated, most of them look like tiny jail cells with all white walls and blue door. The science building is nice and has a great nursing lab and they just built another nursing lab, yet most of the other buildings need to be updated. Some of the rooms in one of the academic halls has mold in it. Some of the professors are really nice and really want you to pass and others do not care how their students do and don't care if they fail their students. Lots of hills on campus and could use some more elevators. The dinning hall food is always the same and gross.

Hartwick is such a great school! The academics are great for almost all majors. Psychology and Criminal justice are the weakest majors. The view is absolutely phenomenal and so worth it. The on-campus food is okay. It starts out good but since its the only dining hall it gets repetitive.
The campus is beautiful and the professors are both intelligent and always ready to help a student if asked. The only down side to the college is that I have experienced a lack of in-depth communication between superiors such as Student Accounts and myself. Also, the campus is located on a hill so there are stairs everywhere, however they are easy to get use to after a couple of weeks. Overall, the professors and their lessons are truly the only great experiences to Hartwick College.
