Even before you start, your professors will get to know you. Hartwick may be small, but the opportunities to explore, grow and succeed are enormous! Once I saw this campus and met the people, I was sold...excellent athletics and clubs too!

I liked that Hartwick was very small, and was a close-knit community. Classes were small, usually no more than 20-25 students per class. Since the class size was so small, you were able to get to know your professors very well. I liked the liberal arts aspect. Since Hartwick College is a liberal arts school, you got the chance to explore all different types of studies and classes. I wish Hartwick had better food options. Many times the food wasn't very healthy.
The dorms are extremely outdated, most of them look like tiny jail cells with all white walls and blue door.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.
