Awakening at Pine Lake

In Awakening, you will have the chance to establish lasting connections with the natural landscape.

Awakeners are immersed in the peacefulness of Hartwick's beautiful Pine Lake Environmental Campus, which includes a lake with swimming beach and sauna, a spacious lodge, wide lawns, gardens, and apple trees. Awakeners are housed in cabins scattered through the woods near the lake. In addition, immediately adjacent to the Pine Lake Environmental Campus is Robert V. Riddell State Park - at over 2,000 acres, the largest state park in the Central Region of New York State.

Hartwick's Pine Lake Environmental Campus is the perfect place for relaxing and learning about the interaction of nature with humans; its quiet beauties are an attraction in all seasons. Awakening students often learn to love this land, returning throughout college for that special "Pine Lake feeling."
