First-Year Students

The Center for Student Success strives to inspire, challenge, and encourage the newest Hartwick studentsFirst-Year Students to embrace the College and Oneonta community while also evoking a sense of Hawks' pride and tradition.

We facilitate first-year students' integration into the Hartwick College community through curricular and co-curricular initiatives designed to promote and support academic, personal, and professional potential in the first year of college and beyond.

As part of this initiative, CSS implements a transition course designed to support students through their transition to Hartwick College and introduce them to resources and opportunities that help them make the most of their college experience.
