From the Director


We're delighted you've decided to explore Hartwick's Summer College for High School Students! At Hartwick, we believe in the transformtional power of a liberal arts education melded with experiential learning. We know that the best learning is done both inside and outside of the classroom, in close interaction with faculty who are experts in their field. As a student at our Summer College, you will experience what Hartwick College offers every day.

You'll find our courses engaging and our first-class faculty inspiring. Whether you choose to learn to become a forensic anthropologist, to become a better artist, to perform real research with a leading behavioral disease biologist, to engage in a theatrical journey of self-expression, how the United Nations functions in world politics, or how to write a great children's book, you'll be immersed in learning that is challenging, fun, innovative, and interactive.

You'll live in one of our on-campus residence halls, spend time at our Pine Lake Environmental Campus, participate in extracurricular activities, build lasting friendships, develop leadership qualities and earn college credit -- all while getting a great head start on your college career.

Apply today to become a member of the 2014  Summer College class. We look forward to having you with us in Oneonta, New York from July 5-25, 2014!

Warm Regards,

Rachel Stevenson,
Director, Summer College
