Student Involvement

Experience Hartwick, get involved.

You’ll never find yourself watching paint dry at Hartwick (unless you’re in ARTistocracy Society). And the best way to keep your mind nimble is to give it fresh challenges and set aside time to relieve stress and have fun. If you’re an accounting major, check out some of our more artistic outlets (like the aforementioned art club). And if your major means you spend a lot of time cultivating your right brain, give your left a challenge in Chemistry Club.

Hartlink on-line is where our student clubs and organizations manage their membership, finances, events and service activities.

Our students have a knack for developing rich communities and traditions — we admire them for that.
