Student Clubs and Organizations

The Office of Campus Activities and the Student Senate work in collaboration to support the efforts of upwards of 70+ registered student clubs and organizations each year. These groups contribute powerfully to the vibrant co-curricular life of Hartwick and represent an incredibly diverse array of community interests.

A full list of active clubs and organizations, along with contact information, can be found on Hartlink.

The Office of Campus Activities advises student organizations, sets policy and distributes funds, while the Student Senate provides much of the funding allocation and political representation for these groups.
