“Hartwick is a great school, the fact that it is small is important to me. You get to know many people on a personal level and connect with them in a way that would be impossible in a big school. The professors are my inspiration and I look up to them trying to learn as much as I can from them. Hartwick gave me mentors that I will be thankful for the rest of my life.
The first day I had a biology lecture from Dr. Peter Fauth and was amazed at how well he teaches. As time progressed, I gotten to know him better and he has helped me push harder when I needed it most.”
