“I transferred to Hartwick at the beginning of my sophomore year because the philosophy department faculty each focused on very different areas of the subject. I liked the diversity of thought, motivations, and perspectives within the department and hoped that it would motivate me to see myself and the world from different perspectives, which it did. This was incredibly important to me at the time because I was going through a pretty deep depression and was using my time at Hartwick to figure out who I was and who I wanted to be. Hartwick helped me figure this out, and even gave me the opportunity to begin making a name for myself in academia both literally and figuratively, as I legally changed my name during my time there.”
