Public Health and Spanish majors, Bullville, New York
“Through the Emerson scholarship I was blessed with the opportunity of going to Tena, Ecuador and living with a host family for five weeks. This experience opened my eyes to a new world and sharpened my Spanish-speaking skills. It also gave me an immersive public health opportunity which I ultimately link to me receiving the John Christopher Hartwick Scholarship.”
Biology major. Saugerties, New York
“I chose Hartwick because it has a strong Biology department. Once I took Dr. Allen’s Microbiology course, I was completely inspired and have been hooked on the topic since. My most treasured Hartwick memory is the J Term course in Madagascar. It was my first time on a plane. It was such a thrilling adventure and I was grateful to experience a different culture that is filled with wonderful people and endemic creatures.”
