When Hartwick College initiated its Scholastic Honor Day on April 24, 1940, it was celebrated as a community-wide event in which faculty, staff, students and parents recognized the academic accomplishments of the student body.
Now, 77 years later, the tradition continues.
The event is now called Honors Convocation, but the intent is the same – it is Hartwick’s special ceremony for academic achievement; a celebration of excellence in scholarship.
Hartwick College President Margaret L. Drugovich and members of the Hartwick College community convene to honor and congratulate the recipients of more than 175 awards granted by academic departments and programs, as well as by several staff departments.
The 2016-2017 Honors Convocation ceremony took place on Wednesday, May 3, 2017, at 7 p.m. in Lambros Arena, Binder Physical Education Center.
