2024 Honors Week Events

Honors Convocation Ceremony – May 1

On April 24, 1940, Hartwick College’s “Scholastic Honor Day” began as a community-wide event in which faculty, staff, students and parents convened to announce the academic accomplishments of the student body.

Now, 84 years later, the tradition continues. Today, while the event is named “Honors Convocation,” the intent of the ceremony remains. The event serves to recognize exceptional academic achievement, celebrating excellence in scholarship.
