Hartwick will celebrate the achievements of outstanding students during the College's inaugural Honors Week celebration, May 3-5.
2023 Honors Convocation Ceremony - May 3
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, 83 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.
The 2023 Honors Convocation Ceremony was held at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 3 in Slade Theatre, Yager Hall.
Hartwick College President Darren Reisberg and members of the Hartwick College community convened to honor and congratulate the recipients of awards highlighting achievement within areas of study.
