The Hartwick community looks forward to welcoming all new first-year and transfer students and families during Welcome Weekend Orientation!

Welcome Weekend Orientation 2019 runs Wednesday, August 21 to Sunday, August 25.

A full program of required informational and social events is offered throughout the five days to welcome new students and support their transition to their new community. A family program will run on Wednesday and Thursday.

Highlights of Welcome Weekend include the Matriculation Ceremony with President Drugovich, Opening Convocation, Academic Department Open Houses, Founders’ Way First Walk, individual academic advisement meetings, evening social events, and interactive sessions designed to introduce you to the expectations, resources, and opportunities of college.
