Welcome Weekend for Transfer Students

Welcome Weekend Orientation, required of transfer students, is specially designed to meet your particular needs.

Mark your calendar now for Wednesday, August 22, 2018! 

It’s important that all our new transfer students feel welcomed and supported throughout their transition to their new college. Welcome Weekend Orientation will provide you with the experience necessary to ensure a smooth transition and successful first semester at Hartwick. 

Welcome Weekend Orientation runs from Wednesday, August 22-Sunday, August 26, with classes beginning on Monday, August 27. There will be required programming for new transfer students each day of Welcome Weekend, so please plan in advance. 

Welcome Weekend includes transfer student events which include federally mandated programming, our traditional Opening Convocation ceremony, academic open houses, academic advising and course adjustment sessions, and your first ’Wick 101 coaching meeting.

As a transfer student, you’ll be treated to a Transfer Luncheon, during which you’ll hear from returning transfer students, meet other new transfers, and begin building a sense of community in your new home. Save the date for this transfer tradition!  Friday, August 24; 11:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in Dewar Union, Chesebro Room.
