International Student Services

International students in their own words:

Hartwick’s community is so welcoming and friendly. I love how people on campus make an effort to relate with each other. The faculty and staff are always willing to help out.

It's always hard to leave your hometown and go to a new country, but I've found a home away from home at Hartwick College.

International Student of the month:

Ankita Bal '22

Ankita is an international student from Kolkata, India. She started her undergraduate journey at Hartwick College in the Fall of 2018 as a three-year biology major but now, she is graduating with a BS in biochemistry and a minor in Spanish with Honors. Ankita will be working as a research technician at the Jaitovich Lab under Albany Medical College starting in June. She plans on pursuing higher education in a similar field. Ankita’s advice for incoming international students is to ‘branch out’.
