Life on the Hill
Celebrate Hartwick Traditions
From Welcome Weekend to Hawks' Night Fever, there are events and traditions each, and every Hawk is invited to join in to celebrate. Whether you're a first-year student or entering your fourth year, you'll experience Hartwick's vibrant campus community and feel a strong sense of pride being a Hawk.
Find where you fit
Your FlightPath is more than just your academic journey; it’s your entire experience. It’s our way of making sure that every opportunity available is meaningful and relevant to you. Join one of more than 60 clubs and organizations, play a sport, start a research project, learn through an on-campus internship, become a campus leader -- you name it. . As a Hawk, you’ll discover that making friends comes naturally, and it’s easy to feel at home.
Where Hawks Gather
Between and after classes, you'll find other Hawks in places like Dewar Union, The Commons, and Stack's Lounge or Laura's lounge for a quick bite, trivia, or even stand-up comedy and poetry readings.
You are welcome here!
