Hartwick College students on Founders' Way

Student Organizations & Clubs

With a focus on creating meaningful, lifelong experiences for the Hartwick community, the Office of Student Engagement works with student leaders to create engaging activities and build connections with the campus community.

At Hartwick, events and organizations are designed to provide all students with opportunities for leadership and engagement.

Here, students decide which clubs to join (or create), and how to make the most of their time outside the classroom.
