Commencement 2018

Welcome! Preparations for Commencement 2018 are underway.

At Hartwick College, Commencement is much more than the ceremony in which we award the traditional baccalaureate hood and degrees are conferred on graduating students. It is the moment our students become alumni. It is the day they step off our campus prepared to make a difference in the world.

Commencement weekend is the culmination of many years of hard work and determination on the part of each one of our students. We encourage our students to invite as many guests as they choose to help them in celebrating this momentous occasion.

We hope that the information provided within these pages will be helpful as you plan your weekend on Oyaron Hill. Please continue to check back as more information becomes available and as schedules are confirmed.

Paul Habernig, Commencement Coordinator
