Accepted Students Once Again Celebrated In Person at Hartwick
On Saturday, April 9, Hartwick College will welcome accepted students and their families to campus for its annual Accepted Student Day (ASD), a celebration of the incoming class and its members’ accomplishments. The event starts at 9 a.m., and online registration is now open.
ASD also provides students and their families with an opportunity to take a deeper dive into FlightPath, the College’s future-focused approach to education that puts students at the center of creating and pursuing their own educational journey.
In a new addition this year, families of accepted students had a chance to participate in a virtual Q&A with Hartwick President Margaret L. Drugovich P’12 even before coming to campus. The “Family Hawk Talk” served as a unique opportunity for families and students to learn about Hartwick ask questions directly with the President.
“Accepted Student Day is one of our favorite parts of the year, because we get to formally say ‘Welcome to Hartwick!’ for the first time,” said Senior Vice President for Enrollment and Student Success Karen P. McGrath. “We’ve put together a program that’s exciting, fun, and informative. It’s going to be a great day giving our newest Hawks a glimpse into what they can expect on Oyaron Hill.”
The day begins in Lambros Arena and Hartwick’s mascot, Swoop, greeting and taking photos with guests. “Hartwick On Display” will provide an opportunity for guests to meet with representatives from offices and departments across the College spectrum. Tours will take groups across campus and give attendees a look at the College’s facilities, and specific aspects of Hartwick academic and residential life. The “Taste of Wick Club Fair” will introduce students to clubs and social activities they can enjoy when they arrive in the fall.
ASD wouldn’t be complete without chances to win fun, valuable prizes. This year’s bounty includes a $500 tuition credit for those who enroll; a $1,000 credit at the Barnes & Noble bookstore; a chance to pick your own residence hall room; a dedicated parking space; a year-long rental of a mini refrigerator; swag like Hartwick hoodies; and more.
“Although Accepted Student Day is the College’s formal ‘welcome’ to newly accepted students, it isn’t too late to apply for admission,” said McGrath.
