Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

The classes are small and the teachers are very helpful. On average we have 20 students in the room and you really get to know the professor and the peers in your class.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure before you go somewhere that it feels right; the people, the place, everything. If you do well in a sport play it it helps make new friends and adjust when you first get there as a freshman. Get invlovled in clubs or other campus activities. Don't go somewhere because of a name go because you gelt good there. College is a time to grow and experience new things. Take the most out of those four years because they should be the best times of your life so far.

What's unique about your campus?

The people that are there. The school is very small and it is like our own small community; everywhere you go you know someone.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

shop around, think about what you really want it a school. Don't just take what college offers you the most money. Think about what you really need for your self ie how far away from home do you really want to be. Have fun with the process while its a lot to take it, the whole experience can be a lot of fun.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

My advice would be in order to find the right college you need to have a decent idea of who you are as a person. If you prefer small class rooms I would suggest looking into a private college, if the student likes to be around people and is very socialable I would suggest a larger state college. To make most of the college experience people need to live every day without regrets, if you see something that interests you the best piece of advice to give someone is to just go for it because you may not get a second chance.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about my school is that it was built on a hill and can be pretty tiring going to class if someone isn't in shape.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The best advice I could give to students and parents is to keep the options open and to always remember that it is better to overachieve and then have a lot of choices rather than underachieve and have little choices. For that reason, it is important to consider all schools that the student is accepted by and not only consider financial aid, but also visit the school and get the feel for the campus.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who wants to go to a large schools where professors wont know your name.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Hartwick college, is a small private college, that is full of opportunities. No matter what area of study one follows, they will be succesful! Dont forget, besides becomine highly educated, you'll meet some of the best friend ever!

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I were to give advice to parents and students about how to make correct college decisions and to make the best of one?s college experience, I would say one must lay it all out on the line. In order to make the best of the social life at college one must be able to let themselves go out and have a good time and be willing to meet other people. One must be friendly and personable at college, and if so, he/she is guaranteed to find lifelong friends. In addition, at college in order to make the best out of the education provided at college, one must be willing to put forth one hundred percent of their efforts on school work. When students work extremely hard with their school work, they are always opening themselves up to a prosperous and successful future. No matter what college one attends he/she is bound to find some success, but by laying it all on the line and putting forth effort, anyone can make the best out of their college experience.

What's unique about your campus?

It is small. Professors are able to work with students one on one to insure educational fulfillment.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would say that parents should listen to their kid's first opinion of the school. My mother didn't and it was very frustrating trying to get her to understand why I loved Hartwick. It's not really about finding the "right" college, but finding the one that best fits the personality of the person going there and what that person wants. I knew what I wanted in a college, and all my choices were very similar, but picking the one that was constantly on my mind was the ultimate decision. I never had negative feedback, and never was illreceived on campus. It just made it all the more better knowing what I was looking for. Also, don't sit back and let things pass you. Get out there and try things, it'll make the experience 100 times better if you make the most of the resources that surround you. Take advantage of trips and friends and the social events, as well as academics. It all adds up to an amazing time.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I would have known to be in shape. The hills are a killer at first, but you gradually get used to them and they give you killer leg muscles. It's a fun campus to manuever around, particularly when you're late to class and trying to figure out the quickest way there with the least amount of stairs.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Any person that is driven to succeed and not afraid to get out there and assert themselvs. The students who are not academically happy here at the ones looking for a free ride and who think that just sleeping through class and drinking on the weekends will get them by. If you enjoy beautiful mountains and all four seasons, Hartwick is the right place. The scenery is beautiful and the people are fantastic.

Hartwick is a small, friendly, Liberal Arts College that focuses on making sure its students are well-rounded when they leave.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I think the most important part of the college selection process is spending some time at the school. It is important to walk around on the campus, ad make sure that you are able to picture yourself on the campus, walking around, going to classes, and spending months at a time there. College will become a home for most students, so it is important to make sure that you will be able to live there. I recommend participating in an Overnight progrm if possible, to help get a feeling for what life is like on the campus when classes aren't going on. It is most important that the school that you select is the right one for you, if you want to get the most out of your educational experience.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I had known that running cross country was going to take up so much time, but I decided I would try it Freshman year, just to get a feel for college athletics.
