What Our Students Say....

"In my opinion, one of the most unique and beneficial features of Hartwick's biology program is the fact that the students and professors get to know each other on a personal basis. I know I can go to anyone for help at any time, and they will be there for me."—Kristen Schlansker '00

"The opportunity for students to conduct research at Hartwick is incredible. Students are given a great deal of attention and guidance in research by the department, but at the same time, much respect and freedom. It's a wonderful atmosphere where your professors are not only your teachers, but also your friends and colleagues."—Geffrey Stopper '00

"What I value most about being a Hartwick biology major is the great opportunities to interact one-on-one with professors day to day. The professors are very personable and easy going, which makes it easy to talk to them outside of class and interact with them on the same level. I have not found a time when one of them has been too busy to make time for a student." —Sarah Bicker '02

"The professors in the biology department are so friendly and outgoing, always willing to help. Whether you have classes with them or not, they want to help you."—Melissa Sheffield '03

"Even though Hartwick is a small school, the biology department professors have extensive knowledge in their fields and are ALWAYS willing to lend a hand and share that knowledge with their students. Even professors you do not know are very approachable and willing to help."—Lorie Dejean '01
