Do More. Be More. Hartwick.

Let's face it, four years of textbooks and lecture halls won't cut it in the real world. You need experience. In the real world. You'll get it at Hartwick.

What you learn in the classroom is important. But getting your hands dirty doing real work and real research will make your understanding deeper, richer, and so much more meaningful.

It's good to read about recombinant DNA engineering. It's better to get into the laboratory and do it. It's good to read about the practice of nursing in developing countries. It's better to go to Jamaica with Professor of Nursing Jeanne-Marie Havener and experience it first-hand. You can learn a lot about the evolution of galaxies from a book. You can learn a lot more seeing it with your own eyes with Associate Professor of Physics Parker Troischt at Arecibo in Puerto Rico, the largest radio telescope in the world.

Employers care about experience. So do graduate, medical and law schools. And so do we.

We help our students do more. We show them how to be more. We give them valuable experience and point the way to success. It's about study abroad. It's about undergraduate research. It's about career-related internships.

We think getting experience is so important, we even award special scholarships for everything you've accomplished in high school or college outside the classroom.

If you're the kind of student who has the courage to get out of your comfort zone, to succeed in and out of the classroom, to do more and be more, consider joining the 1,500 talented students who call Hartwick home.

A great first step is to visit during one of our Open House programs. We look forward to seeing you on campus.Have a question? Give us a call at 888-HARTWICK (888-427-8942) or email us at
