There is no way I can warn peopleQuite BrightComputer Science
There is no way I can warn people not to go to this degree mill enough. The administration is first rate, when it comes to manipulative, vinidictive, and down right psychotic behavior I have never met any one better. The so called "campus safety" (not capitalized because you only capitalize a proper noun, and campus safety is not a proper anything) went out of their way on several occasions that I know of to harass, bother and in some cases actually force several students into college owned vehicles and drive to a destination the student was not informed of before hand. In several instances the students were forced by campus safety to miss classes, which the students are paying for, and to even miss meals. All because the head of campus safety wanted to "talk". Students were subjected, without prior warning or consent, to a mental review by a psychologist working for the college. No I am not speaking of instances that occurred only once to one student. Several students have reported that the same psychologist would interogate the same students over and over again, on different occasions. Never were the students asked for permission and none of the students who reported these crimes ever reported that they were informed before hand of the interogation. campus safety also went out of their way to threaten several students on more than one occasion. This is the kind of place that is better suited to being called a degree mill. This is the kind of college that one hopes will not around in 1 year, let alone 10. To anyone strongly considering this school, do not attend here. The area is poor, the college is of quality that would make a federal prision warden cringe, the people are down right psychotic, but the food is good. Take your money and find a better in state school, it will cost less and your degree will be worth far more.

The school is what you make it. Party all the time and you'll fail out. Work hard, seek internships, and you'll be aight.

Hartwick College was a huge let down forBrightSociology
Hartwick College was a huge let down for me. It was not my first choice school but I was still optimistic. After my first year there I realized that it is the complete opposite of what you would expect from a college experience. Classes were not challenging and for me personally did not offer any sort of real life or marketable job skills. Also like many others have mentioned it is very cliquey and students are pretty apathic to their school work and career ambitions. Like so many others, I decided to transfer. Going to Hartwick was a huge mistake and I would recommend thinking twice before attending.
