Professors gossiped a lotAverageNursing
Professors gossiped a lot and played favorites. They would lie a lot! They do not want to help, and would lie to cover up a lot of things that were wrong with the program. Save your money and go elsewhere.

Hartwick is a school that comes across asQuite BrightPolitical Science
Hartwick is a school that comes across as a great place. In reality this school is a complete mess. The faculty won't accept you if you aren't liberal enough and the majority of the students think they are better than they are. Some professors are good but others have their few favorite students that you will never become a part of.

The majority of students are athletes and the athletic programs here are terrible. The athletic director is an embarrassment to the school as are many of the coaches. This school is corrupt and although they just saved 1.3 million dollars eliminating division 1 sports and other positions we will never see the money as students.

It's so disorganized at this place.BrightNursing
It's so disorganized at this place. The president cut a bunch of positions and now its hard to get information about anything academic. The professors in my department don't seem to care about anything outside of the nursing major and can't really answer any questions or know who to call with answers. It wasn't like this when I started here which is why I'm posting on this site. I think alot of my peers think this is the greatest place on the planet, but I don't, I've watched it change over the years and I no longer like it here. I don't feel like my opinion is valued or matters. The facilities are in rough shape, even the 'new' spaces are showing wear and tear. Faculty in general have become incredibly negative toward the administration and what staff remain seem overworked and unable to help at the same level they used to. I'm getting a good education, but I don't feel good about it. Something is wrong with the culture here and the student senate now believes students are lied to during the admissions process - so beware - the community on campus is not the one you get when you come here. This place is divided and sad, so so sad. If you come, you're throwing yourself into something sad.
