Hartwick College continues its semester kick-off traditions while maintaining safe distancing during the COVID-19 outbreak.The Opening Convocation will take place today at 7:00 p.m. but as a virtual event in place of the procession of new students, faculty, staff, and administrators in full academic regalia. This year’s Founders’ Way First Walk will not be held in person but first-year students are encouraged to sign a banner which will instead be used at events during their senior year.
