    Of course people go to parties and bars. However, HCAB (campus activities board) does a good job of having plays, comedians, and movies available to students who chose not to partake in the part scene. There are always sporting events going on which are always fun to attend and support the school.

    There are plenty of things to do such as go to Pine Lake, walk around in town, go on one of the trips they offer, attend a sports game, or go to an on-campus activity.

    The town has a lot to offer. They have a lot of restaurants, thrift stores, hookah bar and a lounge. They also have something called the OPT (oneonta public transport) and it's free for Hartwick students.

    The city of Oneonta is very small. The transit system only runs Monday through Saturday and starts running at 6:00. This makes it hard if you do not own a car to get to town. There are various activities on campus that are fun to do. On top of that, in the student lounge, there is an air hockey table and pool table free for any of the students to use. Since the college is so small, I've never run into a problem with the student lounge being to crowded. There are many places on campus in which a group of students can go to relax by themselves.

    The first week at campus (welcome weekend for freshamn and transfers) Hartwick puts togother a series of events to help students and families ease into the moving and college process. Oneonta is a very small town, but has a lot of history. There are alot of bars for adult students. The greek life and sports teams parties are very fun. If you prefer to stay on campus you can participate in the many clubs Hartwick has to offer.

    Movies, concerts, sports events, street fairs, programs, and many more are all offered at Hartwick with no or minimal charge to current students. Outside campus, the cinemas are only a 5-10 minute drive, and the college provides free busing to and from town. Eateries and creamies are abundant, as well as the common fast foods and dunkin doughnuts/starbucks.

    There are always campus activities, but if none of the multitudes of things on campus please you SUCO, the SUNY school next door to Hartwick, has events and concerts, and there are also things to do downtown like bowling, skating, restaurants, parks shopping, or movie theaters. Or you can hang out with friends, watch a movie, go to a theatre show, watch a music concert, or get some extra sleep. There is always something to do.
