On an earlier theread, one Hartwick parent posted, "There is also a bit of an earthy influence. . . . [and] Hartwick is obviously not prepped out in the sense of some other schools my D's considered such as Colby, Bowdoin, Ursinus, Dickinson, Skidmore, ect."
But other than the earthy/crunchy influence, is Hartwick very "straight?" We are looking to add a couple of schools thatare more structured that the Hampshire, Bennington and the other hipster schools, but that still have at least a critical mass of edgy students.
Hartwick offers much of what D is looking for in terms of social fit: not too far from home, some racial diversity (D is black) and a walkable campus where she won't need a car; but I not sure there will be enough like-minded hippie (not artsy) students for D to feel comfortable.
So how would you describe the Hartwick student body?
