About Hobart and William Smith Colleges

Hobart and William Smith Colleges (HWS) are four-year, private liberal arts colleges located in Geneva, New York. Hobart College is a men’s college founded in 1822 and William Smith College is a women’s college founded in 1908. The colleges share a campus, administration and faculty; however, each college has its own dean and operates its own student government and athletic department. One tradition at the college is Fall Nationals, a soap box race down Winn-Seeley Hill. The colleges compete in NCAA Division III athletics and have two mascots, Hobart’s Bart the Statesman and William Smith’s Heron. Currently, HWS has 2,234 undergraduates.

Campus information

Hobart and William Smith Colleges' campus is situated on 170 acres (0.69 km2) in Geneva, New York, along the shore of Seneca Lake, the largest of the Finger Lakes. The campus is notable for the style of Jacobean architecture represented by many of its buildings, notably Coxe Hall, which houses the President's Office and other administrative departments. In contrast, the earliest buildings and the chapel are Gothic in style.

The shuttle will be operating a fixed route with fixed stops starting with the fall 2008 semester. Campus Safety plans to operate as many as two vans and the Fitzgerald Brothers will operate a trolley on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. The availability of two vehicles depends on the availability of drivers and extreme weather conditions.
