Out of The Darkness Awareness Walk | PHOTO GALLERY

Hilbert students and staff walked in support of suicide prevention this past Saturday, November 2. The walk was held through the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and consisted of two laps around the school. After the walk, all were welcomed to Fran Hall to talk about the topic of suicide. This event goes hand in hand with this year’s Hilbert Reads book, What Made Maddy Run, the heartbreaking story of college athlete Madison Holleran, whose life and death by suicide reveal the struggle of young people suffering from mental illness today.

If you are struggling with depression or thoughts of suicide, you are not alone. Call (716) 834-3131 [Crisis Services 24/7 Hotline] or 1-800-273-TALK (8255) [National Suicide Prevention Lifeline] or Text: HOME to 741741 [Crisis Text Line].

Hilbert’s Criminal Justice Ranked in Top 35 in the Nation

It’s an exciting time for the Hilbert Criminal Justice department! Our program was recently ranked #17 (out of 35) for the Top Criminal Justice Bachelor’s Degrees in the nation. The list was published by College Choice and features 35 colleges that offer full undergraduate degree programs in Criminal Justice.

According to College Choice,

To determine the best Criminal Justice programs we started first with the academic reputation of each school nationwide that offers the degree. We then examined retention rates, as it reflects student satisfaction. And we then took into account the affordability of the program and the early salaries of its graduates.

After our extensive research, we found those programs that are the country’s absolute best at training leaders in law enforcement and criminology. Our figures and information come from the university and colleges’ websites, PayScale, and nationally recognized U.S. News & World Report and The National Center for Education Statistics.
