On September 20th a group of Hilbert students went apple picking as part of a Student Life activity. Students were able to pick all different tastes of apples from Cortland and Liberty to McIntosh. The apples that were picked were donated to Cornerstone Manor which benefits women and mothers in need in the Buffalo area. Students were also able to pick their own apples to bring home. After trying a few during picking you didn’t have a chance to go empty handed!
DJ Marbles brought the party to Hilbert College for the Blue, Black, and White Dance. Every year Residence Life hosts the dance, and this year they did not disappoint! Students had the chance to dress in what made them comfortable and want to dance. Once Cha-Cha Slide hit the speakers, there was not a spot left on the dance floor. At the end of the dance there wasn’t a single face that didn’t have a smile!
The Black-Jew Dialogues is a provocative two-actor comedy which explores the absurdity of prejudice and racism. This show teaches its audience members how to engage in cross-generational and cross-cultural dialogue by combining fast-paced sketches, improvisations, puppets, a game show, and a post-show discussion.
On November 17, the Hilbert Center for Career and Community Engagement hosted a Donate Life Summit on the Hilbert campus. The event welcomed over 70 high school students from seven local high schools to learn about the importance of organ donation in our communities.
This event was held in partnership with Unyts, Western New York’s only organ, eye, tissue, and community blood center. Unyts established the Donate Life Club in 2004 to assist groups of students at area high schools in the planning, development, and implementation of a campaign to increase awareness about organ, tissue, and blood donation among their peers.
By participating in workshops during the event, the 70+ high school students who attended Hilbert’s Donate Life Club Summit in November were able to receive the knowledge necessary to help spread accurate information about the importance of organ, eye, tissue, and blood donation to their school and home communities. The ultimate goal of Unyts and the Donate Life Club is to establish donation as a cultural norm.
Hilbert is proud to be hosting another Donate Life Club Summit on Tuesday, December 18th. For more information, please contact Rachel Wozniak at email@example.com or by phone at (716) 926-8929.
Hawk Radio is throwing a party – and everyone’s invited! Join the Hawk Radio crew and special alumni guests for the Hawk Radio Legacy Party in the lower level of the Campus Center on Thursday, November 29th from 7:00-10:00 PM.
The party will feature a special LIVE broadcast with former on-air personalities, free food, a photo booth for all your Instagram-worthy moments, and games. Oh, and did we mention free food?
While you’re feeling the music at the party, you can also feel good about attending the event by donating much needed items to Compass House, a local organization near and dear to Hilbert’s heart. Hawk Radio will be collecting donations of personal items throughout the event to benefit this Western New York based not-for-profit, which provides young men and women shelter, counseling, and other services. While any donation is appreciated, a complete wish list of items can be found on the Compass House Website.
If you can’t make it to the celebration in person, you can prevent FOMO by listening in to the special live broadcast on Hawk Radio from any web browser (on any computer or mobile device) at http://hawkradio.hilbert.edu.
