Live Nativity | PHOTO GALLERY

On December 7, Hilbert College continued a Saint Francis tradition by hosting a live Nativity on campus. The Nativity recreated the night Jesus was born, which reminds us of the reason for the season: to take the time and be thankful for what we have those we love. The Nativity was brought to life with sheep, a donkey, and volunteers including Hilbert Students, families, and community members.

Afterwards, everyone headed to Hafner Recreation Center for a Christmas party which featured crafts, games, and pictures with Santa. The day concluded with a candelight mass in Hilbert’s St. Clare’s Chapel.

A Visit to St. Francis Park | PHOTO GALLERY

With the Christmas season upon us, students, faculty, and staff walked across the street to help the sisters decorate on Tuesday, December 5. Sister Edmunette greeted Hilbert at the door and took them to the boxes filled with ornaments, lights, and a manger scene. They quickly got to work making St. Francis Park get into the Christmas spirit while many passing sisters offered to help. Thank you to everyone who joined!

Bert to Hawks: Bert Needs Your Help!

Usually Bert is very busy, but we were able to get some pictures of him enjoying our new spaces in Fran Hall, including the Hawkade and The Center for Student Involvement and Leadership. Bert loves the new additions on campus and hopes students do too. Bert has an important message for faculty, students, and staff that he would like us to share. The Giving Tree is up in Fran and he needs your help this holiday season. Hilbert is sponsoring two families that need help purchasing gifts this Christmas. The process is simple: just take a piece of paper off the tree and buy the item on the paper. Once it is wrapped, take it to the president’s office upstairs in Fran where it will then be delivered to the family in need. Lets come together Hilbert community to help others enjoy their Christmas season!

Students were welcomed to the Passport event “What? So What? Now What? Movie Series”. The movie chosen this round was On the Basis of Sex which is the story of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and how she faced adversity and numerous obstacles as she fought for equal rights. After grabbing some snacks and getting comfy in their seats, students watched the movie and then had a chance to reflect on the movie’s topics with a post-movie group discussion.
