First Week Activities | PHOTO GALLERY

The Fall semester of 2019 was in full swing during Welcome Week! Hilbert welcomed students to try the rock wall or check out the new game room and Student Union in the freshly updated Franciscan Hall. The involvement fair gave students the chance to see what clubs they could join on campus or meet local businesses for job opportunities. Comedian Jeffrey Jay came to Swan Auditorium for anyone who needed a laugh at the end of the day. To end the week, an outdoor movie event was held, allowing students to relax and look forward to the semester to come!

Welcome Hawks!

We recently welcomed our incoming class of Hilbert students at New Student Orientation for the Fall of 2019. New this year, orientation spanned two days of activities – giving students a glimpse of the Hilbert experience with an overnight stay in our residence halls.

The 29th annual scholarship golf tournament was a success! The money raised will continue to benefit scholarships for deserving students, which helps to keep Hilbert College one of the most affordable four-year, private colleges in New York State. You can learn more about the tournament here:

Special thanks to our sponsors and supporters for another successful event to benefit future Hawks!


On Monday May 13th 2019, a ribbon cutting ceremony took place on campus announcing the opening of SCORE’s new south towns office that will be located on Hilbert’s campus in the McGrath Library! SCORE is a small business counseling organization that offers free mentoring and business advice from planning, starting up, management and growth.

Ahh… such majestic creatures. Alpaca sandwich and spend some time with these furry friends.

Who Doesn’t Llove Llamas??

To help relieve stress during the end of the semester, Hilbert College brought in some more four legged stress relievers…this time in the form of Llamas! Students, faculty, and staff had fun petting both of the llamas and many selfies were taken!

Whats better than passing a test? Whats better than sleeping in? And most certainly, what’s better than a five-page essay?

Well dogs of course! To help reduce some end-of-the semester stress, Hilbert “released the hounds” to lighten up the day. Students were able to give these good dogs all the cuddles they could handle. A big thank you goes out to Paws for Love, as well as the volunteers, faculty, staff, and students that helped make this event a success!
