Area families will have a chance to test their cybercrime investigation skills while learning about digital forensics and Internet safety, including cyberbullying prevention, at an educational program being presented by two Hilbert College students as part of a new Buffalo Museum of Science exhibit.
The recently opened “CSI: The Experience” exhibit, created in cooperation with the hit CBS television franchise, includes a “Digital Forensics and Internet Safety” program developed by Hilbert forensic science/crime scene investigation majors Kelly Bigaj and Jessica Anderhalt. Scheduled for several sessions throughout the three-month long interactive exhibit in Buffalo, this is the first time an educational program specifically on digital crime has been incorporated in the exhibit since the national tour began in 2007.
New bachelor-level accelerated degree programs designed to address the needs of busy adults seeking to advance their education and career prospects in a fast-tracked academic format are being launched this fall at Hilbert College.
Offered in two sought-after majors, Hilbert’s Accelerated Degree Programs (ADP) were developed specifically for adult learners who have already earned a minimum of 48 college credits and want to complete their undergraduate degree. Bachelor’s degrees will be available in conflict studies and dispute resolution and also in organizational development. Students enrolled in either program with maximum allowable transfer credits can complete their degree in as little as 12 months.
The Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra played for a sold out crowd of 450 people last night at Hilbert College’s William E. Swan Auditorium. The orchestra, conducted by the renowned Paul Ferington, performed their Holiday Pops show complete with traditional favorites including “Silent Night” and few other entertaining pieces such as “The Twelve Days After Christmas.” The evening’s program included two talented soloists; soprano Jennifer Stafford and Diane Dick on the hand bells.
This event marked the fifth time that the BPO has performed at Swan Auditorium, and their second Holiday Pops show at the college. We look forward to welcoming the orchestra onto our campus again next year for another great show!
