Hilbert’s New Evening Accelerated Degree Programs Geared to Adult Learners

HAMBURG, N.Y. – 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.

Students Get Creative to Promote Annunciation’s Open House

Students at Annunciation School in Elma are putting their own mark on the school’s annual open house — literally! The students were invited to use their artistic talents to create unique lawn signs for the open house that will be appearing in neighborhoods surrounding the school in the coming days. The open house event will take place at the school, located at 7580 Clinton St., from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday, February 2.

The students were given freedom to include a special message on their signs, in addition to pertinent information about the event. Signs contain messages such as “Come see how we soar,” “You are always welcome,” “Touching hearts, teaching minds, transforming lives” and “I love Annunciation!” Robin Bartnik, the school’s art teacher, oversaw the project.
