New Science Lab

A state-of-the-art, modern science lab now open!

Hilbert received $150,000 from the John R. Oishei Foundation; $100,000 from the Margaret L. Wendt Foundation; $50,000 from the Russo Family Charitable Foundation; $50,000 from the Vincent and Harriet Palisano Foundation; $50,000 from the M&T Foundation; and $25,000 from the Garman Family Foundation administered by the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo.

This support funded the conversion of typical classrooms into a state-of-the-art science laboratory, with spacious benches for lab work, chemical hoods with efficient ventilation systems, cabinetry, glassware, computer software, and the proper instrumentation needed to conduct scientific research projects. 

PRE-PROFESSIONAL PROGRAMS

It is important to understand that pre-professional programs are support programs and not an academic major. If you are interested in careers in medicine, dental, pharmacy, veterinary, or law, you can choose from a variety of majors to fulfill your academic goals and pre-professional requirements. Through strong curriculum, academic and pre-professional advisement, and valuable hands-on experiences, the pre-professional programs will help you gain admission to your chosen graduate school.
