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. 


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.
