The GS 101 Service Project was designed and orchestrated by the Peer Leaders of each of the Fall 2016 GS 101 Foundation Seminar classes. Under their outstanding leadership, first year women and men experienced first hand what it means to “give back” to those who protect us by showing their support for members of our military serving overseas. Freshmen students assembled donation packs that included candy, personal hygiene items, and notes of thanks to be sent to American troops serving in the military.
The Digital Media and Communication Department and the Career Center hosted the 2016 Comm Career Expo this week. The expo featured a keynote address by Hilbert alum Tom Wills ’12. Wills spoke about his experience in the film and TV industry. He regularly works on Saturday Night Live taped segments and also offered a Steadicam workshop.
The event was open to all high school, community college, and college students. It was a great opportunity for students to talk with businesses in the communication field about internship possibilities and how to break into the fields of film, TV, radio, marketing, public relations, journalism, and more.
The Hilbert College Digital Media and Communications department officially introduced the new student-run news service, The Scribe, and the soon-to-be launched ScribeTV. Fr. Jud, Hilbert College Chaplain, blessed the student staff of the new media, along with advisors Professors Chris Gallant and Dan Higgins.
