Students Visit Federal Courthouse

HilbertFederalCourtHilbert students had the opportunity to visit and tour the federal courthouse in downtown Buffalo on Friday, April 10, thanks to Wendy Edson, Chair of the Professional Studies Division, and Katie Martoche, Director of Career Development and Service Learning.

The group was surprised upon arriving and meeting with Gretchen Wylegala, Hilbert’s Board Chair and an Attorney for the Federal Government, who had arranged with Judge Jeremiah McCarthy, a Hilbert Board member, to meet the group along with four Hilbert grads who work in the court system.  The group also met with court librarian Jay Deveau, who had been an adjunct at Hilbert for many years.  It was a tremendous opportunity for students to hear from graduates about how their Hilbert education, internships, and connections helped them professionally.
