Looking for something invigorating to do this Saturday, Dec. 1st at 2:00pm?

Join the Hilbert College Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (S.A.A.C.) and take part in the Polar Plunge at Woodlawn Beach State Park. You will be Freezin’ for a Reason as all your sponsorship funds will be donated directly to the New York State Special Olympics.

Sign-up to take the plunge with other student-athletes and coaches;  A $10 donation allows you to personally plunge in the lake. Follow this link (register now)

But, if you can’t work up the courage to take a dip yourself, then maybe consider sponsoring a fellow plunger.  Here is a list of Hilbert College excited and willing plungers working under the direction of Curt Campbell and Kelly Starchok

Lastly, all proceeds from food and drink purchases made in the Hafner Recreation Center’s concession stand during the men’s and women’s basketball games this winter will be donated to the Special Olympics.




Hilbert College, located in suburban Hamburg, N.Y., south of Buffalo, is a private four-year college founded in 1957 in the Catholic Franciscan tradition. With nearly 1,100 students, Hilbert is a dynamic Western New York college that offers career-focused majors, including one of the top criminal justice programs in the region, and more than 50 minors and concentrations. The college’s engaging, student-centered campus community offers numerous leadership, internship, and service learning opportunities from which students launch successful careers while making positive changes in their communities. The Hilbert Blueprint promotes a well-rounded student experience over four years – starting with the Foundations Seminar in the freshman year, followed by Sophomore Service, Junior Symposium, and culminating with the Senior Capstone. Hilbert has expanded its academic offerings with the college’s first graduate programs and new Accelerated Degree Programs geared to adult learners.
