Hilbert College Reviews
Best college located in upstate New York! I am proud to be a graduate of the Forensic Science/Crime Scene Investigation Program at Hilbert. The program gave me an opportunity to study abroad at Bond University in Australia for a semester, created leadership opportunities, allowed me to be a student-athlete, prepared me for graduate school and most importantly opened doors for my future. The faculty at Hilbert is top notch with a world of hands-on experience in the forensic science work force. I discovered that if you put in the effort and work into the classroom, the faculty will bend over backwards to help you be successful. Hilbert College is the college for anyone looking to major in forensic science or criminal justice.
I love this school! All the professors care about the success of the students, class sizes are small, there are plenty of sports and clubs to involve yourself in. RAs at the college also have programs which can be just as fun as clubs. We have other cool events, too. The school is accepting of people of all backgrounds.
Hilbert college makes it easy for every student who wants to make Hilbert college her/his dream college. The most amazing thing about Hilbert college is the diversity of different students from across the world, it makes learning easy since students get to share there experience from there respective counties and teachers are more helpful.
