Hilbert to Hogwarts
Story and photos by Mary Kate Wirfel
On February 21 and February 22, Hilbert College hosted its second annual Hilbert to Hogwarts school event.
Inspired by the bestselling book series by J. K. Rowling, Hilbert transformed the West Herr Atrium and the Bogel front hall foyer into a Hogwarts experience.
The Bogel front hall foyer was transformed into an Owlry, where students were able to hang out with decorative owls.
In the West Herr Atrium, students were able to take a Harry Potter-themed quiz to be selected into one of the Hogwarts houses: Ravenclaw, Slytherin, Gryffindor, or Hufflepuff.
Students were also able to make quill pens, neckties to go with their house theme and potions with glitter, glue, and water.
There was also Butterbeer, potion drinks, and snitch-themed cake pops to snack on.
In McGrath Library, attendees were able to create “monster” books, and in Bogel 101, the first two Harry Potter movies were shown for students to watch in between classes.
Overall, it was a magical two days at Hilbert College.
Four golden snitches are hidden around campus. If you find one, bring it to Student Government President Cory Boice at the Student Activities Office in Campus Center, Lower Level, for a prize.
