Other Activities

Alumni in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia assisted UB with fall recruitment efforts in these countries. Jionardi Hindrawan, assistant vice president for international education and UB's overseas recruiting coordinator, received extensive support from alumni volunteers throughout his recruitment tour of the Far East. According to Hindrawan, most prospective applicants from abroad do not have the opportunity to visit the campus. "The representations of our alumni abroad are thus extremely effective in interpreting the university from overseas," he said.

 

In search of missing alumni

International Alumni Relations continues to search for alumni who reside abroad. The university currently estimates that up to 10,000 UB graduates live outside the United States; the international program wishes to establish links with them. Alumni who know the whereabouts of friends and classmates residing abroad‹who may be lost to UB‹are urged to have them contact us by mail, phone, fax or on the Internet.

 

Call for alumni volunteers

International alumni interested in serving as volunteer alumni leaders or contacts are asked to communicate with Joseph Williams at the Office of Alumni Relations or by E-mail: jfw@acsu.buffalo.edu

 

 

 

Famed Chautauqua Institution to host Alumni College

A Summer Alumni College, June 29-July 5, 1997, at the venerable Chautauqua Institution in Chautauqua, N.Y., is being planned by the Alumni Association.

UB alumni and their friends will spend the week in the historic Athenaeum Hotel on the Chautauqua grounds. In addition to the regular Chautauqua educational program for that week-"The Politics of Environment"-the alumni collegians will enjoy their own, related curriculum.

The UB program will focus on "the built environment" and will feature Bruno Freschi, dean of the university's School of Architecture and Planning, as faculty leader. Afternoons will be free for reading, walking and other recreational activities, including golf, tennis, shuffleboard and boating. The week ends with the traditional Fourth of July celebration along the shores of Lake Chautauqua.

Program fees, approximately $1,200 per person, will include all educational programs, lodging (double occupancy, with single supplement available), meals, supplemental course materials and a keepsake "Alumni College" diploma. Optional recreational activities are extra. Transportation from Buffalo International Airport is available.
