Upcoming UB Alumni Association Awards Programs
Save these dates! Two important UB Alumni Association traditions continue, with the Athletic Hall of Fame and the Celebration of Excellence award ceremonies. Both events are open to UB alumni and the public, and we hope you will join us!
Athletic Hall of Fame
Each year, the UB Alumni Association honors a select group of both UB athletes and athletics professional staff through election to the UB Athletic Hall of Fame. This year's induction ceremony will take place Friday, February 6, 2004, at the Center for Tomorrow. The evening highlights the importance of athletes and athletics to the students, faculty and alumni of UB.
