Warm Weather Wednesdays (WWW) went retro this summer as students, staff, friends and families learned how to make groovy tie-dye T-shirts. Sponsored by UBThisSummer, WWW celebrates the season with a weekly series of free outdoor events and activities, which this year included UB Chalkfest, a disc golf workshop, kite flying and a treasure hunt, in addition to tie-dyeing. For that event, people gathered in the Student Union field to twist, tie, dip and dye plain white T-s, turning them into gorgeous, color-saturated fashion statements. UB provided all the supplies—as well as, most importantly, ice cream.
