Namesake


Astronaut Gregory Jarvis (1944-1986), a graduate of UB's electrical engineering program, lost his life with six others on the space shuttle Challenger. Only one year earlier Jarvis had given an inspirational commencement address at UB's 1985 graduation ceremony. After his death, students nailed a sign reading "Jarvis Hall" to the Engineering East building. The name was made official in a 1987 dedication ceremony.
