BUFFALO, N.Y. – The Singapore Student Association at the
University at Buffalo hopes to raise money for the Make-A-Wish
Foundation while helping overburdened students study in a healthy,
constructive way by sponsoring a fundraiser featuring renowned
memory expert Dave Farrow from 5-9 p.m. April 1 in 112 Norton Hall
on UB’s North Campus.
The charity event organized by native Singapore students
attending UB will offer stressed students an alternative to the
drug Adderall, which an estimated 30 percent of college students
have used to enhance their ability to study.
“The Farrow method is a good alternative for students
because I see how Dave uses his method to pick up new subjects and
languages really fast,” says Stephanie Chiaw, UB alumnae,
former officer of the Singapore Student Association and
spokesperson for Farrow. “He picked up Cantonese a few years
back and now he speaks Cantonese better than I do.”
Chiaw says a friend took Adderall and was unable to stay alert
halfway into her exam.
“She barely passed the test,” says Chiaw.
Instead, the Singapore Student Association will present a
session with Farrow, a memory expert who has been featured on the
Discovery Channel, CNN, CBS and Fox News. Farrow bills himself as
the current Guinness world-record holder for greatest memory.
Farrow’s memory method will show students how to memorize
technical terms, definitions and speeches; how to absorb foreign
languages; and significantly improve study skills, all through
“The greatest thing about our program is the instant
gratification,” says Farrow. “You will see your results
immediately. Do not underestimate what your brain can do. Once you
get a hold of how the system works, memorizing becomes an easy
Eighty percent of the proceeds of the Farrow presentation will
go to the Make-A-Wish Metro New York Foundation. Tickets are $10
for pre-sale and $15 at the door.
