The Huffington Post reports UB hall director’s unusual on-campus marriage proposal

Published January 17, 2014

A story on Huffington Post reports on a UB residence hall director who proposed to his girlfriend on Dec. 30, using a gang of friends and a 10-story residence hall building to ask her to marry him. The group blacked out all the windows with poster board, then traced out letters and inserted lights in the holes to spell out his message, and even rerouted buses to make sure that nothing disrupted the proposal. Stories also appeared on WTLV-TV in Jacksonville, Fla., HLN TV, WGRZ-TV and WFMY-TV in Greensboro, N.C.
