The basketball program is going big time.  Lets show our pride and make some noise all around the country.  #HORNSUP

I'm disappointed that a gathering was not organized for those of us in Northern California. As a proud UB alum who worked as a student assistant in the President's Office all four years of my college life under President Sample and President Greiner, I had the opportunity to meet President Tripathi a few years back on a visit to Western New York and mentioned the need for a potential chapter here in the Sacramento area. I'm just not sure if there are enough of us to support it. Perhaps this inquiry can start a dialogue?

I live in Long Beach, CA. Do you have any UB parties in this area so I can watch with other UB grads?

How about Rochester? There must be some watch parties in Rochester.

 

Go Bulls!

Where are the San Francisco Bay Area alums watching the games?

Although not an "official" site, I believe the Trattoria Belsito on Hertel also will be hosting a gathering to watch the game tomorrow.

Horns up, alums!
