#UBTAGWEEK Participate on Social Media & Win

'TAG' stands for Think About Giving. During this week, we hope you'll learn about the importance of philanthropy and how it makes your life at UB better. For example, without donors, UB wouldn't have numerous scholarships, the Distinguished Speakers Series, study abroad opportunities, the Center for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities or buildings such as Davis and Kapoor halls.

Activities are scheduled for Monday-Thursday External Site Link Icon , culminating with TAG Day on Thursday, Feb. 26*, where you can take part in any of 11 stations set up on the North and South Campuses. Each station will include tags on items that were made possible through generous donors, demonstrating that philanthropy is alive and well at UB.

Win a #UBTAGWeek Prize!

Please help us say thanks to UB donors by posting selfies and other messages on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. All UB students are eligible to win! All entries must use #ubtagweek.

Three ways to enter:

  1. Using props or wearing your UB blue, take and post a selfie.
  2. Post "I <3 UB Donors!"
  3. Get creative! Here are just a few ideas: Get your friends together and make a thank you video, spell out thank you in macaroni, make a heart with your hands or even build a snowman holding a thank you sign. You decide what to post!

Deadline to post is Thursday, Feb. 26 at 5 pm
Prizes: Four $25 Tim Hortons gift cards (one per day, Monday-Thursday) and three $100 VISA gift cards for the best social media posts after TAG Week is over.

UB donors make a big difference for the entire UB community. Let's show them how much we appreciate their support!

*NOTE: The School of Nursing and the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences will hold their TAG Day stations on Tuesday, Feb. 24, in Wende Hall and Kapoor Hall, respectively.

It's On Us Campaign

It's On Us is a cultural movement aimed at fundamentally shifting the way we think about sexual assault. The solution begins with us. It's a declaration that sexual assault is not only a crime committed by a perpetrator against a victim, but a societal problem in which all of us have a role to play. We are reframing sexual assault in a way that inspires everyone to see it as their responsibility to do something, big or small, to prevent it. We are asking everyone to create an environment, be it a dorm room, a party, a club or a sports team, or the greater college campus, where sexual assault is unacceptable and survivors are supported.
