A jam-packed Homecoming and Family Weekend in October brought music, reunions, sports and more to the UB community. In addition to the football game, this year’s events offered the chance to learn from faculty and alumni in a variety of “Back to the Classroom” seminars, workshops and tours. The traditional carnival, pep rally, bonfire and fireworks prepped the crowds for the bustle of the tailgate tent party and the Walk to Victory through Stampede Square.
