“We should leave things better than when we arrived. That motivates me to continue my efforts to support UB. If it hadn’t been for the support of those who came before me and my peers, I am certain our UB experiences would not have been as rich as they were. We need to keep that legacy going.” -West Richter, BS/MBA ’13, MusB ’13
