Celebrating Traditions and Creating New Ones

September 3, 2021

Dear Colleagues, 

I wanted to send a sincere thank you and congratulations for the hard work put forth in making this year's Welcome Weekend and Opening Week a huge success. Our events marked the start of a semester unlike any other and I hope it's an indicator of the many memorable moments to come this fall.

Together, we welcomed thousands of students to a variety of engaging events including the iconic Interlocking UB, Welcome Carnival, Campus Fest, a late night dance party, Bulls Welcome Back Blast and our student tailgate party last night.

Thanks again for all of your support during my first few months on campus. I'm confident our students had a great kickoff to the fall semester and appreciate the effort you put towards making their UB experience memorable.
