From the Desk of the Vice President

Wishing You a Happy, Healthy and Peaceful 2022.

Welcome Back Bulls!


Dear Student Life Colleagues,

We’re just a few days removed from our opening and welcome activities, and the response I’ve been receiving from faculty, staff and students during this week has been overwhelmingly positive. For those of you who played such an active role in our programming, whether planning or volunteering, your efforts did not go unnoticed. It took a team effort and collectively Student Life delivered!

Whether they were new students coming to campus for the first time, or returning students being welcomed back for another semester, the excitement and smiles on their faces to start the year was wonderful to see.

I'm looking forward to a rewarding semester ahead with all the anticipation that comes from the start of a new academic year.

Please take a moment to check out the link below recapping some of the best moments from our Fall Opening.

Thanks again for all your efforts in making this a special time to be a student at the University at Buffalo.

Vice President for Student Life
