Student Life Colleagues,

I hope you are enjoying this beautiful Buffalo weather. It was great seeing each of you at our highly successful Professional Development Day last month. Thanks to all who put that together, allowing us to learn more about trends in higher education from AI to Gen Z. This month, we are looking forward to our annual summer picnic and preparing for a busy August ahead.

Enjoy the fourth.

Vice President for Student Life

Thank you to the Professional Development Day Planning Committee for making this possible!
