Shortage of tickets for Winter Gala

12/04/17 2:27am | By WANLY CHEN

Student Association’s Winter Gala has been an eagerly anticipated event for UB students since the tradition began in 2001, but many students will be unable to attend this year after the 800 tickets to the event sold out within two days.

Students shared their frustration about the sold out event, citing conflicting work and class schedules as reasons for their inability to purchase tickets in time, while SA representatives ­­–– who are able to reserve and purchase tickets at a discouned rate ­­–– believe nothing can be done to improve the system.

The Gala, reminiscent of a high school prom and hosted at Samuel's Grande Manor on the Saturday after the last day of classes, invites hundreds of students to dress up in their best formal wear for a classy night of entertainment.

Tickets are sold for $30 at the SBI office on North Campus and at Harriman Hall on South Campus.

Gettin' muddy with it

Seven and a Half White Men struggled to march out of the knee-deep mud pit. Their faces were barely visible through the layers of caked-on mud from seven hours of grueling and demanding volleyball.

For the third year in a row, the eight players were victorious.

The 29th-annual Oozefest tournament took place on Saturday in the mud pit behind the South Lake Apartment Complex.
