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.

When Daniel DeVoe arrived at UB in the fall of 2011 to attend law school, UB's law school environment had no opportunities for an LGBT student or anyone interested in LGBT law. Instead of wishing he had chosen a school with a thriving LGBT community, DeVoe did something about it.

Celebrating Easter on campus

03/28/13 12:00am | By ALYSSA MCCLURE

Many UB students are unable to travel home for the Easter weekend since UB does not cancel classes for Good Friday and holds classes the next Monday, making it difficult to allot time for travel. But there are opportunities on campus for students to partake in, including Easter Sunday mass and Good Friday services.
