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.

Thirty-three years ago, Dr. Michael Frisch was arrested during his first year of teaching. On March 15, 1970, the 26-year-old history professor was part of the "Faculty 45" - a non-violent sit-in of 45 faculty members protesting UB's use of Buffalo police officers on campus. The faculty members sought to discuss a more peaceful approach to student conflicts that were occurring at UB.

It started out as an accident. Kayla Cornell thought she was attending an event for the Colleges Against Cancer her freshman year, but ended up at a Community Action Corps meeting. There, she became dedicated to helping others.


Extend your life by giving instead of receiving

It truly is better to give than to receive. It's a proven fact. A recent study conducted over five years across three universities - Stony Brook University, Grand Valley State University in Michigan and UB - reveals that providing help to others results in a decreased association between stress and mortality.
