An on-campus Valentine's Day date

For your last-minute Valentine's Day enjoyment


With Valentine’s Day around the corner, there’s little time left for planning an extravagant outing. Whether or not you have a date or the ability to leave campus, there’s plenty to do at UB to fill your V-Day with excitement. Here are some events that take place on Saturday, tailored for all types of fun-seekers.

Winterfest 2015

This event presents a variety of activities for those looking for something a little less romantic. Activities to enjoy include ice bowling, snowman and igloo building contests (with prizes, of course), taking a horse drawn carriage ride or various smaller games that will be held indoors.

In addition to the activities planned for the event, the ice rink will be open to skate from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. and from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. From 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. the ice rink will be open solely to the broomball tournament. To participate, register online through UB events. Round up your friends to make a team and head over to the Student Union for a day full of winter fun.

Film Screening

The Center for the Arts will be screening “The Age of Love” at 1 p.m. in the CFA Screening Room. The documentary is set in Rochester, New York and follows the quest of 70-90 year olds who restarted dating. The film follows 30 seniors who candidly discuss what they’re looking for and about their past experiences, while filming their adventures to create a comically poignant picture. For a new look at life and love, see the film and appreciate how love changes over time.

Buffalo Chips

The all-male UB a cappella group will be celebrating their 20th anniversary with songs, skits and sweet solos during their performance at 7:30 p.m. in the Center for the Arts’ Mainstage Theatre. The group will be performing songs from their newest album “Blue & White” as well as classic favorites. The concert will have a Valentine’s Day feel to it, as it’ll be filled with songs of love and romance. Tickets for the event can be purchased online at, at the CFA box office or at the door for $10.

Miro Quartet performance

The world-renowned quartet will be performing at Lippes Concert Hall in Slee Hall at 7:30 p.m. on Valentine’s Day for their second show in a three-show installment. The other two parts take place Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 3:00 p.m.

The group’s Beethoven String Quartet Cycle is perfect for fans of classical music or students looking for something a little more cultured on their evening of romance. Relax and enjoy the music of violins, a viola and a cello during this event that’s free for all UB students.


C3 will be hosting a special dessert night for lovers of chocolate to satisfy that V-day sweet tooth. Chocolate lover or not, the event is a perfect way to interact with other students and enjoy an evening with friends or just talk to your date. The dining hall is now taking reservations, so book your seat to the sweet occasion.
