Shooting for the same goal

Alpha Epsilon Delta (AED) was almost shut down in 2010. The pre-health honor society, which was still SA-affiliated, had only three nationally inducted members and was only started to "crawl back up" that year, said AED President Shanelle Raugh, a biochemistry and psychology double major. Now, the club consists of dozens of members who help each other prepare for professional health schools after graduation.

Bobby Hurley was easy to pick out: He was always the smallest, always the youngest at the local basketball courts in Jersey City, N.J., where 25-30 guys lined up to play. The rules were simple: win, and stay on the court, lose, and move to the back of the line.


FEATURES

Acting against discrimination

Jonathan Katz, director of UB's visual studies doctoral program, stood on top of a table in a restaurant in California and shouted, "Ladies and gentlemen, I just want you to know that I'm being thrown out of this restaurant for the simple fact that I'm gay." Katz expected to receive support from his audience.

Handling Halloween

During his freshman year at UB, Tal Kissos, a senior media study major, celebrated Halloween differently from most college students. He was an Oomoa Loompa from the classic film Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. He and eight others wore brown shirts and cut-up white pants from garbage bags.
