Students were dancing until dawn to raise funds for the Pennies for Peace organization on Friday night in the Student Union. Free prizes, raffles, cotton candy, popcorn, a kick-line, and dancing occupied the SU lobby on Friday night as students crowded for the fourth annual Stay-Up UB fundraiser. "It is an opportunity for students to give back [to the community] and participate in a philanthropic event, while building UB pride and a new tradition," said Terri Budek, the community engagement coordinator for the Center for Student Leadership & Community Engagement. The dance-marathon fundraiser displayed the heart of UB pride.
The third annual Mass Appeal Elmwood Village fashion event packed the Lafayette Presbyterian Church to capacity Friday night.
College is the first time that many students are out of their parents' direct supervision. Parties, bars and alcohol usually serve as icebreakers for those meeting hundreds of new people. However, drinking under the age of 21 is illegal under federal law and is thus not allowed anywhere on campus.
