It's time to find a new calendar

Predicting when the world will end is like predicting when the Bills will win a game ? it's pointless and depressing. Most people have thought about the end of the world at one point in their lives.


Trippin' on Buffa-love

Students can now trip effortlessly. The Student Association is providing discount tickets and transportation for students to explore Buffalo through one of UB's newest programs: UB Trippin'. According to Jennifer Harb, a senior biomedical sciences major, director of SA Student Affairs and a Senior Life Editor at The Spectrum, the new program is striving to show students various aspects of Western New York and enrich students in the diverse cultures rooted deep in the Queen City. "SA is looking to provide students with transportation and discounted tickets to various events, festivals, art galleries, concerts, comedians and seasonal activities like haunted houses," Harb said. The SA executive board and the SA Student Affairs department have collaborated to provide students with off campus experiences. In past years, all incoming freshmen living in campus housing received an SA booklet called Reach.


Bring the spirit

UB's "True Blue Days", which are being held today and Saturday, offer a number of opportunities for students to show their school spirit. Comedian Augusten Burroughs will be performing Friday night in the Center for the Arts at 8 p.m.


Stars align for the Zodiaque

Since the start of the semester, the Zodiaque Dance Company has been practicing relentlessly to become as professional as possible. Throughout this weekend, it will put its hard work on display for the fall concert, "The 37th Season," at the Center for the Arts. This year features pieces choreographed by Ashley Currey, Tressa Gorman Crehan, Michael Hitzel, Matt Pardo and Kerry Ring.

When asked about politics, a typical Buffalo student will respond with "Who cares?" Well, welfare mothers care.
