Is the n-word overrated?
Every time I ask my friends not to say “n---a,” I get the following responses: “Oh, you know I didn’t mean it that way,” “It’s part of the song so relax" or “I’m a person of color, so it’s OK.”
One World Café construction to continue through fall semester
After two years of planning, construction for the One World Café began on May 20.
The roughly $20 million project is expected to be completed by August 2021. UB hired CannonDesign, an integrated global design firm, to handle construction for the over 50,000-square-foot cafe. The cafe will be between Capen Hall and Norton Hall on North Campus, causing construction to impact students’ navigation paths starting in the fall. Graham Hammill, vice provost for educational affairs and dean of the graduate school, said construction will be a “large” and “marginalizing” process, as it will affect a large part of North Campus.
Inside One World Café
One World Café will become the “new front door” to North Campus, according to its steering committee.
The upcoming global cafe, featuring a “modern” design, will be three floors high with “alternating” food available on two of the floors and seating available on all three.
