It's the memories ? not the education ? that make college a worthwhile experience. My freshman year feels like just yesterday, and it was a great precursor to the last four years. Pritchard, MacDonald and Schoellkopf Halls all look better from the outside, and that's not saying much.
Every year, thousands of UB students risk their lives by renting homes that violate city and state building codes. In an eight-block radius within the University Heights, 75 landlords rent properties that total hundreds of violations. Since August, four houses rented by UB students caught fire.

If you're one of the six people who haven't heard of barstoolsports.com, stop everything you're doing and get to a computer. Seriously.
Carmelo Anthony is finally a Knick. Instead of worrying about where the next free-agent saga will come from (although I'd bet on Utah's Deron Williams milking the spotlight), let's consider what this trade means for the future of New York basketball. The Knicks gave up three starters whose average age is under 24, including one player, Raymond Felton, who will more than likely become an NBA All-Star at some point in his career. Furthermore, Isiah Thomas James Dolan and company shipped away a 2014 first-round draft pick, along with Timofey Mozgov, a 24-year-old center who has started 14 games this season, and who put up promising numbers (23 points and 13 rebounds) on Jan.
When James Starks walked into the press conference room in Alumni Arena on Tuesday night, the young NFL running back's smile was infectious. Starks, a former Bulls running back who won a Super Bowl two Sundays ago with the Green Bay Packers, was grinning ear-to-ear as he sat down with the media before the men's basketball team took on Ohio University. After returning to Western New York a week and a half ago, Starks has been greeted with nothing but love from his family and friends. "I came home, and saw all of the support I had," Starks said.
It's relatively easy for UB to set standards on campus, especially when it comes to housing. Taming the beast of off-campus renting, however, is often far more complicated. To provide information and general guidelines, Off-Campus Student Services is conducting meetings this week to raise awareness about some of the issues students may face while renting off campus in Buffalo. "These sessions are important for students who are considering renting an apartment," said Dan Ryan, director of off-campus student services, in an e-mail.
