OPINION

Bye kids

I remember sitting in my first Spectrum class. It was fall 2018, the first day of my second year at UB. A year –– I promised myself –– that I would change my perspective. And boy was I in for a treat. Jody started talking about journalism and I was hyped. “This is perfect,” I thought. It was everything I was looking for in a career all lumped into one 300-level class. 


OPINION

Deplorable defense

*This column contains sensitive content about sexual assault which may be triggering. Harvey Weinstein is sitting in Rikers Island jail right now, awaiting a March 11 sentencing for two felony sex crimes. 


FEATURES

‘Fragile’

Haley Sheehan stands at the podium in front of her public speaking class, notecards in hand. She’s the first to present all semester. She looks at her professor and the 24-person audience and nods, signaling she’s ready. She takes a deep breath. “I’m a stripper,” she says.

NEWS

‘A force to be reckoned with’

Students are embracing their culture, their history and highlighting black excellence across campus this week.  The Black Student Union organized events for Black Solidarity Week and celebrated the 52nd Black Solidarity Day with its annual Black Business Expo and unity rally Monday. Roughly 40 students marched from the Student Union down the academic spine carrying signs and chanting, “Say it loud, I’m black and I’m proud,” “No justice, no peace, no racist police” and “BSU.” Carlos Russell started Black Solidarity Day in 1969, bringing African-American communities together on the Monday before Election Day to discuss voting and combating racial inequality.


OPINION

When catchy artists catch a case

No industry boasts problematic faves like the music scene –– with some of the most problematic holding titles as icons. But you still love them, you belt their lyrics and mimic their dance moves.

Buffalo catches the ‘Lovebug’

On Aug. 30, 2009, 12-year-old Sarah Scott’s dreams came true when she saw the Jonas Brothers live in Toronto. Ten years later –– and wearing the same t-shirt from 2009 –– her childhood dreams came true again, this time with a beer in her hand.
