From My Kitchen to Your Table is a cookbook project created by Alex Otero and Mara Huber as a way to support Blue Table while creating a resource for students who want to cook homemade meals in college. A group of UB students and staff are designing and assembling a cookbook and need your help to fill it with recipes that are meaningful to you and your family! We want to use recipes from all parts of the UB community in order to represent what “comfort food” means to different people. As a member of the UB community, we would love to include one of your recipes! Please submit your favorite recipe(s) and a related story or memory and share this opportunity with other UB students, faculty and staff.
Don’t miss this opportunity to make the winter break rewarding and collaborative.
We challenge YOU to Reimagine Student Debt & Lending. Introducing this year’s virtual week-long FinTech Design Challenge co-sponsored by M&T Bank and UB’s Business and Entrepreneur Partnerships powered by the Innovation Hub.
This challenge will inspire students to produce innovative, entrepreneurial solutions while gaining experience and knowledge in FinTech from industry experts and faculty – while gaining skills in both design and technical communications, as you expand your network with industry leaders.
Up to $3000 in prizes for the winning teams. Plus, bonus — the 1st place team will earn a paid-internship experience at M&T Bank during the summer ’22 where your teams’ idea will be incubated.
**All undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to participate. No business or banking experience necessary**
FinTech Design Challenge dates: January 10th through 14th, 2022
You will get a hands-on opportunity to learn Autodesk Fusion 360, a professional computer software engineers use for Computer Aided Design (CAD) from two Autodesk employees.
CAD is a great resume booster. It is used in many higher level engineering classes, summer internships, and later in your career. The earlier you get a handle on the fundamentals of CAD, the easier the rest of your engineering career will be. You can use it to 3D print whatever you want in the Bonner 3D printing lab. (oh and there is free food)
Students should follow the following instructions to create and Autodesk EDU account and download Fusion 360 PRIOR to the workshop: www.autodesk.com/fusion360edu.
They should then bring their laptops with Fusion 360 to the honors lounge on 12/2 so they can work hands-on to create their own 3D part with us.
The Department of Theatre and Dance would like invite all UB students* to audition for a role in our upcoming spring season.
*Auditions and casting are open to any UB student carrying at least 3 credit hours. The Department of Theatre and Dance requires that students be in good academic standing to be considered for all production activities. “Good standing” includes, but is not limited to, an overall GPA of 2.0 (and a departmental GPA of 2.5 when applicable).
In order to be considered, all students must audition.
Please find the below and attached information regarding auditions for the productions of:
Twelfth Night, by William Shakespeare Shakespeare’s comedy about love, loss, grief, and being a stranger in a strange place gets re-mixed with popular music from the seventies, eighties, and nineties in a nostalgic, semi-farcical, joyful romp. UB’s production will explore the joy of being together in theatrical spaces, the comfort that a good comedy can bring, and the necessity for human connection in the wake of isolation. Twelfth Night will be directed by Dr. Danielle Rosvally who brings her background as a Shakespearean actor, scholar, dramaturge, and fight director to the project.
12th Night: Opens April 21st in the Black Box Theatre
Violet, a musical with music by Jeanine Tesori and libretto by Brian Crawley Based on the short story “The Ugliest Pilgrim” by Doris Betts, Violet is the story of a young woman who was accidentally injured by an axe blade when she was a child, leaving her with a visible scar and a profound sense of disfigurement and separateness because of it. She travels in a bus across the Deep South in 1964 towards a miracle – the healing touch of a TV evangelist who will make her beautiful. Her journey is shaped by the people she meets, particularly by two soldiers that change the course of her life. Violet is ultimately able to repair those scars that lie beneath her skin to find love and beauty in herself.
Violet: Opens May 5th in the Drama Theatre
How: Sign-up for an initial audition appointment on a sign-up sheet located on production boards opposite the lounge in the Center for the Arts (lower level).
The sign-up sheet will be posted during the day on Monday, Nov 29.
Auditions will be held in room B83, in the basement/lower-level of the Center for the Arts:
Violet callback will be Wednesday, Dec 8 at 6:00 pm (Rehearsal Workshop)
12th Night callback will be Thursday, Dec 9 at 6:00 pm (Rehearsal Workshop)
What: Those auditioning will need:
A two-minute classical monologue (for 12th Night)
There are some singing roles* for 12th Night – if you wish to be considered for singing role, prepare a 16-bar cut of a pop song from the 1970s, 80s, or 90s.
Songs are required for the Violet audition. The song should reflect the style of Violet’s music: American Roots, bluegrass, Memphis blues. BFA Music Theatre students are asked to sing a 32-bar cut (approximately 1 minute of music). All other auditions are asked to sing a 16-bar cut (30-40 seconds of music).
Those interested in the musical must provide their own printed music.
*If you are auditioning for both Violet and 12th Night, you may prepare two monologues plus a song in the style of Violet.
If you wish to be considered for a singing role in 12th Night, the song selection for Violet will suffice.
A headshot and performance resume is required for BFA students. All students are encouraged to bring these materials if available.
Arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment.
Theatre and Dance productions are classes.

We are asking applicants to use the Bullseye/Handshake application system to submit a resume, cover letter and writing sample (such as a published news article, academic essay or other sample demonstrating writing skills).
Our student assistants work with us to write features, news releases and other articles about research, community partnerships and other work carried out by university professors, staff and students. It’s a great opportunity to be creative, tell great stories and gain professional experience in communications. Writing assignments will be similar to those in UBNow and News Center.
Here are just a few of the stories that students have written in our office this semester:
I wanted to reach out to you regarding a fundraiser created by students at the Jacobs School of Medicine. They’ve collaborated with the Buffalo Bills to sell discounted tickets to Bills games where a portion of that ticket cost goes to the Muscular Dystrophy Association of Western New York. This is all in an effort to honor a former guest speaker at the Jacobs School of Medicine who passed away in early 2019 due to his Duchenne’s Muscular Dystrophy. Below is a copy of the promotion!
