From My Kitchen to Your Table

Posted by Tim on November 30, 2021 in Community Announcements, Event, Uncategorized

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.


Honors Fusion 360 Workship December 2 at 6:00pm

Posted by Tim on November 29, 2021 in Community Announcements, Event, Workshops


Thursday December 2nd 6 – 7:30 pm


Honors lounge


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:

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.


Jacobs School of Medicine Buffalo Bills Ticket Fundraiser

Posted by Tim on November 22, 2021 in Community Announcements, Event

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!

The Muscular Dystrophy Association fundraiser through the Buffalo Bills is back! If you’re considering going to the Panthers, Falcons, or Jets game this season, please use the link below: Use code “21MuscDysAssoc” to help raise money for children with various muscular dystrophies in Western New York! $5 of each discounted ticket will go towards our total gift to the MDA. In 2019, we raised over $2,600 in those $5 increments and we hope to exceed that goal, so please share this with whoever you can!

UB Study Abroad Global Gallery: Photo Exhibition Featuring the Best Abroad Photos from 2011-2021 November 15-19

Posted by Tim on November 15, 2021 in Community Announcements, Event, Study Abroad

Monday, November 15 through Friday, November 19 Talbert Hall 2nd Floor and on the Study Abroad Facebook Page

The UB Office of Study Abroad Programs is excited to announce our 2021 Global Gallery: Photo Exhibition. Although the current pandemic has made it difficult for students to participate in traditional education abroad programs and other international activities over the past 18 months, we know that student interest in these programs remains very high and hope that conditions will allow us to offer a range of transformational education abroad programs in 2022.

In recognition of the 2021 International Education Week (IEW), we have organized a photo exhibition that showcases 40 of the best UB student photos from study abroad experiences over the past decade (2011-2021). While we don’t have any new photos from the past year, we believe that it’s more important than ever to celebrate UB’s commitment to global education and to share amazing photos from the past to help everyone get excited about future opportunities for members of our UB community. International Education Week is a time for every student, staff, and faculty member to share international stories and photos, celebrate our diverse campus community, and recognize the positive local and global impact of education abroad programs.

Our Global Gallery: Photo Exhibition will be held in Talbert Hall in the 2nd Floor Hallway from November 15-19, 2021. We will also post these incredible student photos to our Facebook page. Please join us for this celebration of International Education Week and UB study abroad alumni!
