Get Involved with SODA

Posted by Tim on February 27, 2021 in Information Session, Student Clubs


Hello hello!!

I hope you’re having a fantastic start to your second week of classes!

For those who have yet to meet me, my name is Savanna Caldwell and I’m the current President of UB’s first ever SODA Chapter! I’m in my final semester here at UB and love getting to know others as well as jamming out on long car rides. My relation to organ donation is that my sisters’ mother passed in a motorcycle accident and was able to help over 70 individuals by being an organ donor, since the accident one of my sisters has become a major organ donation advocate and has partnered with numerous organizations with similar mindsets. From her passion, I found myself also wanting to advocate for organ donation and here we are!

1. Join our GroupMe! Just reply to this email with your email address or phone number that’s connected to your GroupMe, so I can add you! In the Group chat, we send some organ donation memes and talk about how we’re going to plan, it’s basically been a continuation of our first meeting.

2. We’re still anxiously waiting to get connected with our OPO (Organ Procurement Organization) in order to have a training session, so we as a group can be more educated about organ donation! However, if we don’t hear from them before Feb. 25th, there will be a webinar from the ChrisKlug Foundation about the organ donation process. One of my sisters is actually going to be a guest speaker! So if you want to hear more about her story, definitely attend!

Revolt! – A Conference On/In Upheaval

Posted by Tim on March 11, 2019 in Event, Student Clubs

Attention Undergraduates,

The UB Undergraduate English Club is hosting the Fifth Annual
Undergraduate English Conference and is now seeking undergraduate
submissions for presentation. The theme for the conference is revolutions,
uprisings, and upheavals of all kinds, across historical periods and
disciplines. We welcome submissions examining revolutions or radical
change from historical, literary, anthropological, philosophical, or
other points of view. An ideal paper presentation might rely on Marxist
literary theory to relate an important work of literature to its social
setting, or compare historical instances of major political change to the
contemporary moment, for example.

The conference will be held on Friday, April 26 from 12pm to 6pm in
Clemens 120. Light refreshments will be served, and attendance is open to
all students and the public. A 250-300 word abstract will be due by
midnight on Friday, March 15. All abstracts should be emailed as a .doc or
.docx file to
