Card Writing Event for Hannah Bocker This Wednesday, September 4th, ASCE will be holding a card-writing event and promoting a fundraiser for Hannah Bocker in Davis Lobby from 10:00am-2:00pm. On August 18th, a plane had struck the home of our fellow senior civil engineering student in Lagrangeville, NY. 21-year-old UB student Hannah Bocker is currently in critical condition while losing her father, dogs, house, and much more. We are calling all students and faculty to come together in support during this tragic time for the Bocker family. Come sign a get-well card which will be mailed to Hannah’s hospital.
