Tune in via Zoom on Tuesday April 21st at 7:00pm where Jason Havens P.E. will be guest speaking to discuss how he and his peers adapted to the previous economic change.

Apparel Sale Thanks to everyone who planned on purchasing apparel as well as our PR Chair, Ihab, who set up the sale. Unfortunately, SA has officially cancelled our apparel sale. Since all monetary transactions were handled through the SA ticket office, you will receive a refund through SA. Helping the Community Our faculty adviser, Todd Snyder, was recently featured on UB's website. Snyder is a co-owner of the micro-distillery "Niagara Craft Spirits Distillery and Tasting Room" in Cambria, NY. He has been helping the community during this health crisis by using his distillery to make hand sanitizer, and then giving it away free of charge! Check out this article on how he made this quick production transition. If you would like to show your appreciation, it would be nice to send him an email at tmsnyder@buffalo.edu. Also, once the university reopens and if you happen to see him, please thank him for his efforts to help the Western New York community during these times.
