Looking for a tasty way to celebrate commencement? How about a homemade UB cookie? Campus Dining & Shops is sharing the recipe so you can enjoy one of UB’s sweetest traditions from afar. Tag your creations using #UBClassof2020!
Seniors can share their favorite UB memories to create a larger, community-driven memento image. Viewers can click on individual photos within the mosaic to see personal memories. Following commencement, a poster will be created of the finished mosaic.
Students can leave their legacy by virtually "signing" the 2020 Sign-A-Bull. The Class of 2020 Sign-a-Bull will be the first in a future "Hall of Bulls." Sign-A-Bulls from previous graduating classes will we be digitized for subsequent inclusion.
