I had been leery of Student Assembly from the beginning. My first encounter was last March, when the Graduate Student Employees Union’s Lobby Day and SA’s SUNYpalooza fell on the same day. GSEU members crashed the SUNYpalooza rally, giving the mic to students who were mad that SA, in their name, was advocating against their [...]
1. Amy’s Place (3234 Main Street in University Heights): A UB classic, Amy’s serves hundreds of meat-eaters every day, many of whom don’t know about the restaurant’s extensive vegan and vegetarian menu. The marinated seitan or smoky tofu (with some help from the vegan garlic spread) can turn most of the meat-based dishes veg and the wide [...]
So, you’ve probably seen our recipes for breakfast in a rice cooker, and we promised chocolate cake. We wouldn’t want to make empty promises.

We’ll be distributing print copies of the 2011 Buffalo Disorientation Guide on campus all week. We’ll even have a Thursday distribution day on South Campus!
Tomorrow you can find us along the Spine and at Ellicott Complex. Look for someone yelling about newspapers.
If you would like to schedule a pickup of a bundle for [...]
We’re sure you’ve heard plenty about UB2020, the ambitious plan to overhaul the university. What is UB2020, really, and who is behind the plan? A look at its history should help us begin to answer this question.
A good place to start is the arrival, in early 2004, of former UB President John B. Simpson. [...]
The UB Archives are home to 63 boxes of files relating to campus unrest. One even includes a tear gas canister blasted off by police in response to a series of student-led rallies, sit-ins, walk-outs, and occupations that led to 300 state police in full riot gear to confront a group of 2000 students, faculty, [...]
Need a movie break? Well, be sure not to break your mind or mojo with some Starz Play crap or Pirates of the Carribbean again. We have taken the time to pair some movies that go well together, that you might not have seen (or heard about) before. These pairings inform, support, or debate each [...]
The freshman 15 is often rumored to be the result of increased alcohol consumption during the first year of college life. While this is true, the more serious contributors are the consumption of fat, corn syrup and other processed foods, carb-rich cafeteria food, and fast food. When all of that fuels your day, plus a [...]
You may, in your time on campus, see posters, flyers, and other materials encouraging you to “go green” and “use alternative transportation.” The implication here, of course, is to ride mass transit, ride a bicycle, or walk to get to, from, and around campus. Pedal power is celebrated by some on campus and many more [...]
As students, we have a distinct disadvantage: time is not on our side. There are benchmarks to make, papers and exams, and application deadlines that happen on regular cycles for almost everything – scholarships, internships, jobs, our next round of schooling – that limit us as we try to reason about time. Our time is [...]
