Greetings! Over the past three decades, I have had the opportunity to witness the tremendous growth of the University at Buffalo from a unique perspective. Not only am I the most “seasoned” professional staff person in the Office of Admissions, but I am a Buffalo native and a proud two-time alumna, earning a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a master’s in college counseling.

I have also experienced UB through the eyes of my son and daughter, who both attended UB as undergraduate students and went on to exceptional graduate programs. Sharing this marvelous campus with my children may be the highest endorsement I can give the university. They had a wonderful experience here and took advantage of many special opportunities, such as alternative spring break, studying abroad and internships.

UB’s transformation has been exciting to watch; the depth and breadth of choices and opportunities that we offer our students never ceases to amaze me. As the university continues to make progress toward realizing its vision for the future, the next decade may be the most exciting of all. Please come see for yourself and be amazed!
