The following message was sent to all UB students from Nicole Marano, associate vice president for Student Success & Support Services, on September 10, 2020:
Dear UB Students:
Greetings from the Division of Student Success & Support Services! As you are aware, UB is open and operating in a virtual environment. So what does this mean for you?
First, it means that your health and safety are UB's top priorities!
Second, it means your classes will be delivered online. You should connect with your instructors early and often when you have questions about your syllabi, coursework, or class expectations.
Third, it means that we will be offering student services, events, and student organizations all online as well. If you are interested in or need to connect with the Bob Parsons Veterans Center to inquire about your military benefits; the Career & Internship Center to meet with your assigned career coach or to attend a career fair; or the Rosenberg Center for Student Involvement to check out an awesome student organization - WE ARE HERE! We are open and want to engage with you!
Student-facing services such as Disability & Access Services, Student Assistance Program, Office of Financial Aid, Office of the Bursar, international student services, and academic advising are all here to support you via phone, email, or Zoom meetings. Please reach out to any of these offices and staff members to connect and get the assistance that you need.
Student events, activities, and organizations will take place virtually throughout the semester. Although there will be no in-person on-campus or off-campus events this semester, UB will have so many great opportunities for you to engage virtually! Please plan to attend Student Government Association, Student Event Board, diversity programs, and other student events via Zoom and Microsoft Teams.
Although the Campus Pantry is not operating this semester, our Division is partnering with off-campus organizations and the SGA to promote food pick up locations, COVID 19 testing locations, and other helpful resources. We will continue to message these opportunities via social media, UB's COVID 19 website, and email. Please be on the lookout for these communications.
UB is a community that is here for you. We are truly excited that you are a part of our institution and are here to support you and your success! UB IS BUILT FOR THIS!
Best wishes for a successful semester,
Nicole C. Marano
Associate Vice President for Student Success & Support Services
