What’s the Story Behind These Old Photos?
More than four decades after the first UB Block Party (it turned 40 in 2014), this favorite campus event is still going strong, drawing fun-loving, dancing, game-playing throngs of students, faculty and staff to Gordon Plaza. For this issue of the UB Magazine, we’re switching things up a little with a photo comparison of an early block party, 40 years ago in 1975, and the most recent one, in April.
But wait, there’s more!
We still need you to weigh in on the old UB Block Party photos and tell us if you recognize anyone. And we also want your stories. Think back to your UB days and tell us, in a few sentences, about your favorite block party memory. We hope to collect and compile these brief stories for a future issue.
Contact the Office of Alumni Relations by email or at 410.837.6131 to identify the people pictured in the old photos or to share your own block party memories.
