Share Your Legacy Story
When you enrolled at UB, were you following in a family member's footsteps? Or were you the one paving the way for others? If you and your family member(s)—parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, children, etc.—graduated from UB, we want to hear from you! Email your legacy story with names, relationships and photos to receive a small gift from us. Plus, we may ask to feature you in future alumni communications.
A first-generation college student is defined as one who is the first in their family to attend a four-year university to earn a bachelor's degree. In 2016, 40% of the UB student population was first-generation, and this is a stat we celebrate! If you were a first-generation student, let us know by emailing us your story. We hope to build the first-gen network at UB and collect your stories to share with future students.
