What's Orientation 2.0? When you arrive on campus for your first semester, we give you as much information as possible at Orientation. But, we know that this can be an overwhelming time, so we’ve decided to break it up!
Throughout the semester, we’re highlighting various events and resources across campus to connect you with all that UB has to offer.
We will have viewing parties for virtual events that you can attend with your fellow graduate students and enjoy free snacks!
