Besides being the birthplace of the original chicken wing, Buffalo is the home of beef on weck, chicken finger subs and sponge candy. There are so many places to eat around the City of Buffalo and its suburbs – and plenty of them are located near UB.

The two best places to eat chicken wings in Buffalo are the Anchor Bar and Duff’s Famous Wings — you’ll have to visit both to decide which you prefer. We also have Food Truck Tuesdays in Larkin Square in downtown Buffalo every Tuesday in the warm months and food trucks including Lloyd Taco Truck, Chef’s, Taffy’s and more. Fowler’s and Watson’s, both located on Elmwood Avenue, are great places for chocolate and ice cream. If you’re in Buffalo, you’ve got to stop there and try the sponge candy — it’s my personal favorite.

Every Monday this semester my friends and I have selected a different restaurant from the Amherst-Buffalo area to test out. We’ve visited restaurants like Brickhouse, the Griffon Gastropub, the Chocolate Bar, Blue Monk and Anderson’s as well as area chains like Olive Garden, Applebee’s and the Cheesecake Factory. Although freshmen living on campus are required to have meal plans, I’d recommend getting off campus once in a while to taste all that Buffalo has to offer — because there is a lot of it.

<![CDATA[Rho Chi Honor Society ]]>http://blogs.admissions.buffalo.edu/kateylyne/rho-chi-honor-society/#respond Mon, 25 Apr 2016 18:00:21 +0000 http://blogs.admissions.buffalo.edu/kateylyne/?p=195 This past week I got the honor of getting inducted into our Honor Society in Pharmacy school, Rho Chi. The top 20% academically of our class gets to be in this society and it was such an accomplishment for me to get in. As a college student I have always been very focused on my grades since I always wanted to get into pharmacy through the early assurance program. Now in pharmacy school I thoroughly enjoy what I am learning and I find that it is so important to be able to comprehend all the different topics since in a few short years I will be the expert and patients will be looking up to me for advice.

As a student, always try to keep your goals in mind and work hard to achieve those goals and you will be amazed by what you can actually achieve. I still cannot believe I am in this society but am so glad I don’t have to look back and wonder “What if”. There are so many amazing oppurtunites here at UB you just have to put yourself out there and work your hardest and everything else will fall into place!

<![CDATA[Spring Fest! ]]>http://blogs.admissions.buffalo.edu/elizabethb/2016/04/23/spring-fest/#respond Sat, 23 Apr 2016 12:05:33 +0000 http://blogs.admissions.buffalo.edu/elizabethb/?p=22 It’s that time of the semester again for spring fest. Each semester UB has a concert series that takes place in the Baird point parking lot of about 4 artists. For the small semester and this semester as well it will take place inside of Alumni due to weather. Last year spring fest was the highlight of my semester last year because it was young the giant, in the valley below, bear hands, banks, and royal tongues played and I am a big fan of young the giant. Recently I was able to see bear hands again at this years spring fling, which is a concert series that takes place every spring at the First Niagra center. This spring the chainsmokers, mac miller, coleman hell, and icona pop will be coming and even though it will be inside all of UB is looking forward to it. Both the fall and spring fest’s are free for UB undergraduates.
