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.

<![CDATA[Eternal Flame ]]>http://blogs.admissions.buffalo.edu/kateylyne/eternal-flame/#respond Fri, 22 Apr 2016 23:48:14 +0000 http://blogs.admissions.buffalo.edu/kateylyne/?p=191 IMG_2959IMG_2953

I have heard of people going to the eternal flame before and always wanted to see it, so this year I put it on the list of things I needed to do and finally got to go see it. It’s in Orchard Park which is a little less than a half hour drive from UB’s North Campus. The Eternal Flame is a flame under a waterfall that is “eternally” on and due to the natural gases of the little cave it is in.

It was finally beautiful weather last weekend so I got the change to take a hike and see the flame. The hike itself is only about a mile and was relatively simple. The only downside was walking along a creek for half the time, where you either have to walk in the water or the mud. I would highly suggest taking a couple hours to go see this, but make sure to wear the right shoes!
