I am so excited to be headed home later today to see my family and friends, eat a lot of food, and recharge my battery before the end of the semester.

This morning we had a practice counseling session where we had to counsel a fake patient (a teaching assistant) on  an osteoporosis medication. It was very straightforward and something I enjoy because it is very hands on. I enjoy how the pharmacy school teaches us things that are really important and clinically based that we will be using for the rest of our careers.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

<![CDATA[What’s on South Campus? ]]> Fri, 13 Nov 2015 17:59:22 +0000 south

When people come to visit UB, they get a tour of our main/largest campus which is the North Campus. Many do no know what is on the South Campus or what it even looks like. Our South Campus was actually the first campus and is very different than North. The architecture is beautiful and most of the buildings are NOT connected to each other. It is located on Main St. in Amherst and is the home of many programs such as architecture, PT and OT, dental, medicine, pharmacy, and nursing. It also has a lot of upper level science classes such as anatomy and physiology. As a freshman most if not all your classes will be on the North Campus, so keep this in mind when applying for housing. I now spend all my time on South Campus and it definitely has a smaller college feel, especially compared to North.

If you are visiting the school and are interested in the programs listed above, I would definitely suggest going to South Campus even if it is just to drive through it. As an upperclassman you will be spending must of your time here so might at well take a look!

<![CDATA[Late-night UB football ]]> Thu, 12 Nov 2015 23:41:13 +0000 Last night the Bulls played a Wednesday night game televised on ESPNU against Northern Illinois. Fans were encouraged to “black out” UB Stadium by wearing all black in support of the Bulls’ black uniforms.

At halftime UB was losing 27-3. The Bulls did end up making a comeback in the second half, but still lost 41-30. If they had won the game, the team would have been deemed bowl eligible. UB has another chance to become bowl eligible by winning the next game on Saturday Nov. 21 against Akron.

Since the game started at 8 p.m., it was very dark outside. The stadium brightly lit the field and looked really cool from a distance. A cannon boomed whenever UB scored and there was a half-time fireworks display that lit up the entire sky. Even though it was quite cold, it was a cool experience to see the Bulls play at night. Despite the loss, good came from the game – senior quarterback Joe Licata became the All-Time Leading Passer in UB Football history!
