The university will welcome both new and returning students with open arms and fun events during Opening Weekend, UB’s tradition of offering students an event-packed few days before the start of the fall semester and the busy academic year that lies ahead.
This year’s festivities kick off Friday, Aug. 26 at 3 p.m. on the Student Union Field, where the annual interlocking UB photo will be taken. The photo requires more than 1,200 students wearing UB T-shirts to fill in the border of a massive outline of the UB logo. The photo is then taken from above by helicopter.
