Additional 2021 Commencement Information / Awards

Post by Student Life »

Again, the University at Buffalo is actively working on plans for Commencement 2021. Our top priority is the safety of everyone in our UB Community. They are considering all options meeting New York State guidelines for a safe celebration to honor our graduates including our ceremony’s format, date and time. As soon as further information regarding our 2021 Commencement ceremony is available, we will inform our student body.

AWARDS
A variety of student awards are presented to members of our graduating class. Many are associated with a cash prize. Many of our awards allow you to nominate a classmate or nominate yourself (after all who knows your accomplishments better than you). Please see the awards criteria and online submission forms. Most submissions are due March 19, 2021. https://www.law.buffalo.edu/current/com ... wards.html

All graduating students have the opportunity to VOTE for their choice of faculty and staff member who in the eyes of the class has provided outstanding dedication and service. https://sunybuffalolawschool.formstack. ... ent_awards. Voting closes March 19, 2021.

Note that we are unable to retouch photos from other sources to use in the composite.
