BUFFALO, N.Y. – Tonight, hundreds of University at Buffalo alumni will gather at Buffalo’s iconic Larkinville venue to celebrate their alma mater.

UB President Satish K. Tripathi will deliver remarks, and throughout the night, alumni can visit informational tables to learn about volunteer opportunities at UB and in local community, and participate in contests for the chance to win prizes every half hour.

The event is scheduled for Friday, Sept. 19, at 745 Seneca St. from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Remarks are slated for 7:30 p.m. Media are encouraged to attend.
