BUFFALO, N.Y. -- What's going on at the University at Buffalo?

You can find out by tuning in to "UB Today," a 30-minute program that airs on Adelphia and TCI Cable.

The program highlights UB-affiliated individuals who discuss their research, projects, events and activities with hosts William J. Evitts and Judith Schwendler.

Evitts is executive director and Schwendler is an assistant director in the UB Office of Alumni Relations, which produces the program in cooperation with Adelphia Cable.

Since the program premiered in February 1996, viewers have been served a smorgasbord of subjects, among them holiday shopping hints, the role of soap operas in society, updates on UB's athletic programs, health and medical advances, and the opening of cultural exhibits and productions.

A new program airs and is rebroadcast each month.

July's program features Mary Gresham, interim vice president for public service and urban affairs, discussing the "Wade in the Water" exhibit in the Center for the Arts; Susan Mistrett, director of the Let's Play Project!, and Jeff Sherven, instructional support assistant in the Experimental Print Imaging Center (ePIC), discussing ePIC and printmaking.

Air times during July on Adelphia Cable are 1 p.m. every Friday during the month and 6:30 p.m. every Sunday on Channels 10, 18, 23 or 30. The show also is shown at 6:30 p.m. every Friday on TCI Channel 21.

In August, Adelphia will air "UB Today" at 6:30 p.m. on Sundays. TCI will air the show at 6:30 p.m. on Fridays. Scheduled guests and their topics are Stephen Halpern, professor of political science, the King Urban Life Center; Dennis Black, vice president for student affairs, student drinking; and UB Bulls coach Craig Cirbus, the 1998-99 football season.
