“We are so excited to welcome everyone — students and their families, alumni and friends, athletes and academics — back to campus to rediscover all that UB has to offer,” said Alumni Director Aimee Marcella. “Welcome Back Weekend 2014 is an invitation for all members of the UB community to reconnect, reminisce, and celebrate their homecoming with Purple Knight Pride!”
