NSBE members not only display a nice looking banner but also demonstrate that some of us may have chosen the wrong major.

This is why CSO won for the best banner presentation- their members really put on a party as they cruise down Grant St.

''Snovv S-torm 2000''

At first glance it might seem that there are some very over-exposed photos on these pages. Actually the overall whiteness is snow. Amajor storm hit Buffalo on the Monday before Thanksgiving and buried the campus under some two feet of snow. Classes weren't cancelled until well into the afternoon and quite a few students and staff members spent an unexpected night on campus. Most of the snow had melted by the time everyone came back from Thanksgiving break.

Everyone bundled up for the trek between

the nearly obliterated buildings.

\1\TBNY~s ~~Glorified Rehearsal'' In the fall of 2000WBNY, the campus radio station, began

hosting and broadcasting bands from a restaurant in the Student Union that had been set up with a stage and lights. Among the acts that performed were Maple Systems Drive (seen at right top and in the middle being introduced byWBNY's Marissa), Skronk (below), and the Disappointments (bottom).

Buffalo is not just snow, the Bills, and "close to Niagara Falls"...

The Erie Basin Marina in downtown Buffalo offers a great view ofLake Erie and the City. The art deco City Hall can be seen in the center of the top photo here. The Albright Knox Art Gallery (above), home of one of the finest 20th century art collections in the world, is right across the street from BSC - here we see the other side which faces Delaware Park Lake (lower left). Also shown here is the H. H. Richardson designed twin towers of the Buffalo Psychiatric Center - another BSC neighbor.

BSC students who live on-campus or alongElmwoodAvenue will never forget these businesses: Spot Coffee andMister Goodbar for stimulants ofvarious sorts, Pano's for great quickmeals, and the 24 HourStore for anything, anytime. 43

Ne"' on t:he Can1pus When Moot Hall was shut down for remodeling (see opposite page) The Undergrounds Cafe was moved to the Student Union TV lounge. The initial version wasn't very popular so the Cafe was done over with cool green walls, more comfortable furniture, an expanded menu, and a small bank of computers. The result was a more highly patronized venue.

44

Major construction took place on campus with the addition of a new bookstore to the Student Union (below) and the gutting and remodeling ofMoot Hall (bottom). The bookstore opened in April2001. Moot, with its dramatic entrance and shiny (for now) copper roof, will become a student services center with the registrar, bursar, financial aid, and other similar offices all conveniently located together. At right: Perry Quad is re-paved and landscaped after the completion of the bookstore construction.

Books-tore Ribbon Cutting

On a cold late winter day in 2000 a group of campus and local dignitaries gathered in Perry Quad to break ground for a new addition to the Campbell Student Union to house the new college bookstore. Not much more than a year later a similar group gathered to cut the ribbon officially opening the new facility. Among those on hand were state legislator Robin Schimminger and assemblyman SamHoyt (seen flanking BSC president Howard in the photo at right) and Buffalo Mayor AnthonyMasiello. The new store, managed by Barnes & Noble, includes a Java Cafe and some very comfortable seating.

Buffalo Mayor Masiello, who lives a short stone's throw from the campus, promises to be one of the hoped-for neighborhood patrons of the new store.

Anthony Neal, David Milberg and Gail Wells wait under the new lobby skylight for the festivities to begin.

students at BSC live on– campus in the seven residence halls. There are several different styles of "dorm life"- suites, halls, even multi-room apartments, and one dormitory, South Wing, that houses students from all over the world.

The Residence Halls: Opposite page - The Moore Complex and Perry Hall. This page, clockwise from top - Porter Hall, Neumann Hall, North Wing, and one of the four Scajaquada Towers.

Buffalo State has a feeling of serenity all over. I enjoy studying in the library after classes. My favorite place in the library is on the first floor by the corner. Studying is not all I do. I love to go to the gym to keep my body in shape. Sometimes I jog for 15 minutes straight. Racquetball relaxes me and relieves me of my everyday stress. My friends are across the hall just waiting to lend a hand when I need them. Life is wonderful. -YukiLau

It is definitely a fun experience for me staying in North Wing. Dorm life here is like living in a small world village . I've met people from many different areas of the world - Asia, Europe, Africa, and South America. It certainly opened my eyes and mind, not only to different people but different cultures and life styles. Language is another inleresling part of living in North Wing. I've learned some simple greetings in several languages. The suite dorm room style helps people who share a suite build good relationships and flleHLlSliliJ::..

Hanging out, studying, napping, checlcingmessages, eating"wild" pizza, shoppingat the boolcstore and breakfast in the room are all part

ofliving in the residence halls.

The last year of college is a pretty hectic onefor most students. In addition to classes, studios, term papers, research projects, etc., there might be an internship or student teachingassignments. Add in a part– time job andfamily commitments and there's not much timefor thefun– and-games ofthe underclass years. Nevertheless, some BSCSeniors were able to shake offthe stress and look ahead (or back) long enough to smilefor a photo.

Graduating seniors gatheredwith their families and friends outside the BSCSportsArena on an overcast but pleasant spring day. They paused for greetings and photos before entering the i\rcnufor the Commencement Ceremony.

Flowers, balloons, caps, gowns - and lots ofsmiles- were all easily found at graduation.

Once inside the sports complex, the graduates assembled in the ice rink (without ice for the day) while their guests found seats in the Arena. As they gathered, the candidates signed-in and helped each other with those pesky mortarboards.

Finally the waiting is over and everyone is lined-up and ready to march.

The Ceremony Two Academy Award winners- Rita Moreno, who won a 1962 Oscar for her portrayal ofAnita in West Side Story, and 1975 alumna Deborah Oppenheimer, a 2001 Oscar winner for her film Into the Arms of Strangers: Stories of the Kindertransport- were on hand for this year's commencement ceremonies. There were two baccalaureate ceremonies- one at 10 a.m., the other at 2 p.m.- to award degrees to the 1,643 graduates who completed their studies in December 2000, May 2001 or August 2001. The college's master's hooding ceremony was held at 6 p .m. to award degrees and certificates of advanced study to 528 students. Business major Antoine Des'War Williams delivered the student address and Starr Rae Wooden received the President's Medal for Outstanding Undergraduate Student. SUNYChancellor's Awards for Student Excellence were given to student journalist and history major Jonathan Litwin and education major Carol Szalach. Moreno, after an introduction by BSC grad and TV producer Tom Fontana, delivered the keynote address at both baccalaureate ceremonies. She also received a State University of New York Honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts at the afternoon ceremony. Moreno is the only female performer to have won all four of the most prestigious show business awards: the Oscar, the Emmy, the Tony and the Grammy. Distinguished Alumnus Awards were given to Oppenheimer and Scott Baxter, a 1984 graduate and founder and chief executive officer ofVesta Technologies. Oppenheimer is the executive producer of the hit ABC television comedy series The Drew Carey Show, now in its sixth season, as well as ABC's Norm, and WB's Nikki and The Oblongs. The documentary Into the Arms ofStrangers marked her feature film debut. Prior to forming Vesta, Baxter served as founder, chairman and chief executive officer of Hawk Holdings and executive vice president and chief strategy officer for the Internet telecommunications company, Qwest Communications. Monroe Fordham, professor emeritus of History and Social Studies Education, received a SUNY Honorary Doctorate ofHumane Letters. Lauded for his contributions to the location, reclamation and rescue of New York State's African American history, Fordham is co-founder of the Afro-American Historical Association of the Niagara Frontier.

Time-to uWalk!" As proud families and friends watched, the graduates walked up onto the stage and received c l i plUHlaS aUU congratulations.

Some graduates expressed themselves on their mortarboards - usually reliefor gratitude (though sometimes only they knew what it meant).

A reception tent in the Union Quad topped offthe day's events.
