Dear Members of the Class of 2017:
The Class of 2016 is delighted to welcome you to the UB School of Dental Medicine! Our Orientation Committee has been hard at work planning an exciting line up of events for your first week in Buffalo.
The events for this week include bowling at Transit Lanes, a picnic at Island Park with the Class of 2016, and SkyZone!
*** ALL orientation events except the Family Day on Friday are for STUDENTS ONLY. Although we realize some of you have family members, significant others, etc., the events are limited to students only due to feedback from current students' experiences. This is an important time for you as a new class to get to know each other and get acclimated for the intensive program you are embarking upon. Enjoy this week having fun with your classmates and preparing for the journey ahead!
The week will conclude with a buffet lunch at Banchetti by Rizzo’s on Family Day (Friday) after the White Coat Ceremony, and your whole family is invited! The Alumni Association has graciously provided funding for the activities we’ve got in store; therefore, all events are free of charge for every member of the class! Last year each event had an awesome turnout, and it was a great way to get to know each other before school officially began!
Informal and unofficial gatherings, not sponsored by the UB SDM orientation committee, will also take place some evenings during orientation week. Keep your ears open for these events as well.
Congratulations and welcome to the UB SDM! We look forward to meeting you all in August!
