I lived, breathed, ate and slept in the UB Libraries

I graduated from UB in May 2010 with a B.S. degree in Biomedical Sciences and a B.A. in Psychology. After graduation, I accepted a neuroscience research fellowship with the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Chemical Defense in Edgewood, Maryland.

As an undergraduate student at UB, I spent, on average, five or six days per week in the UB Libraries, mainly in Silverman, and occasionally in Lockwood and the Health Sciences Library. I lived, breathed, ate and slept in those libraries, and did my best work in those locations. I easily spent more time in the Libraries than I did anywhere else in the entire city of Buffalo!

Every library staff member with whom I interacted was knowledgeable and kind. I want to thank you for your time, services, commitment and generosity, all of which have contributed to my success. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for all that you’ve done for me!
