Since your graduation day, the College has undergone extensive development.  There have been personnel changes, innovations made to classroom technology as well as many facility upgrades throughout campus. To re-acquaint you with UBCC, there will be an alumni celebration during the UB Homecoming & Reunion Weekend on Saturday, October 7, 2017.  We hope you will join us to during the day to see first-hand the improvements made to the facilities and spend some time with old and new colleagues and friends.

Visit our state-of-the-art anatomy laboratory, library, Human Performance Lab and our recently renovated UB Health Sciences Center which includes a newly acquired digital CR x-ray unit.  Visit with your fellow alumni and renew your connection with UB and the College of Chiropractic.  You may want to spend the day by attending the barbecue lunch, followed by viewing the UB Knights men and women’s soccer teams in action.  Then join us in the evening for the Benefit Dinner in the elegant DuPont Tower Room in the Arnold Bernhard Center.
