The Emergency Response Planning Group and University Police will conduct a test of the college’s outdoor emergency alert horn at 1:30 p.m. Thursday, October 20.

People who are outdoors during the test will hear a series of three loud 60-second horn blasts emanating from the central heating plant. Please note: the horn is primarily intended to be audible at outdoor locations on campus-not inside buildings.

In a real emergency, the horn would sound for a minimum of five full minutes. If a real emergency alert is signaled, immediately seek shelter and await further instructions communicated via Buff State Alert, e-mail, or suny.buffalostate.edu or direct instructions from University Police. For more information on Buffalo State’s comprehensive emergency response plan, please visit http://police.buffalostate.edu/emergency-response-plan.

Approximately 30 minutes before the test horn sounds, the college will issue a campuswide test of the Buff State Alert emergency communication system. At this time, all students, faculty, and staff members who have registered with the service will be sent a test message.

Students, faculty, and staff members who wish to enroll in Buff State Alert or modify their preferences may do so by visiting https://buffstatealert.buffalostate.edu and logging in with their Buffalo State user name and password. Those who do not have a Buffalo State user name or password but want to receive text messages from Buff State Alert can sign up by texting the phrase “buffalostate” to 79516.

Occasionally, job postings appear to be from credible employers, but they are actually scams. “Employers” illegally ask for personal or bank account information, or send you unexpectedly large checks. While the Career Development Center catches many of these scams, we do not knowingly cooperate with organizations that make such requests. We recommend you do not respond to those inquiries. If you suspect a scam or have questions about the legitimacy of a job announcement, please contact the CDC for assistance.

Two major changes to nearby roadways have affected travel to and from the Buffalo State campus, and traffic delays are expected with the start of the academic year. The campus community is reminded to allow for extra time when traveling to and from campus.

In June, the New York State Department of Transportation (DOT) began a long-term project to replace the Elmwood Avenue bridge over Route 198. This project will run through fall 2016.

North-south traffic on Elmwood Avenue has been reduced to one lane in each direction over the bridge. The off-ramp from Route 198 East onto Elmwood Avenue will remain open, as will the off-ramp from Route 198 West to southbound Elmwood Avenue; however, traffic has been slowed because of the lane restrictions. For more information on the Elmwood Avenue project, please visit the DOT website.

The DOT has also instituted several changes to Route 198 following the Delaware Park accident in May. The speed limit has been reduced to 30 m.p.h.; lanes have been narrowed; stop signs have been installed at the foot of on-ramps; and traffic signals and crosswalks will be installed near Delaware Park. More information on this project is available online.
Buffalo State does not manage these projects, but the campus community should expect delays on surrounding roadways. Please remember to account for these traffic changes in your daily routine and allow yourself additional travel time.

I’d like to call your attention to two opportunities you might want to take advantage of. Both are run out of Buffalo State’s Office of Undergraduate Research and you can learn more about all of the programs offered through this office by going to:

http://undergraduateresearch.buffalostate.edu/
(use tab for 'Programs' or 'For Students'

Have you seen posters with ‘sun logos’ around campus? These posters are announcing the annual Student Research and Creativity Celebration (SRCC) and this year marks the 17th time this event has been held. The SRCC is a college-wide activity that provides a very friendly place for students to present the results of research projects, scholarly activities, and creative works. You can present a ‘work in progress’ or something you completed in the past year. Presentation formats include: posters, talks, demonstrations, display of artwork, and performance pieces. Your presentation can be done as an individual or as a small group of students. If you are interested in applying to present at this year’s SRCC, you’ll need the support of a faculty mentor and you’ll need to complete your online application by midnight, March 17th. You can access the online application by using the link above or use the QR code found on posters located around campus. Even if you are not planning to present, plan to attend to see and hear all the interesting things your classmates are doing.

The second program you might want to consider applying to is the Undergraduate Summer Research Program. This program provides a summer stipend so you can devote 8 weeks of full-time study exploring a research, scholarly, or creative activity. You will need to have a faculty mentor, so if you are interested in applying to this program, first learn more about it (use the url above and the quick link from the homepage) and then go talk to a faculty member. You can identify a research/scholarly/creative project of you own and see if a faculty member is willing to be your mentor, or, you might be able to work on a faculty member’s ongoing project. The deadline for applying to this program is midnight, April 1st. We plan to award 28 research fellowships for the upcoming summer. To learn more about this program you and your mentor can attend an Information Session on March 10 (12:15-1:30 p.m.), March 11 (12-12:50 p.m.), or March 12 (12:15-1:30 p.m.) in Butler Library Room 210B. Apply and you could be one of the recipients!

The State University of New York and Buffalo State College want you to get the information and support you need regardless of whether you would like to move forward with a report of sexual violence to campus officials or to the police. The Buffalo State University Police have developed a new option for confidentially disclosing sexual violence, the online University Police Sexual Assault Anonymous Report. This report can be found on the department’s webpage, under the Sexual Assault Prevention section. This form is for reporting a sexual assault anonymously to the Buffalo State University Police, in compliance with the Federal Student Right to Know and Campus Security Act, to assist with the compilation of statistical records for assaults that occur on the campus. Filing this form will not result in an investigation unless requested. A person who has been assaulted may fill out and submit! this form himself or herself, or may ask a third party (such as a friend or a counselor) to do so. Without compromising the victim’s confidentiality, this anonymous report can alert the campus to the fact that an assault has occurred and can assist the Buffalo State University Police in detecting patterns and preventing future assaults.

The State University of New York and Buffalo State College want victims to get the information and support they need regardless of whether they would like to move forward with a report of sexual violence to campus officials or to police. Links to the Sexual Assault Victim’s Bill of Rights and a Notice to Victims of Sexual Assault is available on the web page.

This form should not take the place of a call to University Police for immediate assistance- contact University Police at (716) 878-6333.
Campus personnel, other than those with significant counseling responsibilities (such as licensed professionals or certified counselors), must file a report when informed by a student of a sexual assault, to maintain campus compliance with the Federal Crime Awareness Act.
Any questions regarding this report should be directed to University Police at
police@buffalostate.edu

From the Vice President for Finance and Management

The Emergency Response Planning Group and University Police will conduct a test of the college’s outdoor emergency alert horn at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, October 28.

People who are outdoors during the test will hear a series of three loud 90-second horn blasts emanating from the central heating plant. Please note: the horn is primarily intended to be audible at outdoor locations on campus—not inside buildings.

In a real emergency, the horn will sound for a minimum of five full minutes. If a real emergency alert is signaled, immediately seek shelter and await further instructions communicated via Buff State Alert, e-mail, or www.buffalostate.edu or direct instructions from University Police.

Approximately 30 minutes before the test horn sounds, the college will issue a campuswide test of the Buff State Alert emergency communication system. At this time, all students, faculty, and staff who have registered with the service will be sent a test alert via text message, automated phone message, or e-mail.

Students, faculty, and staff who wish to enroll in Buff State Alert or modify their preferences may do so by visiting https://buffstatealert.buffalostate.edu and logging in with their Buffalo State user name and password. If you do not have a Buffalo State user name or password but still want to receive text messages from Buff State Alert, you can sign up by texting the phrase “buffalostate” to 79516.

On Friday, October 3, 2014 SUNY Buffalo State’s Division of Student Success, the Residence Life Office presents After the Fire: A True Story of Heroes & Cowards, a documentary based on two survivors of a Residential fire at Seton Hall. This event is designed to initiate awareness and promote continuous conversations about fire safety issues on campus. The location of this event will be held at the Sports Arena starting at 3pm.
This documentary is based on a true story: On January 19, 2000 Seton Hall University was vaulted to the national news when a fire set by arsonists raced through a freshman dorm, killing three students and injuring fifty eight others. Two of the most critically burned survivors were freshman roommates Shawn Simons and Alvaro Llanos. Laying in a coma, Shawn and Alvaro were unaware that a journalist and photographer were documenting every event in their fight for survival. The story proceeds from the devastating fire through the grueling medical treatment until their return to the same school where their ordeal had begun.
More info: http://www.afterthefiremovie.com

This program is open to our Buffalo community but MANDATED FOR ALL RESIDENTIAL STUDENTS.

This event will feature a screening of the film, an audience and speaker Q&A after the film. The survivors, Shawn Simons and Alvaro Llanos will be present to respond to the Q&As
