Phillip Tucciarone UB feature story Interview on WBFO

Be One of Our Best

Non scholae sed vitae discimus. (“We learn, not for school, but for life.”) - after Seneca, Epistles 106.12.

In today’s globalized environment, it’s vitally important to stand apart from the crowd as an independent thinker. It’s also essential to have the depth of knowledge and breadth of experience needed to work in a wide cooperative network. The ever evolving economic, technological, and cultural landscape means it is likely that you will change jobs several times over the course of your career. As a result, you must be creative to succeed in the international marketplace of ideas. The UB Honors College will prepare you for this dynamic future by:

  • Emphasizing experiential learning, providing transforming life experiences both inside and outside the traditional classroom by encouraging study abroad, internships, and community service.
  • Fostering scholarship through undergraduate research, graduate work, capstone courses, or an Honors thesis.
  • Requiring a detailed annual review of career plans with our professional advisement staff, recognizing that the majority of students change their majors, often with unexpected opportunities.
  • Conferring a strong Honors experience throughout all four years at UB, enhancing the interaction of students and faculty mentors, and producing a strong network of scholars for the future.
