Tell Students: Alternative Break Week Activities - April 9-13

The Civic and Community Engagement Office's Alternative Break Student Leadership Team will host a variety of events on campus next week, April 9–13. Alternative Break Week is designed to provide students with the opportunity to get connected to student leaders, learn more about the program, and provide opportunities for Buffalo State students to serve the community.

Grant Street Cleanup

Learn about the West Side as you assist with spring cleanup efforts. You’ll be led by student leaders and provided with snacks, gloves, garbage bags, and other cleanup necessities. Meet the team in South Wing 137 at 11:00 a.m. or noon for an hour and a half of service.

Motivation Booklets for Buffalo Public Schools Students

De-stress with Alternative Break
