Become a Part of Buffalo State History!

As part of the 150th Anniversary Celebration, the planning and events committee is pleased to announce a competition to develop new lyrics for the Buffalo State College Alma Mater. The committee seeks new poetry to be set to the existing melody of the Buffalo State Alma Mater. Lyrics should fit with the musical melody, represent the mission and values of Buffalo State, and address the strengths found in our diverse community of students, faculty, and staff members. The winner of the competition will receive $2,500 and recognition at the opening ceremonies of the 150th Anniversary Celebration in September 2021. The updated song will become a part of the ceremonial life at Buffalo State for years to come.

Contest rules, submission guidelines, committee members, and deadlines are available online.
