Meet Our Student-Athletes

 

The University at Buffalo’s Blue & White Fund donors are truly the lifeblood of UB Athletics. These donors are the backbone of support for over 400 student-athletes, representing UB across 16 sports. Private philanthropic support from Blue & White Fund donors ultimately provides each and every student-athlete with an unparalleled experience while on campus.

These opportunities signify a chance to grow both academically and athletically. The goal is for all student-athletes to graduate from UB equipped to thrive for years to come as proud alumni of this world class institution.

Student-Athletes have always been at the center of our overall athletics mission at UB. On a daily basis, they dedicate themselves to pushing their limits in the classroom, on the practice court/fields, in the weight room, and in the community.

Every student-athlete has a unique story to tell and all of them have overcome adversity to grow into the BULL they are today. Below are nine student-athlete stories depicting each individual's path to UB. The student-athletes use this opportunity to express their gratitude to those that have stepped up financially, making their UB experiences so rewarding. Your resources are imperative in order for UB student-athletes to continue to execute our mission.
