Do-It-Yourself (with Our Help)

Hey Bengals! Are you an R.A.? Are you part of a student group on campus? Or are you just looking to get involved by giving back to your community? Engage in a service project with your friends and student group members. We provide the materials; you'll return the finished projects to our office. From there, we will distribute to a community organization in need. 

Service Projects

For Faculty

Don't Cancel That Class! 

Instead of canceling class for your appointments, emergencies, or unexpected changes, you can email labellam@buffalostate.edu and ask for one of these DIY Project Kits to be brought to your students during the regularly scheduled class time. 

In your email please include: Class name (so we can tailor the project to the class's focus if applicable), location, time, number of students, and any other necessary information.
