BUFFALO, NY – In an effort to better reconnect with former student-athletes, the University at Buffalo athletics department has unveiled a new Block B Letterwinners Association. A revised and improved webpage, www.ubbulls.com/BlockB, will allow former student-athletes, athletic trainers, team managers and spirit squad members to stay connected with UB Athletics.
"The goal of the Block B Letterwinners Association is to enhance the relationship between former student-athletes and the athletics department," Interim Director of Athletics Kathy Twist said. "As a former student-athlete, I recognize how important it is to be connected with my alma mater. We want our former student-athletes to feel the exact same way."
Membership benefits include discounted game tickets, access to Letterwinners Association apparel, a 10 percent discount on all apparel at the UB Team Shop as well as valuable networking opportunities. The Block B Letterwinners Association has an exclusive group on the UB Career Connector Network unifying all former student athletes with current student-athletes in an online portal.
"UB has not only afforded me a great education, but has become a second home," former UB basketball All-American Turner Battle said. "It is an honor for me to give back to the university that gave me a great opportunity."
