I hardly ever go back to UB so tonight I figured I'd check out the old stomping grounds.





Let's get the brochure shots out of the way first. Hayes Hall clock tower.



The medical library.



Crosby Hall.



Squire Hall.



Ok, maybe we should leave this one out of the brochure.





Dorms of all sizes... short and tall.



The pointy building.



South Campus Metro Rail station.



Inside the station.



I lived here. Back in the day, Northrup Place was pretty swank. This house was by far the crappiest house on the street. Now, it looks pretty much the same as when I lived there but alas, the rest of the street has deteriorated pretty badly.



I lived here too, and quite happily.



St. Joseph's Church.



As the signs indicate, this is Parkside Candy.





Bye, UB!



In Delaware when I was younger, I would live the life obscene
In the spring I had great hunger, I was Brando, I was Dean
Blaspheming booted blue-jeaned baby boy
Oh, how I made them turn their heads
Townie brownie girls, they jumped for joy
Begged me bless them in their beds

In Delaware when I was younger, I would row upon the lake
In the spring I had great hunger, I was Keats, I was Blake
My pimpled pencil pains I'd bring to frogs who sat entranced
My drift dream ditties I would sing
The water strider danced

In Delaware when I was younger, I thought St. Andrew had sufficed
In the spring I had great hunger, I was Buddha, I was Christ
You wicked wise men, where's your wonder?
You Pharisees someday will pay
See my lightning, hear my thunder, I am truth, I know the way

The UB campus is nice. I remember walking around it one time with my dad, when he was showing me where some of his classes were. My mom and dad lived in an ugly-looking apartment or something on Montrose Avenue or somewhere around there after they got married and my dad was still working on his doctorate.

The pillars (Baird Point) are on the North (Amherst) Campus. These were all taken at the South Campus on/around Main Street.

I guess that's what I get for trying to be helpful.

so i guess you don't know what's up with those pillars...i guess that's what i get for asking a question.
I know very well what's up with the pillars, but I'm through responding to rude people.

Is the old Chemistry Department building being reused? When I was going to grad school it was completely abandoned, but still wide open. It provided a wonderful access point into the tunnels underneath the campus.
Tell us (me) about these tunnels and stuff.

There's an honest-to-goodness old-school steam tunnel network connecting most buildings (except the old portables, of course) at the UB South Campus. It's accessible from the basements of most buildings. Your best chance of accessing it is to hit Hayes Hall on a good day, when the door to the basement (next to the elevator on the main floor, IIRC) is unlocked. (Most of the Hayes Hall basement is finished, but unused.)

I've got a few photos floating around, but I've got to scan them first.
