UB Students Speak Out Against PHEEIA

It’s TRUE. Yesterday, at UB Amherst, a group of students went so far as to embarrass a man wearing a suit!
The sheer impudence of this younger generation. Maybe there’s a way to put some language into the PHEEIA bill that would allow President Simpson to assign detention to these delinquents.
It must be so frustrating for the UB News Center, as they strive so mightily to control the school’s public image that they offer the faculty this handy set of tips on working with reporters.
Did you know, ladies, that for TV interviews you should avoid wearing short skirts? And gentlemen, if you will be representing the university on television, avoid wearing short socks.
And remember: “Mention UB in your remarks, and ask your interviewer to properly identify your affiliation with UB. By the way, we prefer that our institution be referred to as “University at Buffalo” in the first reference with all media and “UB” in subsequent references. Do not refer to the university as “SUNY Buffalo.”
In other words, don’t describe things as they truly are.
