Buffalo State College dedicates this page to the Bengals who’ve passed away while enrolled at Buffalo State. Every student contributes in no small measure to the Buffalo State community. Beginning with the 2017-2018 academic year, we list the names of those students who’ve fallen. We hope that this page serves as a place for family, friends, fellow students, faculty, and staff to honor their memory and celebrate their lives.
For the past 21 years, Buffalo State students, faculty, and staff have come together to celebrate the lives and memories of those who have passed away during the last year. This event is a meaningful tradition at Buffalo State that provides a forum to remember those members of our Buffalo State community who are no longer with us. This nondenominational, spiritual celebration honors their lives through music, readings, and the lighting of candles. The name of each Fallen Bengal will be read aloud, followed by the ringing of our memorial bell.
The Celebration of Life Memorial Service is coordinated by the Dean of Students Office and Weigel Wellness Center. If you are aware of a campus member who has passed away since 2021, and if you would like to add their name to the list of remembrances, please e-mail the Student Resource Coordinator at email@example.com with the relevant information.
The 2023 Celebration of Life Memorial Service will take place on Tuesday, April 18, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the Louis P. Ciminelli Recital Hall.
