“You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, who had ever been alive.”

How 'goblin mode' became Oxford's word of the year

The slang term means "behavior which is unapologetically self-indulgent, lazy, slovenly, or greedy, typically in a way that rejects social norms." It was the landslide pick in a public vote.

Perhaps, as we say in America, I wanted to find myself. This is an interesting phrase, not current as far as I know in the language of any other people, which certainly does not mean what it says but betrays a nagging suspicion that something has been misplaced. I think now that if I had any intimation that the self I was going to find would turn out to be only the same self from which I had spent so much time in flight, I would have stayed at home. ~James Baldwin

❄️ Because the weather in Western New York can vary greatly within just a few miles, there are times each winter when conditions on campus are favorable for classes to be held as scheduled, but some students, faculty, and staff members may experience difficulty traveling to campus. In those situations, students must communicate with their instructors, faculty with their students, and staff with their supervisors if they cannot travel to campus safely.

📲 In the event a decision is made to cancel classes, Buffalo State will communicate that information through the Buff State Alert system. Buffalo State College students, faculty, and staff members are encouraged to review the college's emergency closings policy and sign up for the Buff State Alert system to receive emergency notifications.

ℹ️ If you have already signed up for Buff State Alert, please take a few moments to verify or update your contact information. https://bit.ly/3X56Mq8

Congratulations to our colleague Dr. John Torrey!

John R. Torrey, PhD, assistant professor of philosophy, was elected to the Board of Ethics for the City of Buffalo. He is the only academic on the board and the only member who has conducted academic research on ethics.

💬 “As someone who engages in public philosophy, this is a wonderful opportunity to further my research, further communicate the value that philosophical thinking has inside of our civic institutions, and make a positive contribution to the City of Buffalo. I’m excited to get to work on behalf of the community!”

Congratulations, Dr. Torrey! Roar on 🐾
