Through Conway-Turner’s Twitter account, @BuffStatePrez, followers get a glimpse of interesting nuggets of Buffalo State’s history. From the origins of Buffalo State on the West Side, to shining a spotlight on different programs and when they started, the plan is to send 150 tweets throughout the academic year. 

“Buffalo State has a unique history and place in the Buffalo community,” Conway-Turner said. “As part of our 150th celebration, I wanted to shine a spotlight on what makes us and our history so special. Check it out if you can, and roar on, Bengals!”
