After a month of collecting 3,395 cans and bottles, students at Harvey Austin School in Buffalo are giving back to the community. On Monday, the students presented a 21-year-old woman named Jessie who suffers from reflex sympathetic dystrophy, an incurable neurological pain disorder, with a check to help with medical expenses – including training for a new guide dog.

Tripathi meet with about 350 alum and over 200 other faculty staff and guest Thursday night at the Hotel Lafayette.   He is at the half-way mark of a 20-month, 20-city tour.   He has traveled as far away to Malayisa and back in the U.S. to San Franciso. 

Tripathi said UB has long international ties, well before he became president.
