    May 2023: Aaron Davis

    Our May Spotlight Student, Aaron Davis, hails from Albany, but wasted no time in forming a community here in Buffalo.  In his first year at UB he was already hosting open mic nights at the local Hillel.  Now wrapping up his sophomore year, he continues to be active in the Jewish community, while staying busy with his Sociology/English double major and Spanish minor (and rooting for the Mets!).

    Aaron chose to major in Sociology because he wanted a better understanding of public policy, one informed by empirical sociological evidence on how societies and people function.  He can envision his degree as a stepping stone to work in teaching, public policy, international affairs, or even rabbinical school.

    All best wishes, Aaron, wherever your Sociology degree may take you!
