Posted by Senior Matthew Carrigan on May 17, 2016
There’s nothing like the thrill of kicking back and binge-watching your new favorite series. If you love that feeling, check out the Binghamton Buzz, a web series with periodic episodes that highlight different aspects of student life at Binghamton. With topics ranging from greenhouse exploration to Valentine’s Day with Baxter, here are some of the funniest Binghamton Buzz moments out there.
1. Meet Trey
Video overview: What good is watching your favorite Binghamton video series when you don't know your host? Sometimes called the “Jimmy Fallon of Binghamton," Buzz host Trey Santiago shows a couple of audition videos that earned him this prestigious title.
2. Trey Runs for President
Video overview: Would you vote Trey for president? With election season in full swing, Trey looks to a local politician for some advice about running for Commander in Chief. He learns the basics of campaigning, and even gets to speak to some Binghamton residents about political issues.
3. Random Acts of Kindness
Video overview: It’s hard not to smile when you see somebody do something nice... like giving an avocado to an unsuspecting student? This Buzz video shows Trey performing random acts of kindness for students around campus, and inspiring them to pay it forward.
4. Running with the President
Video overview: They say celebrities can have a rough exterior, but our very own President Harvey Stenger defies that stereotype. Check out “Running with the President” to see Trey join the president for his morning run, bringing only his sense of humor. (Interested in joining the president’s running club?

5. Victory Dance
Video overview: Trey helps students celebrate the end of the semester by asking them to show off their favorite victory dance. Sometimes, dancing is the best way to manage stress.
6. Trey Gets Tropical
Video overview: Did you know Binghamton has a greenhouse? In this video, Trey learns all about how students maintain the plants.
7. Baxter Loves (B) U
Video overview: This Buzz video doesn’t have Trey, but it does feature Baxter -- who is almost as good a host. Binghamton's mascot helps raise campus spirits as he distributes Valentines to students.
8. Bubble Mania
Video overview: Sometimes Bearcats just need to let off some stress. Bubble soccer lets them do just that -- and maybe even roll around a little bit, too.
9. Throwback Thursday
Video overview: Take a trip down memory lane as students look at old pictures of campus buildings and try to identify them. Hear what students have to say about #throwbackthursday two years ago, before it became an Internet phenomenon.
10. Club Crawl
Video overview: There's no shortage of activities here at Binghamton. Guest host Arielle spends the day juggling her time with different clubs (pun intended).
11. Harlem Shake Headache
Video overview: It may be called the Harlem Shake, but it sure took Binghamton with force. Check out this video to see the lecture hall erupt with spirit, costumes and energy.
Bonus: Bloopers Reel!
Video overview: Even Trey thinks his videos are funny! Check out this compilation of the best (and worst) bloopers from the Binghamton Buzz.
