What is your overall opinion of this school?

Its a great school. The diversity is beautiful and some people are nice. I just wish there could be more financial aid. The professors are really good and explain well. The transport system is very convenient from south to north campus. I like how all the classroom buildings are connected so students can avoid the cold, and the indoors are very well warmed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion is very good. As a freshman currently, my first semester had great, knowledgeable and enthusiastic professors. Everyone, even campus workers are super kind and friendly. Everyone is very polite and helpful and we have a very diverse campus. If you dorm, everything is very convenient, safe and easy to get around for such a large campus. Unfortunately, as a graphic design major I do not see my self growing there and am considering transferring or staying and pursuing a business management degree.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is what you make of it. No hand-holding you just become another body in the classroom. Professors do not care to know your name or provide great classes. It is heavily weighted on self-study. Students are not the best, just hope to get the average so the curve helps.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University at Buffalo has more than enough residence halls and five campus apartment communities with a lot of other accommodations. What makes a university life is both the on-campus and off-campus living and it is easier to get to class, study and meet new people. Our residential dining centers, food courts, food trucks and snack shops that serve very delicious food which meets everyone's test.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University at Buffalo offers a variety of opportunities to explore and partake in events. Whether it is club activities, off-campus trips, games or even a dining hall event; no one is ever alone. The amount of spirit in each student is phenomenal. The faculty is welcoming which makes it easier to reach for help. Most importantly, the endless amount of resources results in no questions left unanswered. I am proud to support the Buffalo Bulls.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University at Buffalo is a well recommended institution by many people. Personally it just wasn’t a great fit for me. I am transferring out of the university after only one semester there because it just wasn’t an atmosphere that I am used to nor that I feel comfortable in. I come from a small town out in the country so UB was definitely a culture shock that I never adjusted too. I did make a few friends but I just never felt super comfortable or like I belonged.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I make the best of it. It’s alright, but I’m a very artistic person, and the arts have close to no funding here, although I think that the arts always get the lower end of the funding in most schools. I wish that there were more opportunities for theatre/film studies/photography students in terms of equipment and mentorship from professors.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This school has very good value considering its price, but definitely is not for everyone. Coming from a small, close-knit town, I was excited to attend a large University where I would have the opportunity to meet tons of new people. Instead, I do not feel at home or like I belong here because everyone keeps to themselves and you have to put in a great amount of effort to connect with people. It's not hard to make friends and find people similar to you, but there is no community feeling. There is little to no school pride; you will see people wearing apparel but that's about it. Sports games are not big exciting events that everyone goes to, which is unexpected for such a big school. The University only cares about the football and basketball teams, and although they are very good, it's hard to feel prideful and involved at games. There are cheers and a large student section, but games are long and boring and even if you go with friends it feels like you are in a crowd of strangers, cheering for strangers. There are endless clubs and activities to join, which definitely makes it easier to make connections, but most of them are student-run with almost no assistance from the school. There are many events going around campus but not many people go to them. It's not too hard to find something to do on weekends, because frats or sororities usually have parties or you can go out to clubs. However, parties are just groups of people who stand around with red solo cups in their hand talking to their friends. Parties can be fun and people dance but most of the time no one really knows/talks to each other and nothing too memorable really happens at them. After hearing from other friends at other colleges, they all can't say enough positive things about why they love their school. I haven't met anyone at UB who feels that way- no one here LOVES being here. It just seems like everyone is here simply to graduate with a degree and without debt. UB is definitely a smart choice to get the most for the least price, but so far it is not the college experience I was hoping for.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Buffalo is a very diverse school with a populated amount of student body. Although I have not yet been reviewed or accepted by the University, hopefully the teachers will give me some space for consideration. It is my dream college for a good reason, since it's specialized in majors that I want to study. I'm really looking forward to my future admission in UBuff!
