What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University at Buffalo is a great school for someone who wants the feel of a big school, but also a close knit school. The athletics have really been improved over the last couple years, winning multiple championships and going to the NCAA tournament in both men and women's basketball and bowls for football. Our spring and fall fest have brought some amazing artists, such as Lil Baby, Big Sean, Rae Sremmurd, Ashanti, Tinashe, Young Ma, and more. Even our guest distinguished speakers have been very cool, we have had former president Barack Obama, Malala Yousafzai, Jesse Williams, Laverne Cox and many more. There are also many clubs that students can join, and many fun events offered on campus during the school year. Now for academics, the class sizes can range from pretty small to huge. Basic classes such as Chemistry 101 or Physics 101 can have almost 400 students within the class, but what I really like what the university does is that they have recitations accompanied with these classes. A recitation is a set class time (outside of lecture) where a group of about 20 students get time with a TA, and can ask questions on certain topics and receive extra help. This was very helpful during my freshman year of college because I was not used to the big class sizes yet, so by setting time aside to get that one on one feeling of help was absolutely needed. I would say though that some professors are hit or miss. Most professors really care about their students and willing to answer any questions to help the students succeed, but some professors here you can tell are just there for the research and just jump through their lectures and answer questions very vaguely. Also, the amount of online courses offered not only in the fall, but also the winter and summer sessions to help students get ahead is tremendous. It was really nice during the winter or summer that if I want to take an online course I could do so in the comfort of my home. Now, I've heard that SUNY Buffalo is known to be best SUNY school for food, but to me the food gets very repetitive and I easily get tired of it, but some of my other friends disagree. I will say though there are tons of food places on campus to try out, and a bunch very close off campus that are very good. The university also offers the stampede bus to go to the mall or grocery store, and even to Niagara Falls. I really like UB, especially for the cost and home type feeling, I think others will enjoy it as well. My best advice is to make your college experience how you want to make it, academics should always come first, but also don't forget that fun and enjoyment is definitely needed, and it's okay to take a study break and enjoy the best four years of your early adulthood.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University at Buffalo is a great school for people who may think about enrolling here. There are may opportunities that can be gained from being apart of the buffalo community. The people at this school are very helpful and like to engage in as many activities and service projects as they can. The University at Buffalo also lives for sports. All of the staff and students love to watch all of the division 1 sports in action.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great college with so many opportunities to take advantage of. You just need eager and motivated to take advantage of those opportunities. Also their EOP program is amazing and give students that come from low income family and students without the best grades an actual chance to go to a great school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Unless you’re an engineering or a computer science major or an athlete who would like to save on tuition and truly enjoys winter, DO NOT attend this university. Everyone else seems to have little value to UB. Everyone else is left to figure out the complexity of of today’s college experience on their own. UB claims to have an abundance of resources and advertises them as if students can access medical care with the snap of a finger or find a place to belong immediately. Although this university has resources, most of them are only available for a short period of time. Many students transfer out during their freshman year because it is incredibly difficult to build bonds with others if you’re not a heavy partier, drinker, or smoker. For those of us who spend our weeknights studying and weekends pursuing other hobbies, I would attend another university. There are so many terrible incidents that UB is currently keeping under wraps. My mental health declined immensely, and the resources that they offered barely helped. I would never wish this on anyone. Pick up your grades. Save up your money. Attend a school that actually cares about their students. Fortunately, I was able to get out despite the terrible mental health I fell into. I am currently a student at Columbia University, and I could not be any happier. Think wisely before making that four year commitment. I hope this helps.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I loved it but it was expensive. The classes were too big and I wish the classes were smaller. It didnt help me learn as much in the large lecture rooms. The clubs on campus and especially the food was good. The housing on campus was too expensive.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, the University at Buffalo is a great school. The campus and environment is overall very safe and clean. People are very welcoming and mind their own business. There are so many clubs for just about every occasion and activity so you are bound to find something you like. Greek life is also pretty prevalent for those interested. The culture is very diverse and students have a very patriotic spirit about the school. Regarding academics, classrooms are clean and fully equipped. Professors try to teach to their best ability and meet with students who ask for additional help. Our school is well known for their biology and business program. But in general, all curriculums are pretty advanced and prepare students for whichever degree they pursue.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University at Buffalo is a great public college to attend. There is so much diversity and there are a lot of ways you can get involved around the campus. The residence halls are okay for a public school and there are a lot of good food options. This school has great staff and a lot of resources to help you succeed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoy the school a lot, the the people are welcoming. There are a good amount of people involved in Greek life but it's not something you have to do. The organizations are very welcoming and the school takes diversity seriously. I've seen many protests on campus, one I participated in was so they can add more funds to a program I was in. The only negative I would have about the school is the community bathrooms in the freshman housing could be cleaner.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University at Buffalo is one of the best colleges locally in Western New York in my opinion. At UB you have the chance to meet other students around the world with different values and beliefs. Diversity is important today because of the different perspectives and growing productivity associated with it. At such a large campus there are a variety of clubs, sports, and other activities to get involved in and meet new people. In addition, UB has many services that they offer to encourage personal development during our years at college. Also, there are plenty of restaurants and shops on campus with a variety of options to never get tired of eating the same thing. Overall, UB is making the college experience possible, with offering their many services to us.
