Describe the students at your school.

My classmates come from a variety of different backgrounds, generally have a positve attitude about academia, and beleive having a healthy social life is important to the overall quality of college life.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

It's important to choose a school that has several different ways to get involved culturally, academicaly, socially, and with the community. This gives students room to grow in all of these areas. Finding a healthy balance between these areas is also very important to personal and acedemic developement. It also provides ways to make connections and take on leadership roles that are important for life beyond college.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The Choice about where to go to school is tough. I had to choose between polar opposite schools with similarly ranking programs, and it was very tough. The best choice is to make desicions of schools based on as much data and money comparisons as you can make. To make the most out of the college experience, involvement is key. If you get involved with clubs, you learn about topics which don't get taught until junor and senior years. Thus, involvment helps you learn more, and improves GPA, as well as networking in the future.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who cant deal with large lecture classrooms for the first two years.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

go with your gut in making your decision and make the most out of that decision. think only positives and dont pack your entire room into your car and take it to college with you, it will be a pain and a hassle and chances are half the things you pack tou will never use.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are all over the spectrum because there are so many people attending there. The majority of my classmates are hard workers, while others maintain grades needed but don't strive or dont feel the need to excel. My classmates are also very friendly and I'm glad I have gotten to know them.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

In order to find the right college for yourself, or as a parent, is to visit the campus and make sure the person attending the college can see themselves being comfortable at that college. Going to the most expensive school just because it costs the most doesn't necessarily make it the best school or the best choice, a person has to know what is right for them. Making the most of your college experience is easy, all you have to do is be yourself. There are plenty of activities going on in most colleges so its easy enough to meet people with similar interests. For me, having a balance between school life and my social life is what helps make the most of my college experience. The two go hand in hand, you meet friends in the major you're in, you can then socialize and hang out, and then help eachother with assignments. In order to be successful while still having fun in college is simple; be yourself, and strive to excel.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I had known that there was an amazing gym for free that the students could use whenever they wanted. I also wish I had known that the University at Buffalo would be the perfect pick for me even though it wasn't my first choice.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

It has to feel like home. If wherever you apply to doesn't feel like home, it's probably not worth it. Financial aid is a HUGE consideration as well; but if you can't find a way to be completely you, and surround yourself with people who feel like that as well, you're not going to do well. You have to know that you won't want to return home for Christmas or Spring Break, that you'd rather stay on campus or near it; and if you do leave, that you'll miss it before you even left campus.

What's unique about your campus?

I love how when I first got there for my dance audition in the middle of winter, and it was freezing cold, and covered in snow, I felt at home. When I returned in the fall, and it was warm, green and buzzing with life, it still felt that way.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

I am not getting enough financial aid. I miraculously did last year, but this year I need extra... :( Everything else is wonderful.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

When you receive your acceptance letter, take some time to think about it. Really consider how much each campus offers and compare. Take time to sit and discuss how big of a deal money is when it comes to schools. If you feel like teh more expensive school is teh best fit, don't automatically dismiss it because of the financial strain. If there is any way to make that school work under your current economic limits, do it. You may end up regretting your decision down the line. Most importantly the people you meet at school will really make it all worth while, so don't limit yourself when interacting, look beyond the people that would have fit right in with your friends at high school and talk to some kids that are different than you are used to interacting with, they may end up being your best friends.

What kind of person should attend this school?

somebody who likes to go out, have fun, meet alot of people, and learn. If you don't mind a couple big lectures and not knowing your professors that closely, but still want to get a good education UB is a good choice
