What is your overall opinion of this school?

Personally I think University at Buffalo is too big, with not enough focus on the arts, and an unnecessarily tough curriculum. Most of the time i feel as though i'm floating through my classes and not really gaining any knowledge. My major, media studies, isn't really a big part of the school or its funding.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, the university at Buffalo is pretty good. The school gives a ton of financial aid. Also the school participates in the excelsior scholarship, so many people don't have to pay tuition. However, the wifi on campus can be kind of slow sometimes.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's only been two days but I've enjoyed myself so far. The campus is large but there are shuttles that run regularly to help you get around. Bathrooms, water, and WIFI are everywhere and most buildings have some sort of food or coffee place in them. This is important in the winter, when traveling between buildings kinda sucks. Depending on where your classes are you may not even have to go outside to go between classes because of the extensive network of tunnels and bridges between buildings.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UB is a place where you are guaranteed to learn. There is a strong science and engineering influence here, so you are bound to meet someone just as nerdy as you. Parties are pretty accessible but tend to get shut down by the campus police. It can be annoying, but they have our safety as a priority. It's not hard to make friends here because there are so many people from all walks of life attending this school. Beware of the mountain of snow in the winter! it can be quite difficult to navigate especially if you are not used to this amount of snow. Overall, I don't regret my decision to come to UB. I've made lifelong friends and I know I am receiving a superior education at a great value.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University at Buffalo is a great school for the price. There are many majors to choose from and a variety of classes that you can take. When it comes to academics some courses may be more difficult than others, but thee are so many resources on campus like study/tutoring centers. The social life is decent with a lot of clubs to be apart of but the greek life is not so great. And although we are a Division 1 school are sports teams are no that good and not a lot of people show up for the games, but we do have nice gyms and an olympic pool that any one campus can use. There are always a lot of people for you to meet on campus and there is a lot of diversity because of all the international students. Some campus housing is great and the bad places to live at would be Governor's Hall or if you chose to live on South Campus because of the commute to class and tight spaces. The are so many food options at UB you can try something new everyday and you wo't get tired of the food, you can either go to dining halls or swipe a meal at one of the restaurants in the student union. I would recommend this school to anyone that asks as long as they're okay with how cold it gets in Buffalo!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The university of buffalo is a well know school. So, I cant really speak for it but if I would have to present an outlook of buffalo I would say tremendous things. First buffalo does have its cons too, just like any other school. But the experience you can have by meeting new friends and developing long time relations, cant be beat from other schools. University of Buffalo is a place for students to develop a bright future and contain all the information that is accessible. In retrospect, I am Jehad Zatar, coming from a family with financial needs and I believe this school it meant to be for me and maybe others who struggle finding friends and need help paying for college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am an alumnus and a current student. I exclusively commute to UB, since I am from the area. Overall, UB is a great school and offers excellence to those who are willing to work for it. The Buffalo area is close to attractions such as Niagara Falls, numerous wineries, and live music. There is something for everyone at the University at Buffalo.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great party school, not the brightest students have gotten in and have done well. Overall, everyone takes things very relax and when exams come people rely on each other to do well. I attended there for 2 years before I changed because I was having too much fun and not gaining enough knowledge

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UB gives students the opportunity to challenge themselves. Since UB is such a huge and diverse campus, students can learn so much outside the classroom and always find ways to keep occupied. UB keeps students involved with a variety of events, clubs and organizations.
