2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It's bad because everything around here closes early. Some restaurants close at 9 or 10pm for some people thats really early especially if they aren't done with class until 9:30 or 9:45pm. It kind of expensive especially if you order everyday.

3 College Freshman

Administration: It's not really strict to be honest. Most things are lenient if you get along and respect the RAs they don't really seem to mind what you're doing. The drinking and doing drugs are what they're really strict about.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial aid was a easy process. But the one problem would be work study. There aren't enough jobs for every student to get a job. I signed up for work study during the first semester and still haven't gotten a call to work yet. Being an out of state student it makes it difficult to find a job that's close by so having a work study can help me make and save my money for when I need it. Get financial aid done as quickly as possible.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I think we should have a menu that way everyone knows the meal of the day. The only thing I basically eat are the burgers, the chicken nuggets/tenders but it's only served on weekends, and when we have omelet day. We do not have enough options/variety of food available on campus and it's kind of expensive and fatting ordering food everyday.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: the housing on campus is really great. I like living on campus. Everything is close by for classes, if want to eat food, or just going to the library. The buildings are fairly close to one another. Since the campus is small almost everyone knows each other. If you want to make friends it's easy to do that around here. The only thing I'm not so fond of is the pricing of the dorms. I feel like it should be cheaper than it actually is but overall I enjoy being on campus

2 College Junior

Athletics: We don't value the athletic life much but the athletes seem to all enjoy being a student athlete. I have been to a few games and the stands are never filled.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My professors take a personal interest in my success and makes sure they provide me with the best help to make it.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Coming from New York City, the price for off-campus housing in Buffalo is very affordable but the landlords could be nicer sometimes and I do not like my year long contract.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Some places offer student discounts and for the most part the food around the area is decent.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I am in need of extra financial help but the process to obtain aid was definitely smooth and easy.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: I don't party much but collegiate always has good parties. It's expected since there is a mixture of UB students and others.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: You can relax at the Cyber, do homework or watch TV while eating their better quality food. The curly fries are pretty good and offered at a decent price.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: The only one within walking distance is Denny's... Not great but something to do when you're bored at one in the morning

3 College Student

Administration: My first semester I had huge issues with noise levels of my suitemates and it was relatively difficult to get help from RAs to get them to quiet down and stay quiet.

4 College Student

Scholarships: Everyone gets some sort of scholarship as well as grants!

3 College Student

Party Scene: No huge parties on campus...they WILL get busted. Better take them elsewhere and let the rest of us non-partiers sleep

3 College Student

Campus Food: The meals are pretty good... Not fantastic but good for the price.

5 College Student

Campus Housing: Living in Canavan for my first year at Daemen was awesome! The only difficulty is that you live with 4 other people (2 in one room and three in another) and if you don't get along with your suite mates...things can get pretty awkward. Thankfully the RAs are super helpful to assist in any ways they can!

4 College Freshman

Athletics: i dont care for athletics but many ppl say they are great here

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I would never chose any other school. Everyone is so nice and caring. Faculty and students are always willing to help and very understanding.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Got offered a job on campus within my first semester. Programs offered here give you the experience needed to work in your field. I am in a smaller major than normal, under 10 people in my program, but I know without a doubt that I will find a job after college. They are really good about helping with that, especially if it's a job in WNY.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus is nice if you can find the roommates to share a place with. There are places from as little as $200/month to $500/month, all still cheaper than living on campus. Public transportation goes everywhere so that is never an issue. Some places are cheaper than others and usually those that are cheaper are not in the best neighborhoods. Even the worst neighborhoods in Buffalo are livable though. I live in University Heights which is supposed to be the worst place to live. It's definitely all college students and very high poverty level families, but most people are friendly and willing to help. Community events are a big thing everywhere in Buffalo. Everyone is friendly and participation is encouraged. Each street in University Heights has a community garden project. In the 3 years I have lived here there has been one instance where safety was a concern, and the police responded so quickly that I feel any potential threat is nothing. I would not reccommend walking around late at night and doing suspicious things though, cops are everywhere and Buffalo is starting to really crack down on underage drinking. Basically if you don't party super hard and you are over 21, you should never have any issue living off campus.

Also, landlords don't run credit checks for most places so students can easily find a place.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: So many places within walking distance. Dennys across the street (24 hours), Manhattan Bagel is like a block away, there is an Indian place and few other dining locations within walking distance.

Buses come every 15-20 minutes at the main street entrance to campus. These take you to the metro station where you can transfer to any bus or use the subway to get virtually anywhere in the buffalo area. Really food options are unlimited as long as you are willing to spend the $5 on a day pass for the metro or have a car.

Weekends have free buses that go to the mall. There is a Wegmans right next door that offers a HUGE variety of meal options, both prepared and wholesale.

Basically you could eat at a different location every day for an entire semester and never have the same thing twice.

5 College Freshman

Administration: They are very concerned with the well being of each and every student. Not only are there free counceling sessions for anyone who needs them, but there are people available to help with studying and reinforcing materials. Parking passes are technically required, but I went an entire semester without one and had nothing happen. I have also parked in handicapped spaces many times. The only time this is an issue is when there are no handicap spaces for people who actually need them. Since there aren't many people on campus who use them, I have yet to see anyone get in trouble for this.

There are generally no issues on campus whatsoever. I cannot think of a single time administration has done something that negatively affected anyone on campus. Even if for some reason there is something wrong, someone finds you in the class you are in and informs you. There is definitely an effort to fix a problem without punishment.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Not only did they give me all the financial aid I needed, but they gave me an $8,000 scholarship. I am by no means the ideal student; I am older than most and transferred in, so I was extremely surprised when I saw how big of a scholarship I got. Especially since the cost of tuition is less than $30k a year!

There is also a program that allows students to use their financial aid to buy books in the bookstore. This is extremely helpful for anyone who relies on financial aid to purchase books.

Another thing worth mentioning is how friendly and helpful the financial aid staff is. I have gone into their offices a few times with questions about increased income affecting my financial aid. They are always able to answer any questions and seem very friendly. The only instance where they didn't have a definite answer, they were able to direct me to someone who did.
