5 College Freshman

Local Area: Buffalo is an amazing city. I spent my first 17 yrs of life there. I know it's a thriving city that has a lot of potential, but it's also a school that's close to where I live that has a legit degree program that I want to study.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: It's a great area to explore especially down elmwood, but when it starts to get cold and the blizzards roll in it stops you from going out.
