3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Big universities sometimes are hard to adjust too because the learning environments arent as personal

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Apparently classes are very different from high school, very flexible schedule and a lot more options. Professors are mostly experts in their area of study, some are more approachable some are not. UB has study aboard and many foreign language classes.

Health & Safety: Students have swipe their UB card in order to get in the residence hall, and I often see police by the building door. There are blue light alarms throughout the campus, if any thing happens just press the bottom and campus police will be here within minutes.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in the South Campus residence hall, each floor has 2 RAs to help you if needed. They will tell you if there is a event going on nearby. From my residence hall to the convenience stores are just 5 minutes of walking, but all of my classes take place in the North Campus, it takes 20 minutes of bus ride to travel from the South to the North.

Greek Life: I did not join Greek Life but I could see it's signs when I walk around the campus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My experience at UB is overall pretty good. People I meet, especially those who serves certain position, are very friendly and helpful. Students of UB are very diverse. You could see people from all over the world coming here and they became good friends. However if I were to choose again, I would probably not choose UB. It's not that I don't like something here at UB. It's just UB is too far away from home. I'm kind of homesick and I would probably choose a university that's closer to NYC.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Hundreds of opportunities to be a part of campus life. It's very easy to get an intern since they're practically throw at your face

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: South UB is pretty safe, Buffalo isn't a very threatening city

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I got stuck with a bad bunch but that doesn't mean we didn't work things out; matter of fact it worked out for the better. We all became close still despite our differences

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: seems very interesting but personally i got my own group already

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The gym is always pack but that's understandable due to circumstances of being a big school but intramural sports are what's to enjoy

5 College Sophomore

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

From the overwhelmingly diverse campus culture to the odd architecture, UB takes some getting used to. But nearly all students say they've gotten a lot out of their four (or five, or six) years here, and many simply love the place. There are some institutional problems that get people down: administrative hassles, bland campus food, and rotten parking. The decentralized campus can lead to a diminished feeling of community. And the weather is a challenge to the spirit. But UB's modern facilities and world-class computer network get high marks, and most UB students grow to appreciate the great academics, the friendly people, and Buffalo's high quality of life.

UB has a great college experience waiting, but instead of gently offering it to you, it challenges you to "come and get it." If you're not intimidated by the diversity and the sprawling campus and if you get involved, you'll have an eclectic and inspirational experience. Students say UB is no utopia, but it's a lot of fun. And when it's over, nearly everyone remembers it fondly.
