4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There is a North and South campus at UB, and although I was lucky enough to live on North within a good distance of my classes, some kids have to live on south and take a 15 minute bus ride every day. Besides this, there are a lot of options when considering places to study, eat, hang out, or just walk to. Compared to other schools it is indeed "cheap", however UB tends to charge students for things they will never use (athletic fees, "college" fee). Some of the hours and rules they enforce are a bit strange, however there is a lot to do and because it is so big there are always new people to meet and make friends with. The housing process was a pain, and they really want to keep you living on campus for all four years, however it is very expensive to live in the residence halls or on campus apartments.

Greek Life: I am not involved in Greek life, and can only speak through experience interacting with them and going to a few parties. They are a bit snobbish and cliquey at times, but this could be said about any clubs or sports teams on campus as well. For the most part no one views you differently if you are or are not a part of Greek life.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletic facilities on campus are great. There is a lot of opportunity to get active. However, the varsity sports teams are not supported by the student population as much as they could be; this is because we are not the greatest at sports.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school is very diverse and I really appreciate meeting people from different cultures.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It's generally clean and most of the times its safe as well.

Campus Housing: I am doing good in dorms but the noise is annoying.

Greek Life: The parties are awesome and they seem to have a general bond together.

Athletics: I am currently going to join the gymnastics and archery club for the spring semester. I wish to join dance, ice skating, swimming, and gymnastics for next semester as well. Lots of options!

Overall Experience: I honestly like the school it's been very good. The fees are so expensive and I was charged with lots of things that i was not aware of. So far, I honestly love the campus and housing.

Diversity: I'm sorry to say it but Buffalo has serious race issues. You would think that based off of the amount of International students here people would be more accepting. Quite the opposite. Its mainly the native buffalonians/upstate kids that make being a minority here hard because they're so sheltered and dont know anything about race since they're all white and republican. A lot of them are VERY ignorant and don't really give a crap about what they say in front of people, hurtful or not. They all need a reality check fast. I have never received more ignorance/racism about my race (African-Americans) or Asians, Indians, Hispanics, basically anybody who's not white and republican.

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus for most of the time. There are poles where you can press a button to call the UB campus police as well which make me feel safer. I would say North Campus is safer than South campus because there are more people walking around.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Courses and the amount of courses to choose from are endless. Many of the courses include passionate teachers which makes for a great class. Professors are good at what they teach. Classes are taken in lecture halls and rooms. Some of the rooms are small and the lecture halls feel stuffy as well. The desk space in lecture halls on South campus is something they can work on.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: UBBullseye is amazing for trying to find a job/internship on and off campus. Even nationwide jobs are included in the search bar. I found on campus jobs through this and has helped me to become involved on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is so convenient and one of the best options for a full-time student. If you work on campus and study here as well, I'd recommend dorming or looking into the on-campus apartments. If you live out of the campus, I think having a car is essential to avoid wasting time with public transportation. Also, it's a nice community of students and makes more easy access to making new friends.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is not a huge part of UB partly because school owned fraternity houses are not a thing here. Most associate the Greek community with the parties they throw and are indifferent about Greek life.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: UB's Athletics is top notch. The Alumni Arena is where the biggest gym of the school is located as well as the sporting events. Our teams are in the first division and it's always a fun time when attending sports games.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: University at Buffalo is perfect for the major that I am intended into. The Exercise Science major and the Pre-PT and OT programs are also amazing as well. The opportunities in this field are endless and UB makes it approachable for students.

Campus Housing: the quality of the dorms really depends on how high up you are selected in the lottery system

Party Scene: Besides the first few weeks of the semester and finals week, there aren't A TON of parties unless you are in a frat/sorority or if you know a lot of people. However, most friday and saturday nights in the dorms there is some stuff going on. There is a number you can call if you need a van to bring you somewhere. The bus also runs until 3am on friday and saturday nights.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Most parties are either in the off campus apartments/villas and the houses by south campus.

4 College Freshman

Academics: There are so many classes offered that it's easy to fill your schedule with interesting stuff that fulfills requirements.

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.
