4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I don't really have much to say. Class lectures are big but you get used to it, classes get smaller as you specialize more.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: You have to be a competitive student grades wise to get internships or do research, which can hurt some people.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have no experience with sexual assault stuff but I've never felt unsafe on campus, even walking back to my dorm at 1 in the morning.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I didn't like my floor the first year but I really liked my room, no complaints.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: UB is a great school to go to! People are friendly if you go out of your way to meet them. I would advise getting involved in clubs asap otherwise you'll have difficulty meeting people

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors that i have encountered are some of the best. They want to help me and are passionate about what they are teaching me. They make sure to keep the class focused and interested.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The school has a career center as well as career fairs that help students find a career path after they graduate UB.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: The school has their own University police that you can call 24/7 when in trouble. We also have blue poles with buttons all around campus that you can use if you don't feel safe and want an police officer to walk you back to where you need to go.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek like is a great opportunity for students to make connections. Greeks and non-Greeks get along great and are friendly. Many Greek have non-Greek friends.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Student involvement is huge at my school. Students attend all types of games such as basketball, football, etc. There is a lot of school spirit and support that the athletic teams get from us students as well as people in the Buffalo community, who come to campus to watch the games.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Coming to UB was one of the best decisions I have ever made. If having to start all over again, I would definitely choose this school again. This school has given me so many opportunities to grow and learn, not just academically but personally. I've learned so much from my classes, my friends and my overall environment. My school is the largest state school in New York. It is a very diverse school with international students from all over the world. There is always something to do and you will never be bored. One thing that has truly affected me are the connections I have made with other students as well as my professors. I've never met such caring and passionate professors who truly want to help me, not just because it is their job. And I have never made such non-judgemental friends over the past three years at this school. I am now entering my fourth year with excitement for all the new experiences to be made as well as the fear of overcoming the obstacles my courses will bring me. But overall, I come into this semester with my head up and a smile on my face because I am back at the school that has given me so much to look forward to.

Health & Safety: I get more alerts about robbery and indecent exposure than I would like.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I am using my degree to potentially own my own garden center one day. I already have an Associates Degree in the Individual Studies of Horticulture and I figured a Bachelor's of Business Administration would be an excellent asset to my arsenal of knowledge.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I personally don't like the selection process as to determining if someone would be a good fit for the fraternity or sorority.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love the school. From my classmates that I've become friends with, to the layout of North Campus...I just love the school. The friends that I have made at the school have given me some awesome memories. From studying in the library, to having lunch in the student union, I have nothing but love for those memories.

Drug Safety: It's out there just beware.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: If you feel like you're going to fail a class just drop it. Especially if it's only a pre-req...

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: You need to take advantage of the resources given to you. They won't be waved in your face like high school.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus, but walking back to the dorms at 2am can be scary.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I enjoyed my time living on campus. Moving to the apartments next semester.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: UB has the potential to have a great greek life. They need to get it together....

4 College Junior

Athletics: Our basketball team is great. A lot of people shows up to their games.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My time at UB so far has been great. I'm entering my Junior year therefore I have a lot of experiences to base my review on. The only problem I have with UB is that they over complicate everything. Something that could be resolved with 1 email turns into a 5 emails to 5 different people process.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors can be great, but my particular program doesn't offer a lot of variety. Many of the classes are cut and dry, or won't help me further my direction in my field. I would be taking the same classes if I attended a different school. Sometimes I wish I was in a different program, but I know this is what I want to do for my career, and the cost was too low to pass up. However, class styles are great. Most classes are lectures, which I like because I can take the class at my own pace. Some are in smaller settings, which is nice because then you get to know the other students a lot better.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I don't worry about finding a career in my field coming from this school. It has a great reputation, but I think I would find a job in my field coming from any school. However, I do plan on attending UB for my law degree as well, and I do know that will help get me a job in the future as their law school is quite well known.

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.
