3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The are some expensive places nearby, but there is a lot of variety that keep options open.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: I have had no problems with the administration or the level of strictness.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It was very easy, I got the aid that I needed.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: I havent been to a lot of parties, nor I want to.. Is it crazy and daunting. But the ones I went, it involved a lot of alcohol and dancing.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I like how they set up the system of paying everything with your id, I dont have to carry extra cash or credit card when I go out. Tax free when you use campus cash!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I like the social atmosphere in dorms, having your door open means meeting new friends and being open to other. However, two showers seem like too little to work with for 24 girls, but everything works out, there was barely conflict in using the bathroom among us. I like how the laundry room is situated right on the first floor, it is organized and cleaned everyday. Another perks is the tables laid out for studying, i was able to do group work and hang out with friends on weekends. The housing process was easy, at the same time, it was daunting. Due to the random lottery picking, one can end up with a larger number meaning they get to choose last. Most of the time, last is the worst because all the prefer rooms are taken.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing like sweet home is great for its cost, and outdoor poor, equip with a nice size gym. you get your own bathroom but shares a kitchen.

4 College Freshman

Administration: There are a good amount of workshops for freshman to take and participate in. However, the RA are usually lenient toward their floor and is cool with most stuff.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: You need to accept financial aid fast if you need them, once rejected, it is a hassle to try to get back those loans.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are many options when it comes to food, one day I can be eating sushi, another I am eating Mexican cuisines. The only thing I dont like about meal plan, is that there is a set time for each meal, students have different class schedule, if they have class both during breakfast and lunch time, they are forced to spend dining during non meal times, and usually led to unspended meals for that week. And I usually dont use all $8 in one meal, so is frustrating the rest of the money is going down the drain.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: All of the STEM majors are great to choose from .

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are many opportunities for competitive internships.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Everyday suburbia, the biggest thing is the school. It is a huge district and it shows.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Just your average everyday New Yorkers, many from New York City, and Long Island. Very few from out of state. A lot form overseas.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: They look out for you. There are plenty of services available and the police force have a no nonsense attitude.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: They are bad news, often getting in trouble Not worth it.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Recently became division I, it shows

3 College Sophomore

Administration: They have a fair system.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: My problem is that they did not offer many options. I have no job and my parents are wealthy but will not pay for college. I am looking for help to pay for my grad school but the process has not given me many options or resources.

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.
