WHAT I LIKED

University at Buffalo has so many undergraduate major choices and is committed to bringing the students together. There are a variety of resources that every student can utilize in order to improve their success here.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Due to COVID-19 and the labor shortage, there are many food places that are still closed. Also, my dorm building (Richmond) contains only Freshmen and the fire alarms go off pretty often; sometimes in the middle of the night.

WHAT I LIKED

Almost everything about UB is perfect, so I'm going to focus on the one thing that isn't, and that is academic advising. They only have a few for every school; one advisor could have thousands of students, so they are almost never available. There are some student resources available to combat this but, they are not widely advertised.

WHAT I LIKED

The food here is the best out of all the SUNY. The music theatre and theatre performance programs are amazing programs and prepare you for the future as a performer.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Academic advising is hard to reach sometimes.

WHAT I LIKED

The University at Buffalo does a lot in order to help students. There are a wide variety of services and clubs and opportunities available. Along with that though, there are many problems that any company would have. Unfortunately, there are many things that ought to be mentioned to beginning freshmen and any grade student that are never brought up unless the student specifically asks about them. In my experience, I had no idea that we could drop classes during the semester and not change the label of full/part-time student until after I had problems in classes and was failing (too late). I had to figure a lot out on my own, and it seemed that advisors were not always 100% happy to go out of their way and help a troubled student. Sometimes blunt and straight-forward is necessary, but when it's highly obvious that a student is suffering through failing grade after grade, something should be changed. If advisors can't recognize that, then it's on them not on the student.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Ask all of the questions you need to. Push with advisors and make sure they listen to you. Don't be pushed around just because you're new or don't know things. Make sure that you're told exactly what you need to know in order to do what you need to do.

WHAT I LIKED

A very large university with every type of person. There are a lot of fun places to go shopping, eat, or have a fun time off-campus. Locals are very passionate about the area.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The food is not great. There are only a couple of good places to eat, but they get repetitive. The meal times are not great, especially considering they end at 8 pm and there is nowhere to eat after that time.
