SUNY at Buffalo State Reviews
Buffalo State offered a 4 year degree without a math requirement. In my day going to college to get a job seemed mercenary. The purpose of further education was to broaden your knowledge which would lead you to becoming a better member of society. As my broadcast major relates to today's job market, unless you are hired right after your internship job opportunities in television are limited to working as a secretary at a college. When I graduated a BA in any subject meant you could be paid more. Now people with BA's hope to keep their minimum wage jobs at a fast food establishment. Today's job market changed as a degree is required for each specific line of work. There are way more secretarial openings if you major in Social Services than if you major in Broadcasting.
I absolutely loved Buffalo State and the Psychology program. It is a wonderful, beautiful campus in the heart of Buffalo NY. The professors were wonderful, the class sizes were small enough to have the individual attention needed to succeed, and it was very affordable for the quality of education received.
The experience as an incoming freshman to SUNY Buffalo State College (BSC) as a nervous one. While all freshmen are nervous with the idea of attending college, being away from ones own home adds to this feeling. The experience at BSC was an excellent one. The faculty and staff offered the support needed to feel comfortable, confident, and more independent. Faculty were open to offer support and extra assistance when needed as students faced challenges in course work. The school offers a varied social groups and opportunities to engage in extracurricular activities that enhances one life and college experience. The experience in participating in student organizations and student government helped me pursue efforts in civic engagement today. This also offered opportunities to meet and create strong lasting friendships with people who had shared values. The school is home to several sororities and fraternities who have been known to offer a great community for some. There are also, various campus program and organizations where students can secure employment to either help support their tuition expenses or earn extra income for living. The off campus experience was just a good. The campus is located in the heart of the city of Buffalo which has multiple attractions for recreation, fun, and learning. There are great Art Museums, restaurants, and other city attraction that are very close to visit. Students can also choose to live off campus, but only recommended after an on campus living experience. There are several off campus housing options available in either apartments or houses that students can rent and share living experience and expenses with peers. All of which are within walking distance or close to public transportation. I highly recommend a visit to this campus for anyone considering a great well rounded education.
They have excellent teachers at Buffalo State College. The facilities are amazing they is always a place to rehearse. The school is closer to Downtown which is where the Professional theatres are. The head of the program is one the most in tune instructors ever. They want you to succeed.
Buffalo State is located in a very safe, beautiful and lively part of Buffalo. The school is very beautiful, diverse and have really great food! Once you go to Buff State you feel at home. This school offers lots of programs, organizations, and opportunities to its students. There are many athletic events, and on campus events as well which is great. The school is very involved in the Buffalo, NY community also.
I Thought it is a good place to be independent and make friends. This is where you decide what you want to do for the rest of your life. Alot of students, change their major. It is good to join clubs and sports.
I think it was a great school. I did not like how it was hard to get specific classes and was forced to go for an extra year because classes were not available when I tried to register.
UB was culturally diverse, with mostly large classes. It, in my experience, was very research centered.
It's a nice small community. Most of the teachers are great. Unfortunately the campus has had some troubles with robbery because of some of the surrounding area.
I loved this college, small class sizes so you can really get all the help you need to learn. They are always doing construction and improving the school as well.
