University at Buffalo Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (18)
I enjoyed my experience at the University at Buffalo. As someone who is now pursuing her masters at NYU, I appreciated having had a traditional campus experience. It was a huge university and an institution that is constantly looking to improve its facilities and overall educational environment.
I attended the University of Arizona as a non-traditional transfer student. As a young military spouse, I had moved between 3 states in 2 years and had many challenges trying to stay in school. The University of Arizona was so accommodating even before matriculating as a student with an advisor for my desired major responding to a multitude of questions and even meeting with me during the semester. Once a became an official student, my major specific courses were intensive yet practical in the subject matter and well paced. One of the biggest benefits U of A offers is the emphasis in research that you get through your education which really sets you apart in pursuing post-graduate education and/or employment. Our instructors at the U of A are leaders in the field and are often in the middle of managing their own meaningful research studies where interested students are invited to volunteer or work for the studies. My program, in particularly, offered opportunities to be involved in the community and receive mentorship from students farther along in the program as well as from our faculty who had open door policies. U of A places a high value on the quality of your education and produces many benefits to make the experience successful including free tutoring in a wealth of subjects, de-stress activities during finals weeks such as free chair massages, many seminars and speaking events of world leaders and a variety of fields, free movies, and networking opportunities. The primary causes of any negative experiences I encountered were related to the very large class sizes of undergraduate general education courses such as first-year physics or biochemistry. Due to the sheer sizes of these courses, it was difficult to communicate with instructors and obtain help with specifics during the semester. Now several years after my graduation, I am incredibly thankful I attended U of A as I have been extremely prepared for my field and was very competitive getting into my dream graduate program. I intend to start my doctorate program this upcoming fall and know that I have an excellent foundation and research emphasis to succeed thanks to the experiences from U of A.

UB provided me with a well rounded architecture education. I feel confident in my internships as well as moving forward in my graduate career. The facilities and services provided are far better than other schools I looked at. They get visiting speakers and professors from all over the world with all sorts of different interests and backgrounds.

I loved my school. The teachers were great. You could be a number or be super involved and it was up to you. The campus was fun and I made great friends. they even helped with internships and job placement
I really enjoyed my college for, especially for the a field that uses computer. They had a great technology department/wing and I it was awesome to be able to learn about something I enjoy
Great resources, good professors, but classes are large so don't expect much individualized attention unless you actively seek it.
