    school sucks. getting a degree here is a joke. only came here to get rid of gen eds and transferred out like everyone else. very cheap and very "ratchet" school. they serve prison food, student life is lame, party scene is great but parties should not be your deciding factor when choosing schools. so easy to get a's here, pick a different school if you actually want to be challenged and learn something for your money. if you're going for teaching, fashion and... maybe the arts then this is a school for you. other than that do not go here! choose a different school, this school sucks so much it's insane. plus it's comical that they would price everything so high, buffalo state cannot manage their finances and accept practically anyone who barely made it through highschool. they "overbooked" so many freshman and made some live at another campus because they're greedy and just want your money; they will take advantage of you. academic atmosphere is almost non-existent, nobody takes it seriously and you can barely study/study until the last minute and still get an "a". do not come here, i'm not a disgruntled student who didn't go out and who didn't have friends because i had a lot of great friends here and i tried everything this school has to offer but this school sucks. the school i transferred too now has so much more legit opportunity, better student life, way better food for the same price, is accredited and is challenging. all of which i did not get at buffalo state. so save yourself some money and don't waste your time with this school.

    Do all your homework and reading assigned. Grades matter, so don't try to just breeze through everything. Also make friends with other students in your classes and major.

    Always keep an open mind because college is where you come to learn and grow with so many different individuals around you. Never ever let someone or something come in the way of your education, even if it is partying or just having fun, remember the primary reason you are here in the first place. It is all worth it at the end. Also be prepared there is something's that you will definitely not like.

    I would go over everything you need or graduation every semester so you never fall behind (don't always rely on your adviser)!
