What Students Are Saying

3.34 Average Rating
Buffalo state college is a very friendly and unified place. Great place to meet new people and recieve your education. Also, they have multiple resources to help students.
Jasmond from Liverpool, NY
Buffalo State College, in a nutshell, is a diamond in a rough. The school right now is underconstruction and in the process of being updated and upgraded. But aside from the eye sores of the construction sites I would rate Buffalo State a solid 4.
