3.34 Average Rating
Buffalo State College has six different schools that offer a large selection of majors. The schools are the School of Arts and Humanities, the School of Education, the School of Natural and Social Sciences, the School of the Professions, Graduate School,and University College. Do you research and i am sure you will find majors and minors that fix you.

Whether you dorm or live at home, get involved on campus! The best way to make the most of your college experience is to try something new, you never know, you just might like it. Also, don't be afraid to talk to your teachers and ask questions, it's your grade, don't be too cool to do well. Teachers at Buff State have designated office hours and they love when students stop by with questions or comments about class. Make sure to get your financial aide information taken care of quickly because it may put a hold on your account that could delay registration for classes.
Claire from Amherst, NY
Make sure you get everything filled out and sent in as soon as you decide you will attend. It makes everything go faster and easier, and you won't feel a sense of panic that you are missing something. Also, don't be afraid to email advisers, Admissions, Financial Aid, etc., because all the information you get can be confusing, and they're there to help! Everyone is very nice and can clear up any confusion easily.
Deirdre from Baldwinsville, NY
Remember that just because this is a SUNY school, doesn't mean you're automatically accepted. Only about 42% of students get into Buffalo State each year that apply, so make sure you still do your best on your application! (:
Mandi from Sodus, NY
I suggest that prospective students find out who their academic advisor is and to keep in contact with them. Prospective students should definitely make sure that they register for classes as early as possible because finding and registering for courses is very tedious at times and becomes more difficult the longer they wait. Prospective students need to always make sure that they know the office hours of each of their professors so they can meet with them with any problems or difficulties they have concerning their studies.
Richard from Buffalo, NY
My tip for prospective students is to not let your dorm room consume you. I know at first it might seem like those four walls are the safest place for you to be because your in a new place with new people and all you really want to do is go home to your family so you put your guard up. But listen if you stick with this mentality then what was really the point of you choosing the campus life at all. The way I see it campus life is like dating, at first you have that well...I don't know feeling but then later on as you get to know that person you put your shield down, wave the white flag and put yourself out there. Of course you could possibly get hurt but that's what life is about. Buffalo State as well as Buffalo in general has so much to offer so get out there and get to know it!
