What Students Are Saying

3.92 Average Rating
a large school with many opportunities (be it academics, socially, etc.)
Mina J from New York, New York
I am satisfied with this school. I got accepted to a couple expensive private colleges and public schools in my state. University at Buffalo is on par, if not, tops all the other schools from a couple UCs to University of Hawaii and even DePaul University in Chicago. It is well funded and well put together: so for anyone considering this school, don't be reluctant to check it out, it is a good school.
