UB is essentially a diverse small friendly community providing a great atmosphere with much to benefit and learn from. The programs as well as courses satisfy my academic endeavor for the pursuit of knowledge. Living on campus is an individualistic adventure for growth and maturity through responsibility.
Brian from Yonkers, NY
I transferred to this school because it was close to home and offered everything a NYC school did without the added expense. The professors are very knowledgeable and helpful, they want you to achieve great things. I am so happy that I was given the opportunity to attend this institution of higher education.
