I love the look of the campus at UB, it is so modern and the perfect size! I love that all the buildings are connected so that you never have to be outside in the terrible weather. Im also quite content with the professors and the classes.


Student at This School - Grad Year 1996

Overall Rating

A lot of majors to choose from, good professors, nice campus except for the cold weather. My most memorable experience is when they engraved my name on the wall of the student union. I can go back to the school 20 years later and will be able to see my name there.
