Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

Academics Rating

I love the class sizes. You don't get the one-on-one with the professors as much as in a smaller school but recitation classes are much smaller and engaging. I'm quite content with the professors and the courses offered at UB.

Student at This School - Grad Year 1996

Academics Rating

The class sizes were not too large, most professors were open and good. The work load varied depending on the department which you were in. I studied two subjects and one department was a little more challenging than the other. I would say you will get a good education at UB.
