SUNY Buffalo State College Reviews
The best part of Buff State is the diversity. I love how seriously in every one of my classes there's just a total mix of people. Also, some of my professors really make classes as interesting as possible and fun. I loveeee the bookstore Starbucks; it is my happy place. Most students in my classes have honestly been friendly. On the downside, the library is a little weird. It is very broken up and doesn't make sense. In addition, this may sound bad, but there are a lot of older students. It just kind of makes the experience weird having so many middle-aged people mixed in with the young college students. I'm a transfer student so I want to get into the party scene, but being in Buffalo the bars are pretty convenient!. There are too much sexual assault and crime reports. Better security is a must. I like Buff State so much more than I thought I would. The education department is awesome!!
Wow, I got 3 acceptance letters! One of them was from my dream school, SUNY Buffalo State! I've dreamed about going to this school for about two years, so seeing that acceptance letter really brightened up my life. August 23, 2016, the first day I stepped foot on campus. Boy oh boy was it hard for me to maintain a calm manner. i was really excited to see my dorm. I received my room key and ID that same day. I got to the door and slid the room key in the slot. I couldn't believe how bright the room looked and how roomy it was. From the looks of my room, I believed i would've had the best college experience ever.
Buffalo State is a good school for certain majors, such as Education. Many other majors struggle because of the lack of motivation by the professors. Buffalo State wrings you out dry for all your money, then turns around and kicks you off campus as a Senior, leaving majority of their Senior students stuck with a SCAM for off-campus student housing as a last resort option. The diversity is great, but the food, some dorms, and the campus scenery needs to be worked on. SO much construction is being done at once, making the campus look very unappealing.
