The University at Buffalo is a great research institution with affordable tuition. I received my BA from UB and decided to return to pursue my Master of Social Work degree (UB's School of Social Work is one of the top 50 in the nation). The size of the university can be intimidating, so it's definitely important to find a community within the university. For example, I majored in Gender Studies for my undergrad degree, which was a small major so I was able to get to know people in a smaller setting. I've enjoyed being able to meet people from around the country and around the world, as UB has a large population of international students. There are tons of opportunities to get involved with research which is super exciting! UB has endless opportunities which I am very grateful for!
Obviously, the University at Buffalo offers a great education. However, if they considered anything other than statistics, they could improve greatly. There is a lack of interest in their students from the classification system to an outright refusal to consider the opinion of students. Furthermore, the favoritism exhibited towards students on North Campus is unacceptable.
They don't offer a lot of English MA classes if you work full time during the week. I was able to complete the program but only with the accomodation of the English faculty. Otherwise classes were limited in subjects for me due to the fact that I had to take just whatever was offered at night each semester, which was usually one class.
