Student Responses to Review Topic: Am I Enjoying Being Here

  • Deirdre from Baldwinsville, NY
  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    I did an overnight visit at Buffalo State recently, and I loved every minute there. There is always something going on somewhere on campus, and there are a ton of clubs and societies for every interest. The Student Union has a huge list of clubs and interests that someone can join in, and there is always another person who shares your interests. Also, it is right in the Museum District, which is perfect for my minor, as well as giving a lot of internship opportunities.

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    I think the reason for my high rating is that I have family in Buffalo, as well as my best friend attending Canisius College to see all the time, but Buffalo State is in a great area. It's in the Museum district, per se. It's in a very liberal and artsy part of town, so if you're one of those types of people who enjoy that, that's great. The college is within a city but it's entirely crossing a busy street to go between buildings! There are a bajillion clubs from what I've heard, a very active student union and a nice, up-to-date athletic facility. I'm pretty sure if you go out in search of it, there will always be something to do here. People often harp on the partying and how they want to party, but if you want to have clean fun, there's plenty of room for that as well.

  • I am a current student here

    As a commuter, it was challenging at first making friends, but there are many clubs on campus and activities to get involved in from sports activities, drama, extracurricular art classes, religious activities, student government, etc. On Tuesdays and Thursdays during Bengal Pause (12-1:40) most classes are not in session and there will often be demonstrations or free activities. Most students spend this time getting lunch, relaxing, meeting with clubs or just hanging out.

  • I am a current student here

    Campus life is great. There is never a dull moment. There are always different activities that appeal to every type of person. On Tuesdays and Thursdays Bengal Pause occurs, which is a period of time where no classes are taking place. This allows social and study groups to meet.
