Very good value for money. This school has two kinds of students: ones who want to get their degree and get out, or those who would rather spend all their time in frat basements. It's like an airport. Everyone's just trying to go their own way, without unnecessary contact with others and with minimal pride for their school. No one absolutely loves being here, we all tolerate it for the price. Teachers are like airport staff. They're good at what they do, they'll help you get to where you want to go (if you ask), but ultimately they don't care about you or what's going on in your life. It's not hard to make connections, but you really have to put in a ton of effort. In conclusion, it's big enough to find your people, but so big that you might lose yourself.

I didn't take part in the party scene, so I would not be able to comment on that....I got a good education for a reasonable price with a lot of facilities and mostly excellent professors.

Great School, I have yet to find any major flaws. The professors I have had have been well engaged in university activities, and respond immediately to questions; the advisory is also quality in my experience, from day one. There is a wide variety of courses and programs to choose from, as well as clubs, and the connections buffalo has in terms of internships and employment is stunning. Coursework is very doable.
