|2.||University at Buffalo|
A prestigious and preppy university in Buffalo, New York. It was created in 1846 by the eventual 13th President of the United States, Millard Fillmore. The school was a private institution until 1962 when it became a public SUNY school. Today, "UB" has 3 campuses; the old South campus, the large north campus, and the modernized downtown campus. Alumni have produced 7 Nobel Prize winners, 3 Pulitzer Prize winners, 1 prime minister, 1 US president, and over 25 NFL players, just to name a few.
The school offers highly ranked degrees in business, law, architecture, medicine, pharmacy, education, and numerous arts and sciences degrees.
UB is also hard to get into...with only a 50% admit rate. It has higher admission rates than UMass, Stony Brook, Rhode Island, Vermont, Maine, and New Hampshire.
Person 1: Wow, you're smart, wealthy, and very good looking. Where did you go to college?
Person 2: UB - University at Buffalo, The State University of New York.
|1.||University at Buffalo|
A well respected University in the city of Buffalo, New York. UB is a flagship of the State University of New York system and is over 165 years old. The school offers some of the nations best degrees in Business, Architecture, Medicine, Dentistry, engineering, physics, education, and social sciences, to name a few. UB's athletic teams play in the Mid American Conference and are an FBS, Division 1 program. The athletic teams are known as the "Bulls", while the schools mascot is "Victor E. Bull". UB comprises roughly 20,000 undergraduates and about 10,000 graduate students. It is the largest university in the Northeast (comprising New England and New York State). Despite the other definition, UB is in fact a prestigious university and is one of the hardest schools to be accepted into in the state of New York. It also has lower admission rates than many competing flagship public schools in the nation.
Person 1: Man I wish I went to the University at Buffalo...they have athletics, well respected programs, and an awesome college experience...too bad I'll be going to a private school that costs $56,000
Person 2: Yeah, well I go to the University at Buffalo...and by the time we both graduate, we'll be making the same amount of money...except you'll be in $200,000 of debt.
Person 3: *sigh*

One of the most reputable Public Universities in the country that continues to rapidly rise in the rankings. The school is the PERFECT mix between an academically-serious/rigid school and a party school. Very good school for Engineering, Business, Architecture, Sciences and many others things.more...
It's one of the most affordable Universities in the country and the school is not located in the middle of nowhere like many other SUNY's so you rarely get bored. It's also very diverse and has the highest student-satisfaction of any of the main 4 SUNY University centers. The school bus service is amazing in the daytime but crappy in the evenings and night.
There is three campuses. North/Main Campus is located in the suburbs and is mostly made up of unappealing brick buildings but this is where the majority of the activity is. The South Campus is mostly beautiful historic buildings BUT tasteless tin trailers and handful of fugly 60's soviet-style bldgs ruin the ambience of it. Oh, and there's the Downtown Medical campus that few have actually been to. Thankfully, the UB2020 plan aims to restore beauty to all of the campuses.
- In a region with crappy weather
- Many of the older academic buildings don't have cell-phone/data reception.
- Crappy parking for commuters (especially on North Campus).
- Food in Dining Halls is overpriced.
- Crappy internet receptio...
