A bit unorganized graduation. Lots of traffic and construction trying to get on & off campus. Dorms a bit drab. Lots of kids everywhere, cold in May.

Wouldn't recommend that anyone visit Buff State unless they were a grad returning to the alma mater. The grounds are pretty and it's near the river. But I'd spend my time at the Albright-Knox across the street (or any of a dozen other places in Buffalo). it's a college campus, not a tourist attraction.

I graduated from "Buff State" many years ago. I love to go back and walk around for the memories. Beautiful buildings, huge library, and some great football!

I have gone to several concerts at Buffalo State and they have all been excellent. The seating arrangement is good and you can see from any angle and they always start on time. You can always get a meaal before the concert and sit back and enjoy the concerts.

While I graduated in 1989, my nephew currently goes here, and I am frequently back to visit. To say Buff State had an effect on my life is not even close. All of my closest friends, and my wife, I met while attending there. The education is as good as any school can be in a small, commuter type campus.... More

I graduated from there may years ago with a degree in Home Economics Education. At the time it was a very calm, quiet, campus with students who were interested in getting a degree and going out into the world and make a living helping others.

I graduated in 1997. I was originally supposed to go to school out of state but ended up here. I really enjoyed my time at Buff State. I've met and remained friends with numerous people from around the state, and both my academic and personal experiences have prepared me for the path I've chosen. I've only gone back a couple...

As an alumni of Buffalo State I occasionally go back for various reason. I find it interesting to see the changes being made and like to go through some of the buildings such as the renovated portions of the Science Building. Hopefully, I will be auditing some classes this year and am looking forward to working with some of the... More
