Why UB is Right for You

Congratulations! You've been accepted to the University at Buffalo, one of the premier research universities in the United States. As you consider offers from UB and other top universities you have a difficult decision to make. Let us show you why you should call UB your home away from home.

The clearest and easiest way to make this decision is to make a point-by-point comparison. Because we’re confident that UB is a good match for you, we'll help you get started.

What should you consider and compare? Some criteria, like price and ranking, are easy to compare, but there are other important factors that will impact your educational experience, too.

  • What kinds of opportunities will you have to enrich your education outside the classroom?
  • How flexible is the university to accommodate your unexpected needs to change your major or add a minor or engage in one-on-one research with a professor?
  • Does the university actually provide you with experiences that prepare you for a career in our global, interconnected and interdependent world?

If you haven't already made a comparison worksheet, making one can be a helpful way to see what UB can offer that other schools can not.
