Why UB?

Each student has his or her own reason for selecting a university. We wanted to hear from our incoming class—so we asked seven first-year Bulls what it was about UB that made it the right choice for them. Hear them open up about the academics, activities and smiling faces all over campus.

New Life on Lake LaSalle

UB students, alumni, faculty and community members are embracing Lake LaSalle like we’ve never seen it before. New improvements to the lake—like adding 400 trees and shrubs along the shoreline, planting 600 aquatic plants and installing perennials in the wildflower garden—have helped this diverse ecosystem come alive. Now, it’s a sanctuary for students to forget their stresses, learn from their environment and even paddleboat on a beautiful day.
