The University at Buffalo has again been selected as one of the nation’s 75 “Best Values” among public colleges and universities according to The Princeton Review’s national survey of American colleges and universities.
In its profile, the editors at The Princeton Review cited UB for its “stellar academics and for all it is doing to make college affordable, especially for applicants with need in these tough economic times.”
The review praised UB for its “emphasis on research, offering labs that are open 24 hours a day” and said that financial aid in the form of scholarships is targeted to “students with financial need, first-generation college students and students who demonstrated their ability to contribute to the cultural diversity of the campus.”
According to The Princeton Review, when UB students were surveyed about why they love the university, they described the wide variety of academic opportunities available, saying, “There are more choices. You can choose many different combinations of academics and social activities with the support in place.”
Students also liked UB’s diversity, explaining that “although the typical student is of traditional age, there really isn’t a ‘typical’ student – the student body is very diverse in terms of religion, ethnicity, nationality, age, gender and orientation.”
