Student Life

Buffalo is the second largest city in New York. Its close proximity to Niagara Falls, Toronto, Rochester, the Lake Erie waterfront, and the Finger Lakes provides extensive opportunities for sailing, bicycling, swimming, canoeing, wine tasting, and camping in the spring, summer and fall, and skiing, skating, and hockey in the winter. Arts and cultural offerings include numerous art museums and galleries including the acclaimed Albright Knox Art Gallery, outdoor music concerts and art festivals, touring Broadway productions at Shea’s Performing Arts Center, the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, and music venues showcasing established and up-and-coming artists in all genres.

Buffalo sports fans passionately support major professional teams in NFL football (Bills), NHL hockey (Sabres), AAA baseball (Bisons) and lacrosse (Bandits). In addition, the area has facilities for recreational tennis, basketball, golf, squash, soccer, and racquetball. The Buffalo Niagara airport is modern and convenient and offers direct flights to many locations, including New York City, Boston, Washington DC, Chicago, Detroit, Atlanta, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and cities throughout Florida.
