Often referred to as New York’s public flagship university, The University of New York at Buffalo (UB) consistently ranks in the top 100 of America’s best institutions of higher learning, as ranked by U.S. News and World Report, in dozens of degree programs across its 13 schools and colleges. It is one of only two universities in the nation to have been founded by a U.S. President (Millard Fillmore, in 1846). Recent notable efforts on-campus include vital quality assurance projects for clinical HIV studies, development of supercomputing management tools for the National Science Foundation, and translation of collections of sonnets by 15th-century poet Domenico di Giovanni. UB offers more than 100 undergraduate degrees and more than double that number of graduate degrees. Life here, however, is much more than just the classroom; 300 on-campus organizations, 20 NCAA Division 1 athletic programs and the UB Distinguished Speakers Series (which has attracted such famous names as John Legend and Kevin Spacey) provide students a memorably well-rounded college experience. The University at Buffalo, with its focus on “global impact,” has proven itself time and again a worthwhile investment in the planet’s future.
