What do you like most about UB/SEAS?

The School of Engineering and Applied Sciences is such a supportive environment. Everyone here—students, faculty and staff—all want to see each other succeed. Nothing here is ever “survival of the fittest.” We all work as a team and help bring each other up day after day. It discourages the mindset of “I cannot” and encourages you to think “I can.” It was really an aspect that drew me to UB and has been everything I could have hoped for and more.
