The SEAS Undergraduate Student Ambassadors are a diverse group of students from different departments who are enthusiastic about UB and want to share their experiences and all that the university has to offer.
When visiting campus, you may see our ambassadors volunteering at Open House, Discovery Day, Friday Engineering Tours, and other events. If you see them, say hello and feel free to ask them your questions about UB!

I've played piano for 12 years and am an aficionado of father-esque humor.
Not knowing anyone in the engineering department while also being a commuter student made me anxious about coming to UB, even as a local student. That worry was quickly dissolved as UB has endless opportunities to make friends through clubs and extracurricular activities. Professors are friendly and open to questions, while having classes with people in the same major makes it easy to get to know colleagues.

I've been a vegetarian for three years.
I most enjoy how the staff and professors in SEAS are always willing to help, whether it's school related or not!
During my free time I love to play basketball, guitar, and piano. I also love to eat food.
I love UB because of the easily accessible professors and access to extracurricular activities.
University Honors College; UB chapter or IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers); and UB Scientista. I am also a member of UB Glee, Culinary Club, and I am the Events Coordinator for the UB Indian Student Association.
I am fond of singing, dramatics, and traveling. I am an all-time foodie and love cooking and relishing new cuisines.
UB SEAS is one of the largest schools at UB and is deeply committed to providing academic and technological excellence to students. The one thing that I like the most about UB SEAS is the hands-on experience that the departments provide in the form of clubs and resources like UB Robotics, Experiential Learning Network and various machine shops. These resources help enhance the technological skills and reinforce classroom learning.

I am Co-Director of UB Scientista; PR Chair of UB ACM (Association for Computing Machinery); and a member of CSE Undergraduate Student Advisory Board and IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers).
I've been doing theater since I was 12 and hope to start a theater club soon at UB.
I chose to go to UB because I love the strong sense of community here! The professors, staff, and students are very approachable and always willing to help. There are also quite a lot of opportunities to get involved, whether it be through research, clubs, or internships - you name it.
I am involved with UB Scientista and am an Enterprise Infrastructure Services Student Assistant.
I am an avid traveler and love learning about the cultures of different places.
The entire SEAS community is always there for each other and always will help you out during times of need.

I am an undergraduate teaching assistant and a member of UB Scientista.
I can speak five languages and I am currently learning Arabic.
There are so many ways to get involved in respective departments. The faculty members are friendly and are always there to help. I personally feel that the CSE department has so much to offer to the students - from volunteering for events to getting involved in research. You also get to meet people from different parts of the world, which is cool!
I am involved in the student chapter of the Biomedical Engineering Society, the Society of Women Engineers, and Women in Science and Engineering. I am also a mentor in the Honors College and participate in research at the Jacobs School of Medicine.
I studied abroad in France during the Summer 2018 semester, where I took statics and also traveled to 4 different countries. I would highly recommend this program to all freshman engineers!
The SEAS at UB goes beyond the classroom; there are so many great ways to get involved - from clubs, to tinkering, to internships, and working with faculty on research. The options are endless, and the community here is unbeatable.
I am the marketing director for the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers here at UB, and a student leader for EAS 199, the introductory engineering seminar for freshman engineering majors. I am also part of Outdoor Adventure Club, Women in Science and Engineering, and the school's ski club, Schussmeisters.
I have been to seven different countries: England, Scotland, France, The Netherlands, Belgium, Canada and the Bahamas, and America, of course. I love traveling and photography, and I plan on traveling to more countries in Europe and heading to Asia and Australia in the near future.
What I really love about UB is the community of the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the school in general. It was intimidating coming to UB from a small high school, but as I got to know everyone within engineering, I learned how much of a tight knit community we are, and I felt at home. I love winter, so I picked the perfect place!
I currently do Optimization reserach on fire safety, get to be part of a start-up on an engineering team, run a battlebot team as the Vice President of the Society of Women Engineers, and work in the Student Union.
I try to hit up one of the four malls in the Buffalo area at least once a week.
My favorite thing about the SEAS at the University at Buffalo is how many opportunities and events are available throughout the year. If you are looking for a school with opportunities, you picked the right place!
I am part of the Society of Women engineers, Women in Science and Engineering, Indian Student Organization, and Buffalo Zeal. I am also part of a research project and currently a teaching assistant for a CSE class, as well.
A fun fact about me is that my one and only hobby is dancing. I have always been passionate about dancing since childhood and it is something that I will never stop doing.
What I like about University at Buffalo and the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences is the vast amount of opportunities available to make you a successful student - for instance, numerous clubs and organizations, research opportunities, etc.
Undergraduate Researcher at CAL (Control and Automation Lab); Team Captain of the UB Hyperloop Team, Hyperbulls; and a member of Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (SEDS), Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), and UB Men's Soccer.
I'm really good at arguing. I like politics, too!
The one thing that I like the most about SEAS is that you can approach any of the professors from any department and you can get involved in research, labs, or studies. I got involved in CAL my freshman year of engineering and started working on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. There are also a lot of opportunities for students to get involved in the MAE department, be it volunteering for alumni events, organizing competition and events, or just attending club meetings.
