    “When I began looking at universities, I definitely wanted one that was small and intimate. … UB has helped me grow intellectually by exposing me to global issues and matters that I would have never known if I did not attend.

    “[In the UB admission office] I was greeted very pleasantly and to my surprise [an admission counselor] was glad to spend the time needed to make sure I was clear about the majors that were offered here at UB. There was no ‘when you get home, go visit this site and enroll.’ The gentleman helped me choose a major of my interest and enrolled me the same day of walk-in.”
