UB's Division of Student Affairs provides services and programs to help students delve deep into the UB academic and campus experience. Student Affairs programs help students build the distinctive qualities that characterize a University at Buffalo alumnus by:
  • Teaching them to extend their curiosity, learn independently and think critically;
  • Giving them perspective and skills to successfully manage the UB experience and life's challenges outside the classroom;
  • Helping them apply what they learn to real life situations and experience the world as an active member of it;
  • Giving them tools and the motivation to lead and serve and to critically choose a career path.
The University at Buffalo Experience courses and programs are designed to help students make a successful transition to college, prepare for life after UB, build strong leadership skills, be responsible global citizens, and practice lifelong healthy behaviors.
