Last year when I was in a triple, how it was split was like this:

Person A: Single bed, full dresser, half closet, half desk.
Person B: Top bunk, full dresser, full closet, half desk.
Person C: Bottom bunk, full dresser, half closet, full desk.

So, there are two desks, three dressers, two closets, and three mattress (two of which are in bunk style) in the room. And no, the tripled rooms are not any bigger than the doubled rooms.

I got put in a triple last year. I ended up not getting any sleep, getting sick and having to go to the ER after about 3 weeks of living with them. But I'm sure you guys will be fine! (That's one of the many reasons I left Buff!)

There is no fee for freshmen to have a car on campus. There is, however, the requirement of a parking pass. Parking passes are $75, I believe. However, parking on campus is AWFUL.

The beds all raise and lower without bed risers. However, if you're in a triple and get stuck with the individual bed, you will need bed raisers... But, worry about that if that happens to you (which I really hope it doesn't! Awful way to start my college experience).

Also, if you're generally a clean person, you won't need a second set of sheets... I mean, you take 'em off, wash 'em, put 'em back on...

I agree with what karebear said, however, I've heard that Perry is quieter... Perry is a bit smaller than the Porter Hall rooms, and I think Neumann is slightly larger.

I don't know if it will be open in Fall '07 (probably not, knowing Buff State), but they're converting Cassety Hall back into a dorm building. I've heard that it will be for Freshmen. THAT would be a nice place to live.

The Internet here is SO horrible. It's slower than any dial up I ever had at my house over the years (I had dial up from '99 to '03). I once picked up a wireless Internet signal ("very low signal") and it was quicker than being plugged in to the Ethernet cord.

You have roomates and suitemates. There are 8 people in each suite. I haven't seen North Wing, but I heard the rooms are smaller than the towers, which only have 6 people in each suite.

As I just stated in another thread, the rooms in North Wing are very tiny. Check the other thread for exactly what I said.

I stayed in North Wing for Orientation and I must say the room was VERY small. At the end of the bed, there was about four feet before the closet. Between the two beds, there would be just enough space to possibly put a third mattress in there. At least from what I remember.

The room also was not very clean, but I don't know if that's just because it was during Orientation or not.

Married couples can live in the Moore Complex even if they do not have a child, as far as I know, considering the fact I know a few married couples who are there who do not have any children.

Can you get your bed lofted instead of bunking the beds? Does the school do it for you if you pay a fee?

Just put in a maintenance request for it and they'll do it for you. (At least that's what my ex-roommate did.)

I was going to say something about that, but I decided not to. Now that you said it though, that doesn't stop me from agreeing! Haha, sorry, Jen. smile.gif

I agree with mathgeni. Just find a group of friends who like to do the same type of things that you do. Mostly on the weekends, when I do stay on campus, I play board games and watch movies with friends.

I'm not coming back next semester for many reasons, but mostly because this school just isn't challenging me enough.

Read some of the other topics in this thread. Short answer: It's not a positive experience for many.

Are you saying that people of different races cannot join the clubs for black students? Whats with the segregation? If so, that is awful.
There are no rules saying that a white or another race cannot join the black clubs, but, it just doesn't really happen. A white friend of mine joined this fashion show from the AASO, not realizing what "AASO" stood for (African American Student Organization). After she was in the practices for about a week, she was still the only white there and there was so much discrimination against her from the other people in the group.

umm .. whats apples to apples .. totally lost haha but i just got accepted as a transfer for fall07 it would be great to meet you guys =) i have aim: yankeesrulz1 .. dont mind the sn ive had it since 7th grade lol
Apples To Apples is a board game where the object is to find the best comparison for the word that the dealer draws. For example, if the word the dealer has is "witty," one may put down the card "Robin Williams" or "Mars" or "Town Hall" or whatever they deem fits.

A very quick web search of "Apples To Apples" in Google came up with this result, among others: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apples_to_Apples While Wikipedia is not reliable at all, for the purpose here, it suits it perfectly.

So far, everything they said is right on.

Three Pros:
- If you're looking for an easy A, this is the right college for you. I barely studied this past semester (because of some health problems) and I still managed a 3.3.
- Just about anybody can get in, so even if you nearly failed you classes, you can get in. And get paid to go here.
- Midnight fire alarms at the dorms are always a plus!

(I'm going to limit it to) Three Cons:
- Not a lot of diversity in the types of classes you can choose from, depending upon your major.
- Professors are very easy.
- Just about anybody can get in to this school.
The above is in addition to what everyone already said.

1. Is it a pain to have to pay to wash and dry your laundry? I know other colleges allow you to wash/dry your clothes for free.

2. What is your favorite part of living on campus, what is your least favorite part?

3. Do you find it annoying that all the food centers are in the student union (do you with they were spread out), or do you find it conveniet?

4. Is it hard to meet new people or is it easy?

5. If I decide to go to Buffalo State, should I join clubs to meet new people? What kind of clubs are there?
1. Pain? No. Needless expense? Yes.
2. I really do not like living on campus at all. It's loud all the time, Porter Hall has so many fire alarms going off at all hours, it's insane... And many other cons. I like living on campus because I don't have to worry about finding a parking space... But sometimes I'd rather do that.
3. I don't find the hours of the food centers convenient at all. I don't mind the place, but the hours suck.
4. It's easy to meet new people, but hard to meet decent new people.
5. Personal choice.

I say to go with HSBC. There's an ATM on campus for that bank, so I highly doubt they'd charge you a fee for using it. There's an ATM on campus that says "No surcharge here!" yet I got docked by $2.00 from Citizen's Bank for using it.

However, I really like Citizen's Bank. There's branch about a mile up the road from campus.

granted it could be better, but we aren't paying for 5 star residence areas either- while some of the blinds may not match and the halls could use some new paint both do the job that they need to... i tend to look past the building itself and am just happy that all the people on our floor are really nice and can get along without being really noisy like some of the other floors( 3rd floor is especially noisy- at least when i'm down there in my friend's room after 9 at night)
Yeah, true. This floor isn't that quiet, but it is not nearly as loud as the second, third or sixth. The ninth floor seems really dead.

as far as the dorms go- i am in porter and haven't been in any of the others but the 5th floor(where i live) is pretty calm and everyone seems to get along quite well- i was also skeptical of the hall style(as opposed to suite style) living because of the difference in bathroom situation and have been surprised to find that it isn't bad at all- at least on my floor people keep the bathroom clean and it depends on the time of day if there are many people in there to take a shower
I'm actually on the fifth floor of Porter as well and I would have to say that while this floor isn't as dirty as most, it still isn't as clean as it could be. The hallways are so dingy - they look as though they haven't been repainted in twenty years. The blinds in the rooms are also all mismatched, some being different shades of tan from the others... This whole place just needs to be updated.

huh.gif Our daughter just received her acceptance letter and will be attending Buff state in the Fall as well. By the previous replies to your question I'm worried about getting her into a decent dorm....sounds like the least of all evils is Neumann???? Paper thin walls, fire alarms at 4am, dirty dorms etc. now I'm wondering what we're getting her into.

Just curious, does anyone have dimensions of the freshman dorm rooms and what size the closets are?
I can't encourage you enough to actually visit the school before your daughter comes here. Visit everything from the classroom buildings to the dorm rooms. Ask to see inside one or something. Seriously.

Neumann is very nice, from the time I've spent in there. It's not nearly as cruddy as Porter. Buff State doesn't have the greatest dorms though. Oh and, North Wing is very tiny. I spent my night of Orientation there... The rooms were really tiny, and dirty.

The closets are a really decent size. I could fit my (standard size) bike in one, with the front wheel spun to the side. I don't have any dimensions for you though, sorry.

Hey, Toby. Just an idea: Consider UB for Japanese studies. They have a great program, so I've heard. I haven't even heard of the program at Buff State.

On a side note, ever see Battle Royale, or read the book? I love it.
