I've flown and taken Amtrak, Amtrak was nice about the amount of stuff you can bring. Basically if you can take care of all of it by yourself then they'll let you bring it on. You will have to get a cab once you're in Buffalo though to get to the actual campus. As far as comfort goes, it's a 6 - 8 hour trip so you'll be uncomfortable sooner or later. Megabus does provide wifi for you but Amtrak provides many train cabins to walk and stretch through, as well as a food section.

I will be taking Anthropology


Your secretary can be reached at (716) 878-6110

Your website is http://www.buffalostate.edu/anthropology/c...escriptions.xml

There is no public listing of who advises who, so your best bet would be to call the secretary and talk to her and find out, just tell her your name and situation and she'll be glad to help you.

Hello, i just looked over my class schedule and i only have 5 classes, is that normal? And i was also wondering, who do i contact for questions concerning my class schedule? Do i have a consular or something? How do i find mine?



Yes five classes is normal. You do have an advisor, but you have to tell us your major if you want us to tell you your advisor. Or you can look it up yourself on your major's section of www.buffalostate.edu

is there cable in the room just in case we want to bring a tv?


Yes there is a coaxil hook up in each bedroom and in common rooms if you have one. If you want to hook up more than one television the RAs are provided with splitters to hand out.

hey! i wasn't sure where to post this question so on here seemed like a good place. I was wondering if there was a girls rugby team or a girls floor hockey team? are they clubs and how do they pick their mates? and when?



There is a girls rugby team, it is a club not an official team support by Buffalo State. There also is a girls ice hockey team which is supported, but no floor hockey. You might also like the intramural sports league, which is supported by Buffalo State and it cycles through all different sports throughout the year, usually single elimination or weekly tournaments where you make your own team to compete against other teams. If you want to join a Buffalo State team you can email the coach and try out.

Does anyone know if the microfridge rented through this company is just the fridge and microwave or is there a freezer too?



There is a small compartment that is a freezer inside the fridge, only large enough to hold a bag of ice or one to maybe two pieces of meat. You'd have to get the small servings of icecream if you want to fit those too. By the way, none of this is at the same time.

In the housing packet it should have said (near the top i believe) to send in a $200 deposit with the housing packet you filled out. The packet they send out about which dorm room/roommates hasn't been sent out yet. If I were you, I'd just call, see if they received your packet, they might be waiting on the deposit to place you in a room.


Call (716) 878-3000 and talk to Res Life about it, also to anyone who doesn't know, use http://bscintra.buffalostate.edu/rhino to see your roomate status.

[font="Comic Sans MS"][/font] To all who decide to drop by and read this, I appreciate it. =) My name is Tashawn Francis (Please feel free to call me Tash or Tk.) the reason i decided to write this is because I am very interested in kendo, but haven't actually gotten in any real practice. Of coarse I'd appreciate getting to know anyone, but I'd also love to know if there is an active kendo club, and if not I believe I read that in order for one to be created I'd need 10 student's and an advisor. If anyone can answer my question or is interested, then by all means please let me know. =) Thanks in advance! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/tongue.gif)


To make a student organization you'll need the ten students and an advisor which can be any faculty member. The advisor doesn't have to go to any meetings, and your group of students will have to elect a leadership board with at least two permament positions. You will have to vote every year for these positions and you must create and follow a set of rules that you then submit to USG (United Student Government). Then you can request funding for specific events or ask for a budget plan for the entire year. The more money you spend, the mre they will consider giving to you next year, but you have to show that you are using it properly for your student group and that it is gaining students interest.

Hi, I'm going to be living in the towers and heard we can have a microfridge. I was just wondering how many can you have per dorm room, and is it possible to rent them from the school? And if so, who do I contact? Is it possible to rent/get it anywhere else?


There is a company that works with the school that will be passing out many fliers the first week of school that you can order from to rent for the year. You can have one microfridge per person. They deliver them to your room and will pick them up at the end of the year. You can also buy them if you'd rather own it. I'm sure there are tons of other stores that sell them as well but they won't provide delivery and I don't know about the specifications that they will have to meet for the school to not take it away from you.

The internet here is ridiculously slow. Add to this the occasional outtages, it makes it unbearable.
How does UB have such fast internet while we are stuck in the past with abysmall bandwith limits!?


UB students pay more for faster internet, although they do not pay a large amount more, and it is worth it, Buffalo State has had hundreds of students complain and they have refused to talk about change. They will however repeatedly tell you that the internet is for academic reasons only, and will not support streaming or gaming.

Food is great here, so don't sweat it. Variety is enough and the quality is really good. Better than i've seen it in most places.


The food places have all changed, and unless you bought food today, you haven't seen or had the new food. I was there today, pizza is now $3 for one slice of pepporoni, and only the pizza place and sub shop were open, along with Spot Coffee.

Lisa,

If you're living on campus with a meal plan then there is no additional cost of living or monthly costs or anything like that, you pay roughly $3000 for three months of living and another $1500 - $2000 for three months worth of food. Thats each semester, and its all through your college bill, you're not writing checks or handing over cash every month. Anything you would spend money on would be extra, like off campus food, events, ect.

It is probably because we just got a new dining services company... I'll keep an eye out for ya though!

The new website for our dining service is http://www.dineoncampus.com/bsc/

To see the new menus, go to 'Places to eat' at the top. All of the establishments are listed, the prices are not correct and not all of the items on the menu have been fully updated ... Our new taco place supposedly serves margaritas but I'm sure they will change that.



Here is a picture of our new Spot Coffee

You will not be allowed to smoke hookah inside any buildings, and you must have permission and regard it as a student organization event to have it outside.

hey my names matthew and I recently decided to take the step and make the decision to go to buffalo state in the fall. So I was wondering what freshman hall would be the best to attend. Also I was wondering what the rules and regulations were for smoking (tobacco) on campus. Thx for all your help I really appreciate it.



The rules for smoking are that you are not allowed to do it inside any building and that when you are outside, you must be 15 feet away from buildings (no one follows this rule, not even the university police officers)

No one is going to run a check on when you're supposed to be moved out, if you want to move out friday, just tell people you have an exam on thursday and they will give you an extra 24 hours. This isn't jail and this isn't Trump Tower ... move out when you are comfortable and ready.

I was awarded close to $3,000.00 in a work study. I am transfering in Fall. I am hearing that even though students are awarded work study jobs- they do not always get them - as they are not always available. I REALLY am counting on that $3,000.00 and thougth that if it was awarded t you- you got it. What can I do to be sure I get a work study job? Can I do this before the fist day of classes, or do I need to wait until then?


You apply for work study jobs just like any other job. They are first come first serve, just like any campus job. The only way you could start looking for a job now would be if you start applying for them through emails and such. My advise to you, would be to look for a regular job and not just a work study job, because work study will only be $7.75 an hour, while if you apply to other places off of campus, you can use the same time to make more money. Don't close any options because you were approved for work study, work study isn't special like you thought, sorry.
