My daughter will be a junior in Art Ed program. We re trying to fill out housing and meal plan form. She will live on campus first year. Wanted Moore complex but have been told it has waiting list. Told she has to choose towers. Form has which tower to check - does it matter??? How about the North Wing/Honor's Floor - if she is not a partier would that be a choice and how do you get in? She has 3.89 GPA.
We have no idea how to pick a meal plan. Just need serious suggestions.

Hi,

For the meal plan part of your question, check out Buffalo State's Dining Services website here. There are different options (plans) that your daughter can choose from. If you look at the top of the website you will see an option that says "Plans".

You have to be accepted into the All-College Honors program to be in the honors suites in the North Wing.

The towers don't change really, there are some differences though. The towers are being renovated, starting with Tower 4 and moving down a tower each year. If you want brand new furniture and nicer walls, elevators, ect, pick Tower 4 or 3. Tower 1 is connected to Moore complex, and stays open during holiday breaks. So while everyone in the other dorms besides North Wing has to leave the building while it shuts down, your daughter could stay if she wanted. Tower 4 is closest to all around student parking, while Tower 1 is closest to faculty/student parking and where she will have to walk to get to class. The rooms in the towers are bigger than the rooms in North Wing, but have more fire alarms and overall rowdyness.

My daughter was in Perry Hall her first year and the rooms were a very nice size plenty of room for 2 people nice big closet . Now she is in Tower 4. They just remodeled them and she was all excited to move in. She's in a suite which is 3 bedrooms 2 people in each room. Well when we moved her in last year.WHAT A HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT ! The room was so small you could barely turn around. In perry the closets were built into the wall so you had a lot of floor space. In tower 4 they put in 2 free standing closets that were half the size of the one she had. The furniture was so crammed in we had to take it out and rearrange it.This is what was in her room. 2 Closets, 2 beds, 2 desks, 1 lamp . the lamp is literally at the door and you can barely open the door to get in the room. It's really really bad. Now in all fareness this is just one of the rooms in the suite. Across the hall her suitemate's room is much bigger but her desk is much smaller. They have new carpeting so you don't have to bring an area rug and they have their own bathroom.The living room is very big they keep a tv their and games.
