Countdown to College

Welcome to ROAR 2 Success!

We are excited to welcome you to Buffalo State College. As a first-year student, you will be enrolled in ROAR 2 Success if you are not part of another support network such as Honors, EOP, and Athletics. We will be working with you during your first year to help you adjust to college and learn about all of the resources available to you on campus to set you up for success!

Beginning in July, you will receive emails and texts about the Countdown to College program. This program consists of videos, texts, and challenges to inform you of important campus resources before you officially arrive on campus! All of this is housed on a free website called Flipgrid in which you can access using your BSC email and password.

One topic will be covered each week over the eight weeks prior to you moving to campus.

The Topics:

Your Support Network


Peer Mentors

Staying Active & Healthy

Managing Your Money & Financial Aid

Keeping Up with Your Studies

Your Mental Health & Taking Care of Yourself

Arriving on Campus!


You can access Flipgrid with the button here:

We will be hosting live events on weekly basis. This is an opportunity for you to meet members of our BEAT Team and other new students! Join us each Thursday!

These are all just introductions to some of the resources on campus. You will learn more and more about them as you arrive on campus! Again, we cannot wait to meet you in-person and have a fantastic first-year with you.
