Our Commitment 

New Student Orientation serves to enhance the experience of first-year students, transfer students, and their family members on their transition to Buffalo State.

Our comprehensive college-wide orientation program introduces students to a wide range of opportunities available at Buffalo State and integrates them into life at the college.

In 2020 new students will engage with Student Leadership and Engagement in new and unique ways! Starting with our live virtual sessions hosted by the Bengal Experience and Transition Team (BEAT Team), attend a virtual class utilizing Blackboard the colleges online learning platform, and experience an exciting and enhanced welcome experience during Bengal Bound.
