Our Commitment 

Starting your journey toward a college degree can bring up a mix of emotions. It's an exciting time, but can also be overwhelming as you adjust to a new environment and need questions answered.

New Student Orientation serves to enhance the experience of first-year students, transfer students, and their family members as they transition to Buffalo State. While student-centered programs such as Roar 2 Success, go a step further and work with first year students the entire academic year.

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.

We thank you for choosing Buffalo State as a part of your college journey! The Office of Student Leadership and Engagement supports students from orientation to graduation. Do not hesitate to connect with our office as we enjoy working with and supporting our Buffalo State Bengals!
