Students

It’s not just our faculty who do amazing things. UB students do groundbreaking work of their own, leaving their mark on the university and the world around them.

“Getting out there and getting work experience and being able to apply yourself to a project is so important. To me, when you are doing something like that, it’s not work. It becomes something else, something more, something better.” ~ Evan Hamberger

Whether they are conducting climate research in Greenland, performing street theater in Prague or teaching English to refugees, UB students are active contributors whose collaborative learning experiences resonate far beyond the classroom walls.

At UB, civic engagement is more than a university value; it’s a priority. In a recent exit study of UB seniors, one in four students had worked on a research project with a faculty member outside of class, and three-fourths reported that they had volunteered their time or performed community service during their college career.

As evidenced by its diverse student body, a vibrant study abroad program and its location on an international border, UB is a university with a global reach, which helps UB students develop a truly global perspective. With more than 5,800 international students, UB ranks 18th among all American colleges and universities in international enrollment. And UB faculty members have forged working relationships with universities around the world, giving UB students the preparation they need for success in the global marketplace.

Here are just a few of the UB students who have leveraged their opportunities here to capture prestigious national fellowships and scholarships in the past few years:
