Prospective students will discover all that Buffalo State has to offer during the college's Spring Open House, Saturday, April 8, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Accepted students and visitors can tour campus, meet with faculty, learn about academic programs and student support services, and discuss financial aid opportunities.
“Open House allows students to get a feel for what life is like at Buffalo State and experience our dedication to community engagement, respect for diversity, and emphasis on internships and research,” said Tom Karanas, admissions adviser.
Open House attendees will check in at Rockwell Hall at 9:00 a.m., attend a welcome program in the Performing Art Center from 9:15 to 9:45 a.m., and then may meet with representatives from the Admissions, Financial Aid, and Student Accounts offices from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in Moot Hall.
