At UB, your undergraduate experience will be more than your major. You can conduct research with faculty, give back through service and volunteering, study on the other side of the world, and much, much more. So go for it. Move beyond your major. Explore communities near and far. Try something entirely new. Pursue any passion you want. Because here, we believe in learning through doing. How you do it is up to you.
