Living in the Bengals Community

As a public college with a public purpose, Buffalo State is committed to providing leadership, guidance, and resources to the Western New York region. The college is dedicated to engaging in community partnerships that enhance the quality of life for a diverse population in Buffalo and the larger community.


At Buffalo State, students take a hands-on approach to learning. After graduation, our alumni use the tools established both inside and outside the classroom to build successful, rewarding lives. This instills an active sense of service in our 100,000 living alumni, more than half of whom reside in the 12 counties of Western New York. In turn, our alumni connect with current students to offer valuable internship and service-learning experiences that strengthen the Buffalo State network.
