My daughter is in her junior year at Williamsville East high School and in the process of looking at colleges to go to. So far this spring she has traveled to Chicago and Boston among other places to look at different schools. Choosing a college is a very personal decision and not one to take lightly. I have suggested she look at the University of Buffalo, but she really wants to go out of town.

If you have never been to U.B.'s North campus in Amherst, you should check it out sometime. It really is a beautiful place. I realize that pretty buildings don't always translate into a great school, but U.B. is a nationalally aclaimed school right here in our backyard. And, yes, it's nice looking as well. Check out this video of U.B.'s North campus in Amherst.
