Prospective Students

Freshman orientation.

Every year, UB hosts several events for prospective students. These events offer a sneak peak into what your life could be like if you choose UB. Hope to see you there!

Discovery Day (Fall)

Discovery Day is designed for students and families just beginning the college search. Whether you're thinking about UB for the first time, or we've been on your mind for a while, Discovery Day presents the perfect opportunity to get to know us a little better. 

Open House (Fall)

Fall Open House is designed for students seriously considering applying to UB. Meet current students, learn about the UB Curriculum, and make sure you understand the ins and outs of the application process. Let us help you decide if UB is the right fit for you. 

Accepted Students Day (Spring)

Accepted Students Day is designed for students who have applied and been accepted to UB. Because our students are both high-achieving and hard-working, we expect that they may be choosing from several different options. Accepted Students Day is our opportunity to show you how much we hope you'll join our community of scholars. 

Plan a Campus Visit

The UB Office of Undergraduate Admissions and the College of Arts and Sciences hope you can join us for an event, or simply stop by when you have the chance.

We want to make your visit as interesting and useful as possible, so please contact us with any questions: 1-888-UB-ADMIT or

Spend a Morning with the College of Arts and Sciences

Meet with an advisor in your area of interest, visit a department, and sit in on a class. In the afternoon, attend a presentation and take a campus tour, hosted by Undergraduate Admissions. The morning program is available Monday through Friday. (Campus tours available Monday-Saturday.)

Please contact us at least one week before you plan to visit so we can make the necessary arrangements. 

Join a Class!

Prospective students are invited to sit in on one (or more!) classes during their visit. Get a taste of the unique UB academic experience!
