The school, which has roughly 30,000 students, consists of three campuses.

“While UB’s home city of Buffalo has a reputation for some legendary snowfalls, the university is quick to point out that it also enjoys, ‘The sunniest and driest summers of any major city in the Northeast, as well as ‘Crisp, comfortable autumns that produce some of the Northeast’s most vibrant foliage,'” Money wrote.

60 percent of students who apply to the school get accepted, Money says.
