Buffalo State names dean's list students


Luis Caraballo, who is studying criminal justice, has been named to the Fall 2022 dean’s list at Buffalo State University.

He completed at least 12 credit hours and earned a grade-point average of 3.5 or higher.

Buffalo State, a part of SUNY and one of its flagship universities, is a member of the Association of American Universities and is recognized as one of the world’s exceptional and affordable universities. It offers 79 undergraduate majors and many minors and certificate programs, including 60 graduate programs.

Buffalo is its own city — with three campuses, 18 residence halls, and apartment complexes that houses more than 7,000 students. Eight solar installations generate enough electricity to power nearly 2,000 homes.

Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education College ranks Buffalo as the No. 1 public university in the state. While U.S. News & World Report ranked it No. 38 for the best public university in the United States, and Credit Summit ranked it 25th for most affordable university in the United States.
