I love that D'Youville's in the city. It's a smaller campus, but there's still so much to do.

Around summertime, Canalside offers like concerts every Thursday here.

In the winter, there's a lot of ice skating, snowball fights, things like that that are just a lot of fun. If you want to go over to Niagara Falls in Canada, that's just a short trip across the Peace Bridge.

And Elmwood village has a great variety of thrift shops, coffee shops that are really local to the area, which I enjoy a lot. There's all sorts of restaurants, there's festivals. There's really anything you want to do. Even just walking the streets downtown is amazing.

So if you're a sports fan, there's the Buffalo Bills, the Sabers, the Bandits-- all sorts of events to go to that are so close to D'Youville. The name D'Youville, in general, is big.

There's literally a dozen, if not more, hospitals and health care facilities in Buffalo and D'Youville tries to utilize every single one of them throughout your clinical rotations. Being a nursing major, I'm exposed to every single population I could possibly work with, from geriatrics in a long-term care setting, to NICU patients in a hospital.

Even if you're not in the health professions, there's local businesses, or even any up and coming stores that are willing to work with us.

If you're bored in Buffalo, it's your own fault. There's always something going on, whether it's on campus or in the city. It's a great place to be. I love Buffalo.
