New Student Guidebook

We at the GHA have compiled some of the more important things about the ins and outs of the academic side of the program, but we’ve also included sections on life in Buffalo: where to live, things to do while you’re living here, as well as answers to other questions that past students (ourselves included) have had during their time in the program.

We hope that this information will help clear up any questions that you may have as you enter into the program, but moreover, we hope that it will help you settle in and feel a little more confident about what the next several years have in store for you. Buffalo is a great place to live, and our History Department is full of easy-going and friendly students, faculty, and staff. We’re all looking forward to meeting you!
