4. University at Buffalo
New York’s SUNY (State University of New York) system has over 64 campuses across New York and the largest, the University at Buffalo, has some of the most diverse campus life in the country. In fact, 6 percent of students come from out of state and alums are now employed in over 130 countries. Plus, UB is so international that more than 11 percent of UB students study abroad (which is five times the national average). Buffalo even draws some amazing people for guest speeches, including Laverne Cox and John Legend. For a cooler climate and major diversity, SUNY Buffalo is the way to go.
