Ms. Allison Suflita

Academic Advisor

As an alumna of the University at Buffalo, I am so excited to work with the next generation of Bulls as an academic advisor in the Honors College. It was the experience of working with my own academic and career advisors here while I earned my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration that led me to pursue this fulfilling path in higher education. After graduating from UB, I advanced my education and in 2011 earned my Master of Science in College Student Personnel Administration from Canisius College in Buffalo, New York.

Prior to joining the University Honors College, I served as an associate director in the Career Development Office at Kenyon College in Ohio and as an assistant director in The Griff Center for Academic Engagement at Canisius College. At these two colleges, I had the opportunity to work one-on-one with students to develop professional skill sets that would allow them to take their career to the next level. I am passionate about connecting students with engaging and meaningful experiences throughout their academic careers, and look forward to helping current Honors Scholars chart their journey toward a successful future.

In addition to one-on-one advising, I coordinate our annual orientation and kickoff program in addition to our annual workshop series, serve as a liaison to the Office of Fellowships & Scholarships, and maintain internal databases to monitor student progression through the Honors Curriculum.

Outside of the office, I enjoy spending free time with my family, friends and furkids, organizing anything and everything, listening to music, playing volleyball and pickleball, and traveling to places I’ve never been before.
