What is your overall opinion of this school?

This school has a very misleading reputation, it appears excellent on the outside but it is a facade. The school is poorly manages and is constantly closing down programs leaving students at a loss. The professors are researchers and are top in their field but they are not good instructors or teachers. They lack the patience to teach students to basics in the field that they are masters in. This school needs a lot of reevaluating in order to become the great university it claims to be.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I never had aspirations to go to college when I was in high school and I found myself in community college for four years aimlessly taking classes and changing my major. Now that I'm a Seawolf I feel like I finally belong and understand the college appeal. Stony brook offers so many amazing events filled with free Stony Brook paraphernalia, inspirational guest speakers like Korey Wise from the exonerated central park 5, home cooked international food and services like self-care events and therapy dogs on campus during finals week. This school is beyond caring and accommodating to its students, it's more than a college here, it's like family.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Stony Brook University is a largely known as a big STEM school out of all the State Universities of New York (SUNY). Like many schools, it has its fair share of bad professors but you will get the chance to meet astounding professors who are truly passionate about their craft. Academics are challenging but it is manageable. The social life at Stony Brook is known to be "dead" which is true but there are amazing people that you will meet whether they be in your major or from extracurricular activities. Campus housing is not all that great but is not bad enough that it is unlivable. College food is known to be quite bad but you can find some nice food during late night hours or outside campus foods.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe Stony Brook University may be the best cost efficient school. By that I mean, you can get a decent education and degree and it isn’t as expensive. The campus is pretty nice. Because it is mostly a commuter school it does clear out on the weekends. I don’t mind the quiet but that also makes the social life of Stony Brook not great. It’s still easy to find friends and have fun but there’s not a big party scene. There’s a great recreationally sports culture if you’re into that. The administration has been pretty helpful as far as I’ve interacted with them. Some classes/professors are harder than others for different reasons.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I'd say its one of those schools that is kind of in the middle. Not the best, but definitely not the worst. Academic are pretty good, but the school is mostly known for its sciences. Student life is okay. There isn't to much to do around campus, and it is hard to get around off campus without a car. Sports are decent, but they are not a major part of our school. The school does try to host events for to keep us students entertained, and there is a good amount of clubs and organizations on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Stony Brook University is a university that seems to strive for excellence. The advisers do their best to get you into the classes that you were locked out of. All their flags and banners match in wolfie red and white. They have beautiful artwork all around campus. My favorite feature is the massive amount of pokestops around campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Stony Brook University has really good school spirit and everyone is willing to help. personally, I have a great move in experience and there are so much food variety in the dining hall. professors are extremely helpful and if you take the time to visit them during their office hours, they can be like a best friend. Overall, if your are an outgoing person and love learning new things, stony brook is the way to go!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Love everything about this school! Although I do wish that they offered more parking to students nearby campus. Otherwise, this is the University I admired the most because of their integrity, cleanliness, diversity, and of course, their academics. I would most certainly recommend this university to any and every student out there!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

On-campus social life is a bit lacking but there are fun things to do if you make friends. Most professors are decent but, like all schools, there are some bad ones to look out for. Roth Regatta is a super fun campus tradition every year! Food is decent for the price, but I would recommend getting off of the meal plan as soon as possible.
