What is your overall opinion of this school?

I've really enjoyed my time at Stony Brook. Despite being a large school, the layout of the campus as well as the first year undergraduate college program makes the campus feel much smaller than it actually is. Stony Brook has some absolutely amazing professors and faculty members, making use of the resources available is the key to success at Stony Brook. The campus can be very unsocial over the weekends but during the week there is always people around. While the students at Stony Brook know how to have fun, everyone is there to work.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

SOLAR, it stinks, the program is from the early 2000’s and it doesn’t seem like they’ve changed a thing about it. The housing application process stinks, they have an 8 semester rule, if you are still in school beyond those 8 semesters it is very difficult to find housing on campus. The campus dining changes every year and it is getting to be frustrating. The average professor at Stony is usually very helpful towards their students, of course you are going to have some that aren’t as helpful. The dorms are great, if you live in Roth which has AC, otherwise, they are unbearably hot or cold most of the year.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It does have things it could do better, but for the most part, it is a very good university. The campus is beautiful and the care to keep it as such is very evident. The rooms and residential colleges are clean and generally not too secluded from other facilities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I still remember the day that i discovered my acceptance into my dream school. I would check everyday if there was any change in my application but what suprised me and ultimately made me ecstatic was that i found out i was accepted the day after my birthday. Couldnt ask for a better present. Love the school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a wonderful school with intellectual professors and dedicated students. Everyone is really focused, but they don't mind taking a break and having school spirit. The campus is pretty big, so for me as someone coming from a super small school, it was a little jarring at first, but you get used to it. Have a campus map on you if you need it. All the students I've met are really friendly and helpful.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Stony Brook University is a great school. There is a great community, especially during warmer weather everyone is outside having a good time. There are many opportunities to join clubs and be set up with jobs and internships. This campus is geared towards the sciences, so most resources are for those programs and labs. However, as an arts major my classes are extremely small and professors are always available and wanting to help. Professors here are all doing research, work at the hospital, or are published authors and well-known in their fields. It is not a huge party school, but there is enough balance where you can go out a few nights and focus on your studies other nights.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Most of the students entering Stony Brook come with the intention of a premed track. It is a good state school if you are wishing to save money for graduate school. It is very competitive but the staff are well qualified and have even won national recognition.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Stony Brook university has large class sizes for introductory level courses , but as you move into more specialized classes he size decreases so it isn't that much of a problem later on. There will be 8:45pm tests for these large intro courses and it will be a pain, but TA's and the professors are almost always available and ready to help. Food could be better or cheaper at some places, but overall it's pretty great.
