What is your overall opinion of this school?

Stony Brook is a great place to diversify yourself. I'd say the best aspect of the university, besides the academics, would definitely be campus culture. There are so many different clubs and activities you can really immerse yourself and find a passion for. You can come into college a little unsure and shaky on the person you are, but with the aid of Stony Brook's countless number of extracurriculars, you'll undoubtedly discover something you love and in turn, discover yourself.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think is both an affordable school and a great university because of how much it has to offer in terms of professor availability, research opportunities, extracurriculars, large alumni network, networking opportunities and student life. I find that a well-rounded experience makes a great University and Stony Brook has all the characteristics needed to help students become successful.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Stony Brook University is huge but they give the student enough time to go to classes and to work on and off campus. The professors and students there help each other and hold events and club activities for student to blow off steam as well as to become more active. Aside from some far distance traveling, the campus is a safe haven that makes the students feel natural with each other and with their professors.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The Stony Brook University is a good place for those who want to take advanced curriculum in the sciences and engineering realm, but it lacks opportunities to participate in art and music. The primary focus of the university is to provide education on STEM subjects, and there aren’t many clubs or extracurricular activities that give its students a break from the overwhelming nature of STEM classes. Coming from a performing arts background, the transition to biomedical engineering was harder because there just aren’t enough places where you can be a musician and stress-relieve. The student body, as a whole, is also too serious and very introverted, which makes making friends a difficult task.

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.
