What is your overall opinion of this school?

Come in with an open mind and a drive to study, and you'll be successful. Stony Brook provides all of the resources to succeed in the science and mathematics fields. The arts department was cut this past semester and for good reason. Some professors are good and some are mediocre. It seems that everyone is either premed or engineering.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

In my opinion, academic-wise, the school is definitely living up the expectations that I originally had. The only issue I have at the moment is that the food is not very good. After the food provider was changed, the food became unliked by all the students. The student body put in multiple complaints and currently the school is looking to fix that issue.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

At first glance, I was able to feel the great vibe from this astounding university. It may be soon to say but, I will have a great time learning with intellectuals that far surpass the ordinary and hanging out with new friends. The school is welcoming to the freshmen including myself and I want to continue that. Clubs are willing to text potential new members before the academic year and there are no excuses to not join. If anyone from the New York area who wants to experience great education and club involvement, join SBU Seawolves.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There are a lot of great people here but most of them go home on the weekend. Professors and classes, especially the one's in STEM, are pretty hard but some of them are really attentive towards students. There's some work that can be done (when it comes to food, campus housing, etc.) but overall it's good for the price.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I grew up near and around Stony Brook University. Since I was younger I would go to their Dental School. Throughout junior high and high school I attended on campus summer programs. It was the place I knew I would always end up at but I had dreams of going away as well. I don't regret my decision of staying. Stony Brook is affordable and a great university. Unfortunately, we've lost funding for some arts and humanities departments which I'm involved with and it's rough to see them go. But I don't hate Stony Brook for it. I wish there were ways to keep these departments as I believe they provide variety to Stony Brook. Overall, Stony Brook is a great place. The "worst" part is my commute and making sure I get to class on time. I study and work at Stony Brook and can honestly say that I'm very happy to be. I would recommend Stony Brook to other students and I hope that this university can keep expanding.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a decent university with great professors. Overall the students at this university are very friendly. The foods at this school is terrible though (there are protests last year due to the poor foods served at this university). And freshman usually dorm with two other people (triple).

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Different people definitely have different opinions of Stony Brook. So here's what I think about it: the food is terrible (thanks Sodexo), but hopefully it gets better this fall, the professors are researchers first and teachers second, housing is expensive but its decent and the class sizes are horrendous, especially for certain science classes. With that being said, I still hope to make the best out of Stony Brook.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Holistically, I think that Stony Brook University has a lot of opportunities for its students that is not always clearly visible to everyone. One thing that students have to do to get connected is either be sociable and network, or join a fraternity or sorority. I personally am not a fan of Greek life considering some of the stigmas are true on campus, but I am not excluded from some of the amazing opportunities available because I communicate with people I believe can help me gain such advances in life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

While the campus is not normally involved in the casual party scene, there are clubs and extracurricular activities for just about anybody who comes here. Those that disagree tend to also be the ones that are not looking hard enough. Stony Brook generally treats they're students like adults, so it is their responsibility to learn about many of the activities to do on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Stony Brook has an excellent academics reputation. The classes are extremely tough but that is because there is a lot of competition between students. The professors are, for the most part and to my knowledge, incredibly supportive and know what they are talking about. I commute to school so I only know about on campus housing from friends. The food could be better but I'm there for the academics.
