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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am proud to be a Stony Brook Seawolf. The campus is gorgeous (especially in the spring time with the cherry blossom trees) and I have made some really good friends. Some of the classes have been eye-opening for me in regards to my major and I had the opportunity to get really close to some of my professors. There is always a club to join and some of the events they host are so popular in the campus community. Some areas of improvement will have to be dining (SBU is in the process of switching food provider companies so hopefully the food will get better) and the campus housing process. It does get pretty desolate on the weekends due to a large commuter population but life's what you make of it! Undergrads should definitely hit up the renovated pool that just opened up-it's free for us! Overall, I can say that I had an awesome first year and I can't wait to see what the future holds here at SBU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall this is a wonderful school which really goes out of their way to make student life great. As a large university with a lot of students they know that it's easy for the school to swallow you while and spit you out. They really try to make events on campus fun and destressing they have pet therapy dogs come in during midterms and finals meditations groups and music playing occasionally. It's a great school that takes pride in the students that make it out of the school just be sure to utilize the services they offer like the tutoring center and you'll be a fine. The philosophy at stony brook is a flagship Ivy League education at a fraction of the cost so they're going to give you research level work. Be prepared.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My opinion of Stony Brook University is that it is a great school academically, especially for students interested in being Pre-Med and STEM fields. Other majors also have good programs and most professors are good, though, like every campus, there are some professors whose classes are more difficult but that adds to the challenges Stony Brook encourages students to attempt and succeed in.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Stony Brook University is great for someone academically driven and for someone looking to research - this university is heavily research-based, which many professors whose backgrounds are in the research fields. In terms of campus life, it comes in waves across the week; many people are either Long Island commuters or New Yorker natives, so you will find the campus almost dead on the weekends.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall a positive experience at a well-maintained and spirited University. Stony Brook University is a large campus with an excellent transportation system -- mostly buses. But there is even a railroad station on campus. Food options offer a great selection across campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Stony Brook is probably one of New York State's best public universities. It is usually very affordable for in-state students. The academics, especially the sciences, are on par with renowned private universities. So course, there are some complaints I have regarding campus lifestyle but after all it is located in suburban Long Island. After a while, you will become accustomed; if not the LIRR can take you to NYC relatively fast.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, Stony Brook University is an excellent school. However, it is not for everyone. If you wish to go to a party school, do not attend Stony Brook. Although the students do occasionally party, Stony Brook is more for people who wish to receive an amazing education and put things such as partying aside.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I already knew that I would be dorming when I found that I got accepted into Stony Brook University. I was excited and nervous before starting my college journey. Fast forward to entering my spring semester as a sophomore, I would make a recommendation to Campus Residences that the size of the beds should be "twin xwide" instead of "twin xlong". I mean, I kind of like having adequate leg space and not have my body on the verge of falling off. Also, I'm currently on no meal plan but I have a good idea of how downgraded our campus dining has become based on the complaints that the study body has voiced. Asides from that, I honestly love my university. I am so glad I reside right on campus, because once I wake up I get ready and head out and start my day. Whether it be the library, lecture room, adviser's office, I'm always doing something that needs to get done, making sure I stay productive and on top of my game. Of course, I wind down which for me is a good nap or watching funny compilation videos on YouTube. Oh, and I really recommend checking out the Recreation Center. It's a pretty neat gym with two floors and enough equipment to get a good workout in between classes. At least we just got our newly renovated pool re-opened in years! The campus community is hyped. I'm just hoping they feel the same towards the campus food, that's if it's going to get better. Things can feel rough at times trying to handle personal and academic responsibilities, but I don't regret my journey as a college student at all. I have to say Stony Brook makes it worthwhile.
