Stony Brook University, SUNY Reviews
Stony Brook does a good job at getting the students involved in campus life, with multiple activities and events every week. They also excel in academics, it is a great research school! Stony Brook is currently working on making its weakest department better, the food. In the grand scheme of things, good food is not the highest priority in the eyes of a college, and that is understandable. However, The food options have become non-diverse and unhealthy since the most recent food company, SODEXO, has taken over. Stony Brook has since put in efforts to replace the company in order to fix these problems.
I've had a great experience so far here at Stony Brook. All of the professors I've had have been super experienced in their fields, and the academics as a whole have been a lot better than expected. It is a pretty big commuter school but there are things going on most weekends. Whether it is going to The Bench or Schafers, or a frat or athlete party, there will always be SBU students having fun, you just have to find it. The athletics teams are all actually pretty good. Basketball gets the most turn-out but any sport you go to will definitely be worth it, and the athletes need more support! All in all a great school with a beautiful campus!
In my opinion, Stony Brook University is a fine school that offers many opportunities to its students. Academically, Stony Brook is fantastic for STEM majors and boasts incredible academic resources and connections for students to take advantage of. The campus is lovely (especially during the autumn and spring). While the dorms and campus food might not be the best, the student life, organized mainly by students themselves, is incredibly fun and welcoming. Furthermore, the diversity of the student body and the strive to make Stony Brook an inclusive campus for all races, genders, and sexual orientations is commendable. I enjoy my current life here at Stony Brook University very much, and would recommend it to any student in the New York area.
