Great school! You get an IVY league education for a fraction of the price. School is absolutely one of the best for College of Arts & Music, College of Engineering, and its computer science programs. School does not have such a good pre-health department. Biology classes are much harder than they need to be. Not many resources are available for tutoring and help in biological science classes. In addition if you need to speak with a biology advisor there was no walk in options. Sometimes it took as long as 4 weeks to meet with an advisor.
Stony Brook was absolutely amazing. All the professors are extremely knowledgeable and great teachers (many professors don't know how to actually teach, they do!!) I went through the Higher Education Administration program and loved it! I was especially drawn to their study abroad program studying international/comparative higher ed. If you are pursuing a career in higher ed and need a great Masters program, go to Stony Brook!!
