    Get to know your peers right away; whether that's those living in your dorm or those in your classes. Not only will you have some great new friends to destress with, but study sessions are a lot less tedious when you have someone to power through them with you. Prioritize; now, you'll get off a lot easier if you know exactly what you want to do (major and career-wise) because you can knock out all the courses you need right away. Stony Brook has a lot of general education requirements, though, so try to get those out of the way ASAP. Have fun with them, though! There's literally hundreds of options for classes; you won't necessarily get stuck in a dry philosophy class for your HUM credit.

    Maybe try to learn to ride a bike or longboard. Those two seem to be the most effective way of travelling around campus. Futhermore, take advantage of all the opportunities given to you, as it will make your college life so much more engaging and worthwhile.

    Use every single free tutoring service available. Exhaust the TA's and professors office hours. Always place your academics first. Plan to nap at least an hour a day. It really helps to relax your mind. Join a club or intramural sport to help stress relief.
