    The college experience is largely what you make of it. Some professors will speak with thick accents and their lessons will be hard to follow, but if you bite down your ego a bit, attend office hours, honestly say "I don't know, but here's what I'm thinking...", then you'll be relatively fine. Socially, it was hard to navigate because there's no cohesive "Stony Brook Spirit" and you'll have a lot more luck finding community in interest clubs.
