    The campus is located in a quiet, suburban area so you have to find ways to make your own fun. It can vary from card games to going to concerts in NYC. Whatever floats your boat.

    Honestly, I feel like the amount of work I have taking only 15 credits which is what you would have to take for 2 semesters a year to graduate on time is so much work. There isn't enough time for me to join clubs or make friends. There are parties. It's becoming a party school. There are lots of clubs, I wish I had time to do stuff.

    There are a lot of events that go on on campus. You can also go to watch the sporting games, which are free, or go and join a sport or club since there are TONS of those. There are a good amount of parties from frats or you can chill out at Dining Areas till late. On the weekends, you can visit the mall for free on weekends or sit around and enjoy the TV in residential buildings. There's an okay amount of stuff to do if one is truly bored.

    There's bikes you could rent. First hour is free. There's the gym/sports complex. If you like intramural sports, handball, etc. The pool has not yet opened even though it was supposed to. There's a couple restaurants nearby. Studying.. if that's what you do for fun. The beach is about a 10 min drive away.

    Stony Brook has sponsored events every Wednesday including farmers markets, carnivals, pie tasting, and much more! Get a group of friends and take a trip to the nearby town of Seaport and try the clam chowder or fresh water taffy. Smithaven mall is a bus ride away and free transportation is provided on Sundays.

    Get involved! Many people say that they don't have fun at Stony Brook, but they are simply expecting to have fun without making an effort or taking an initiative. There are activity fairs during Campus Lifetime which is every Wednesday. There are plenty of clubs and opportunities, it is just a matter of taking the initiative to join a club or just doing something!
