    As an out-of-state student it's kind of pricey, but so are the majority of schools nowadays. If you are a NY resident it's extremely affordable though.

    Simply put, you get what you pay for. It's still a state school, so don't expect too many (or any) commodities that you'd find in a private school, that's the truth. The buildings are pretty random and ugly (the worst combination), the food in the buffet dining locations is pretty low-quality, most of the professors (math/ comp sci) are pretty uninvolved in students' education, they're just there to lecture and hold office hours... which doesn't necessarily make them good professors who are good at teaching material. So you'll have to learn on your own for the most part (something I was really disheartened to find out. But hey, I guess you get what you pay for?) But you'll still find friends whom you can rely on, who make you laugh and make you think, and who help make the drab campus seem a little more fun and happy.

    For the price of a SUNY school, the education you receive is definitely awesome.

    It's very affordable for NY students and for out-of-state students, it's one of the cheapest schools. Stony brook offers good scholarships for incoming freshmen and very reasonable student loans.
