What Students Are Saying

3.63 Average Rating
Stony Brook University affords one the opportunity to achieve goals they never thought possible. You will be pushed and tested but it is for your benefit in the future. For the price of the school, the amount you will learn about life, relationships and in your field of study will be invaluable!
Ashley from Amityville, NY
Stony Brook is a big research school that still maintains both a strong sense community and school pride. There's ALWAYS something happening on campus, regardless of SB's reputation as a big commuter school. There is plenty to see, explore, and do, and on top of it all: the academic programs are top-notch!
