The campus, really nice... The professors, friendly if you know how to network and talk to them... The people here, really friendly and getting to meet/know new people isn't a task at all. The school is very nice, they provide fun activities almost daily for students, and with the plethora of clubs available at this school, one can have a true college experience at Stony Brook University.
