This book contains everything you ever wanted to know about Stony Brook University. EVERYTHING. This is much more informative than taking a tour of the campus, orientation, admissions counselors, or what any type of college manual will tell you. However, touring information, addresses, admissions deadlines, and financial aid information are all included in case you forgot to take notes walking across campus. This book does an exceptional job to inform the reader of the best places to find parking, the best places to experience the nightlife, where to find an unoccupied computer, the best places to eat, sleep, meet people, and even get honest reviews of professors and their courses. If you want an in depth guide on how to get the most out of your college experience, from academics all the way through school spirit and traditions, this is the way to find out. The amount of information that really is vital to a student¡¯s decision can be found here. Many of these things are learned only from having been a student here. I wish I had someone to point all this out to me when I first started out at Stony Brook! Hundreds of students culminate to give a truly unbiased and anecdotal appraisal of the school and its surrounding area in a way that students are acquainted with it. The mix of facts and opinions makes it so that you can have multiple conversations with the student body without leaving your home. This guide is perfect for any student who isn't sure of what they want, and is presented in a way that is personable, both free-flowing, engaging, and entertaining.
