At more than 50 years old, Stony Brook University is a relatively young university. However, it is one of the most up-and-coming educational institutions. Work is always being done to make the campus more beautiful and better able to handle the growing numbers of students. A wing was added to the Student Activity Center (SAC) that features a state-of-the art exercise facility, art gallery, student lounge, and other amenities. The Wang Center is also an art building with Asian restaurants that feature a world-class sushi restaurant, a theatre, and waterfalls— it’s just breathtaking.
The campus athletic facilities are immense. The Kenneth LaValle Stadium was erected to support the Seawolves football team’s rise to Division I. There are courts for every kind of sport. There is even an indoor track and an Olympic-sized pool. There are at least a dozen computing sites on campus that are all open at different times of the day, some open as late as 4 a.m. The Student Union is also a major hub on the campus, especially for campus residents, due to its proximity to the H-quad. Big name acts who have recently come to rock out in concert at Stony Brook inlcude Jimmy Eat World, Taking Back Sunday, and Kanye West.
