Stony Brooks competitive atmosphere is very intimidating at first. I have learned to just keep my head up and do what I need to do to succeed and not let how everyone is doing intimidate me. The most stressful thing about SBU is actually the food, the quality has gone from a solid 7 out of 10 to a 3 out of 10. Students shoulnt beed to stressing about budgeting their meal point, and finding enough healthy decent food to eat. Also the distribution of funds is worrisome. They spend a lot of money on making the school look pretty and a lot of things slip through the cracks, such as the repairs in older buildings, the food, and student activites. While our not so great football team gets full scholarships, unlimited meal points, free ipads and beats and whatever else they want.

Stony Brook is a great a school with amazing opportunities.To be honest, I completely hated it here my first year, my 2nd year was slightly better, and it took until my 3rd year to realize that this actually is a really great school with potential for anyone. There's an insane amount of diversity, international students, and you can find just about anyone here from all over the world. My advise: make friends from everyone around the world, keep strong connections, diversity your worldview, and just join every club and randomly chat with people. 99% of them you won't click with but you will find a couple that you can click with. If you have an open mind in that way this will be a great school for you Just keep looking deeper and you will soon find greatness here.
