  • Summer at Stony on June 27th, 2013

    Summer at Stony Brook is one of my favorite seasons. As soon as the weather gets warm the campus really comes alive; although, with summer, spring, fall and winter courses and activities, Stony Brook never really dies down.

    Next month SB Life is hosting the Stony Brook Film Festival, which features over a week of independent film screenings. This month we’ve had an outdoor movie on Staller Steps as well as a summer BBQ.

    It’s a busy season for Admissions too. Tours and Info Sessions have started. The campus is filled with recently admitted and prospective students eager to learn about all that Stony Brook has to offer. Tours begin in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions and typically feature walk-throughs of academic buildings, the Student Activities Center and a Residence Hall.

    If you’re interested in coming to visit but can’t make it to the tour or info session dates, we have an app, iTourSB for Apple devices and TourSB for Android users. This app will guide you around campus, giving you information about the buildings, classes and the school in general. It looks like this:

    iTour SB also has a brief description of every academic major and videos of campus events. It’s a way to get a little piece of Stony Brook right on your phone!

    Of course there is no substitute for actually visiting campus! There is something about coming to a game and cheering on the Seawolves or lounging on Staller Steps that makes you really feel like you’re a part of the community.
