Hello (future) Seawolves!
Hi everyone! For current students of SBU, a welcome-back is in order: it’s the first week of the spring semester! It’s also the start of my last semester at Stony Brook, a realization which is both exciting and bittersweet. But even as I’m preparing to depart for graduate school and beyond, it is always so fun to welcome newly accepted students to the Seawolf crew. Some acceptance letters for Fall 2013 (that’s the class of 2017!) have already gone out and Facebook is abuzz with questions and comments. This season we have a brand new social media tool for admitted students: the Inside Stony Brook app on Facebook. Once you’re admitted, you’ll receive an invitation in your email inbox. If you haven’t checked it already, you definitely should!
There are tons of activities, interests, careers, and other pages that you can “like” to form mini-communities with people who share your interests. It’s a great way to meet other students who are considering SBU.
You can also post questions about anything–student life, campus events, dorming, commuting, coursework, majors, etc.–and get feedback from current students who have first-hand experience!
If you are still waiting for news about your application, there is still plenty of time. If you’re unsure about the status of your application, make sure you check your SOLAR account. This is the first place that will be updated once a decision is made. When you log in for the first time, use your Stony Brook ID number (you’ll find it on the confirmation email and/or letter you received after you submitted your application) and your birthdate (MMDDYY).
Best of luck!
