    Both my brothers go to Stony Brook. The academics are great, especially beyond those introduction freshman courses. My brother transferred from SUNY Buffalo and is very happy. I'm sure you'd like it.

    SBU's academics are hit or miss. Most of the STEM programs are very rigorous and offer really good opportunities. Other than that, I can't really say as I don't really talk to that many non stem people.

    Going off @existential12, I agree 100%. The STEM programs are very good. But I also know some people in business programs, and they are just as successful. So it's good for that too.
