Students at Stony Brook University get all the advantages of a “premiere science and research university,” while also benefiting from the diverse atmosphere and low tuition costs of a large public institution. The school has a “great reputation in science and engineering,” as well as strong pre-med and pre-health programs; however, it’s the “access to hands-on, real-world experiences” that truly distinguishes a Stony Brook education.
