    Why did you choose Stony Brook?

    I have a passion for ocean conservation and aspire to be an open water researcher. During my college search process, it was important that I find a school that offered courses and experiential opportunities related to my interests. As far as I could tell though, there were no other schools in the tri-state area that offered marine science-related degrees. But then I discovered the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, the courses offered, and the study abroad program to Jamaica, which involves hands-on research. That's when I knew I'd have no shortage of interesting things to do while enrolled at Stony Brook.

    I didn't know about stony brook until one day I walked into my high school advisor office and saw the SBU flag. I liked it so much that I ended up applying. SBU offered me a great community, affordable education, and the opportunity to do research, volunteer work in a hospital, and expand my horizons by getting to know different people from different communities.

    Why did you choose Stony Brook?
     
    As a first generation student, the college application process was very foreign to me. I had never lived far away from home before. I knew I wanted a change of scenery and some independence but the ability to travel home quickly in case I really needed to. I want a school that offers numerous clubs and leadership opportunities, as my school did not have all of these things. I wanted a school where professionals can help me figure out my career path since I came into college as undecided. In addition, I want a campus community that really celebrates diversity and makes an effort in bringing about diversity. For all of these factors, Stony Brook seemed like the right choice for me.

    Why did you choose Stony Brook?

    I wanted to attend a university in a suburban setting that would point towards an unifying college community all while being in New York and close to New York City. Stony Brook offered just that and the challenging, yet dedicated program for a degree in the sciences that was a perfect match for me. The ethnically diverse and welcoming reputation of Stony Brook sealed the deal for me.

    Why did you choose Stony Brook?
     
    I chose Stony Brook primarily because of the WISE program. There was no other program like it at all of the schools I looked at, and I knew I wanted that community on campus. I also chose Stony Brook because it was just the right distance from home.
