What is Experience Stony Brook?
At Experience Stony Brook, you will meet with other transfer students and will receive important information about your rights and responsibilities as a Stony Brook student, including policy information on issues such as drugs and alcohol, sexual assault, hazing, and the University code of conduct. You will also receive lunch and your student ID card and have the opportunity to visit an information fair consisting of various university departments. You will attend a series of programs and activities designed to acclimate you to Stony Brook and introduce you to faculty, staff, and fellow students.
Experience Stony Brook is required for all new students. Students who do not attend Experience Stony Brook will receive an Orientation Hold on their account and will be required to participate in the Required Orientation Makeup Experience (ROME) during the semester.
What is the schedule for the weekend?
New residential students will move in on Saturday and have a required dinner and residential meetings. The required dinner will automatically be billed to your residential student meal plan. Optional Saturday programs for both commuter and residential students include "Taking Care of Business" time with University office, a Family Farewell mixer, University bookstore open house, and social activities. Both commuter and residential students are required to attend the full day program on Sunday and will receive a detailed agenda at check in. More information about check in time and location will be sent to you via email in mid January.
