ranking universities is an impossible task.  too many assumptions.

however, kids look at these things, employers, etc.

SB #96 nationally http://colleges.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-colleges/best-colleges/rankings/national-universities

Stony Brook University is one of 64 schools in the State University of New York (SUNY) system. Located on the North Shore of Long Island, the university is accessible by car, train and ferry, and many students choose to commute. Freshmen do not have to live on campus. Academic activity pauses each Wednesday from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. for Campus Life Time, when students can check out free concerts, sample free food and take a break from the rigor of classes. Annually, students gather for events like the Roth Pond Regatta, a race of student-made cardboard boats, and the Shirley Strum Kenny Student Arts Festival, a week of student work showcases. Students can also check out more than 300 student organizations on campus, including more than 30 fraternities and sororities. On the athletic fields, the Stony Brook Seawolves compete in the NCAA Division I America East Conference. For a workout off the field, students can bike and hike around Stony Brook’s large, wooded campus, which includes the Ashley Schiff Park Preserve. For an urban experience, New York City is about 60 miles away.

$26,266 (out-of-state), $9,026 (in-state) Tuition and Fees  16,831 Undergraduate Enrollment

  160 of our kids  made the academic honor roll for the conference that is great !  SBU is not easy and to pull down a 3.0 GPA or higher is an achievement  to be proud of.

Good to see SB ahead of flagship institutions like Purdue, Illinois, Texas...and right there with W&M (considered a "public Ivy").

Now to build on this type of news with the public.   SBU is a steal for any kid  especially a NYS  student .

It used to be a steal even for out of state students. These days not so much, but it's still not horrible compared to what's out there.
