The problem is the same: commuters, and residents who go home on the weekend. If you are either of those types of people, you are no friend of mine. Perhaps having a train station directly on campus was a bad thing all along. And the school keeps admitting these types of loser students.

Commuters: these are likely the poorest students in the entire student body. Whenever I ask people why they commute, the answer is always the same: money. Many say that even if the school opened up 15 new dorm buildings, they still would never dorm because they could never afford it. It’s probably too politically incorrect nowadays to say that the school should stop accepting these poor students, but there’s no other way around it: by being too poor to live on or near campus, you are killing the atmosphere of the school.

Residents who go home on the weekend: you people are just losers. You don’t even have the excuse of being poor because you already pay for a dorm room. You are just a legal 18-22 year old adult who is too weak to live on your own that you need to go home to mommy and daddy on the weekend. You’re just a child. You can’t go 4 measly months away from your parents? You need to ditch every weekend to go home and see them? Loser. What ever happened to independence? Going to college to escape their grasp? How mentally weak are you? This behavior is despicable.

Other things: the lack of a traditional college town for students to retreat to that is easily walkable from campus. Until you find a way to physically move Port Jefferson, count that out. This is where I rant about the Stony Brook townspeople. Whining about your property values. IDGAF about your property values! The fact that it’s been 60 years since this university was created and there’s no “Main Street” or bar row or giant gala of businesses catered to the college makes me sick! Radical revolution needs to happen. The school needs to tell the townies to F off and take the initiative to build this on its own.

Malatras can also eat a fat one. He is a bad, bad man, and he is a graduate of “SUNY Empire State”, whatever the hell that is. Doesn’t Sound like he will have our interests in his mind. Again this school is restricted by “SUNY”. A cursed four letter word that solely oppressed SBU by restricting its full potential. Cuomo has not done a single good thing for SBU since he arrived. He is evil and must be defeated.

Can't forget to mention the huge number of STEM kids as well. They're "smart", great, well they have the social skills of a brick and an aversion to anything related to sex or drugs. And their virgin asses probably add little to no social value to the school as well.

while i dont necessarily agree/disagree with this, i do think if we get the look and feel of a junior college, we are in danger of becoming just that- a junior college.  image is not everything, but it's a lot.

came across this by chance.... wanted to share: https://www.complex.com/style/2013/09/ugly-college-campuses/

The 50 Ugliest College Campuses

7. SUNY Stony Brook

SUNY Stony Brook has been criticized for years, even being named "neo-penal" for its "prison" aesthetic. The campus attempted to shed its bad rap by erecting new buildings like the space age campus recreation center and the Charles P. Wang Center. With these changes, the campus today has an oddly futuristic look, which stands in strange juxtaposition with the rest of the old 1960s buildings, especially the University Hospital.


there's obviously some questionable ones in there.  we've come a long way the past 7 years.  not sure we'll fix this anytime soon with the budget constraints that were already tight, pre-pandemic.

I think these guys just copy pasted an old list tbh. Because there is no way that Stony Brook U can be considered a top-50 ugly college.

For me the campus is quiet beautiful and green during my 2007-12 years. and if you go today in 2020 it really looks amazing. Sure, there are a few old buildings... but there are far more that are new and in good style. And with the renovation/overhauls of Old Chem, Union and Humanities over the years it looks even better. And if you add the Rec center, new comp sci, hotel, new residence halls, etc it looks great!

it has come a long way- definitely in the right direction.  renovating the union was huge. 

i just wish that when they build future buildings, they look at peers- but peers that we want to be like- not the ones that are our actual peers.

and then, tackle the larger problem.  creating a vibrant campus community with 15000 students living on campus.
