it's the issue i keep talking about- and no, we weren't even on his radar (LC, UVa, UNC, SU, MD).

i know i'm a broken record but kids look at colleges today based on social media reviews- and here are some of the latest:


(if you can get past the atrocious language) everyone has the same conclusion- there’s nothing to do on campus: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KtkQb-9W4CU

and the same thing, hard to make friends (give a few minutes only): https://youtu.be/9hTEVkifNlg?t=111

social life again (give this 2 minutes): https://youtu.be/YR-RvjbuDN8?t=390

lacking in campus life, no one around, no events: https://youtu.be/nY_X3ZDlHZk?t=561


and yes, it is now worse with a global pandemic.

Good job on collecting these Chairman. So much of this hit home it's crazy. SBU is definitely the most anti-social campus I've ever seen. The whole "it's what you make it" line is the same sh*t people have been saying for the last 10+ years. If there's anything that will hold this university back it is this. Then again, now with Covid and the college bubble bursting, people will be even more focused on costs and academics and less on a social life and the college experience, so SBU may not need to change. Other colleges may change to be more like SBU. I echo all the sentiments said though. The lack of a social scene is far and away the worst thing about this school.

exactly- it's a bad situation, potentially made worse by covid... or, does this merely put us on equal footing with others!!!

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.

The surrounding affluent communities refuse embrace a college town and the eggheads that govern our university will never openly advocate for a campus culture initiative that promotes creating more of Typical “college/party” atmosphere.  it’s simply not  politically correct for them to do so. Many otherS have made this point ad nauseam but the situation remains.
