Stony Brook students raise a cheer.

The excitement of our students moving on to campus begins with Experience Stony Brook activities on Friday, August 25, for all new students as we welcome the Class of 2022. Events continue throughout Saturday and Sunday, including the New Student Convocation and dinner, first- and second-night out activities, commuter and transfer student programs, movies, building tours and more. Returning students move in on Sunday.

After students say goodbye to their loved ones at the traditional Family Farewell on Staller Steps & Plaza, they will attend a series of programs and activities designed to acclimate them to the University and introduce them to faculty, staff and fellow students. They will receive their ID cards and agendas for Experience Stony Brook activities when they check in. Students should bring their ID cards to all events.

The fun doesn’t stop when the weekend is over. Many events are planned throughout the month of September, so cheer on the Seawolves football team or join an intramural sport, attend an outdoor movie or an orchestra concert, go to a paint night or an internship fair, and don’t miss Family Weekend on September 21-23.
