CommUniversity DayAbout CommUniversity Day

Stony Brook University’s first CommUniversity Day will be held on September 22, 2018.

Arising out of the campus Plan for Equity, Inclusion and Diversity, this event will showcase the many facets of the campus community. The day has been planned for our neighbors, regional partners, alumni, employees and other friends.  CommUniversity Day will highlight the campus through hands-on, interactive activities, fun entertainment, exciting tours, and thought-provoking mini-talks. We encourage families to attend.

CommUniversity Day will be held on the Academic Mall from noon to 4 p.m. "Neighborhoods" will be stationed throughout the mall area for visitors to explore. From music to medicine, from food to fun, we invite you to explore all that Stony Brook has to offer.

In addition, Stony Brook University will be recognizing our 60  th anniversary. Celebration cupcakes will be shared for visitors while supplies last.  Visit the Registration page for more information.

CommUniversity Day admission is free and open to the public.

Registration is required and can be done at the Info Tent in the middle of the Academic Mall.
