Welcome Stony Brook Families and Supporters! 

Dear Stony Brook University Families:

On behalf of the Stony Brook University community, the Office of Student Orientation and Family Programs would like to welcome you to the Seawolves family! As the Office of Student Orientation and Family Programs, our goal is to provide support to parents and family members throughout their students' time at the University.

As parents and families, our office understands that your unwavering support plays an integral role in your student’s success. Our office’s role is to be a support system to your family by empowering you with resources. This support comes in various forms:

  • Exploring the publications, guides, and additional resources provided on our website.
  • The Family Connection monthly newsletter is one of the easiest and most convenient ways to receive regular communications from the University.
  • Stony Brook University is also a member of College Parents of America, an organization that provides parents and family members with information and resources on the college experience.

At any point along the way, when you have questions, concerns, comments, or stories you would like to share please contact us at any time!
