About CommUniversity Day
Stony Brook University’s CommUniversity Day will be held on September 21, 2019.
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, 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.
CommUniversity Day admission is free and open to the public.
