The Out of State/ Out of Area Welcome Reception

Fall Semester Opening Weekend

 (By Invitation Only)

The Out of Area program hosts a welcome reception for fall incoming Out of Area/Out of State and International students and their families the night before traditional first-year move in. This reception includes dinner, a chance to mingle with university staff members, and allows for families to connect with families from outside the local area. Following the dinner, students are taken to a special students only program where they are matched with upperclassmen Out of Area mentors, with whom they are encouraged to connect with and attend events with throughout the year.  If your student identifies with this population, encourage them to check their Stony Brook e-mail for further information and a formal invitation.
