What is Experience Stony Brook?

Experience Stony Brook is a multi-day virtual program. You will meet with other students and will receive important information about your rights and responsibilities as a Stony Brook student, including policy information. You will attend a series of programs and activities designed to acclimate you to Stony Brook and introduce you to faculty, staff, and fellow students.

These days are required for all new students. Students who do not attend Experience Stony Brook will receive an Orientation Hold on their account and will be required to participate in the Required Orientation Makeup Experience (ROME) during the semester.
