Our students are interested in a variety of clubs at Stony Brook University. The clubs below are advised by SoMAS Faculty or organized and run by SoMAS students. For more information about the other clubs at Stony Brook University, please visit SB Engaged.
Undergraduate Student Clubs
The Circus Club exists to enable access to equipment and knowledge about the circus arts to all SBU students. Many people interested in learning to juggle, unicycle, slackline, etc. find it logistically and financially difficult to get started.
We aim to teach those interested in learning, provide a place and time for people to practice with and learn from each other, and put on performances for the community.
The purpose of the Stony Brook Environmental Club is to protect, conserve, and improve the environment by taking action on campus environmental issues. We will also raise awareness about local, regional, and global environmental issues through publication, presentation, and public interaction.
Join us for focus committees, campaigns, guest speakers, environmental-themed book clubs, arts and crafts, outdoor activities, such as hiking and gardening, and more! We also have notable events like our fall Hallogreen party and spring Green Gala. If you have something you would like to contribute, please let us know! We welcome all students.
The Greenhouse and Gardening Guild is dedicated to the exploration of all topics related to gardening and greenhouse skills. Our club’s mission is to utilize the Life Sciences Greenhouse in order to teach local, sustainable farming to the Stony Brook campus. This is a hands on opportunity for students to grow and harvest their own produce. Meetings are usually every Wednesday at 1 pm in the Life Sciences Greenhouse.
For those majoring, minoring, or just plain interested in the other 71.11% of the Earth’s surface. Whether your jam is scuba diving, beach clean ups, shark diving, trips to the aquarium, ocean documentaries, or getting involved with research this is the club for you. SoMAS Major/minor declaration is never required – all are welcome!
The Marine Science Club meets every other Tuesday in SAC 303 from 8:00 PM – 9:00 PM. Hope to SEA you all there!
Stony Brook Society for Women in Marine Science
The purpose of the Society for Women in Marine Science (SWMS) is to provide a framework for discussion, networking, and mentoring young marine scientists. Our overall mission is to increase the visibility and retention of women in marine science, build inclusive professional networks, and create a community of marine researchers who acknowledge and address the difficulties facing women and minorities in the marine field.
The Stony Brook Meteorology Club provides an environment in which Atmospheric Science majors and other students interested in weather can come together as a community. We take trips to weather conferences, TV broadcast stations, and the National Weather Service, which offer our club members exceptional opportunities for education, networking, future research, and internships. At the conferences, club members present their own research to build upon existing knowledge in the meteorological community. We also bring our knowledge to the Stony Brook community by providing student-made forecasts and useful weather facts to the public on social media.
The club meets once a week during the school year. If you are interested in joining us at a meeting, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional information is also available on the SBUWeather Facebook page.
The Stony Brook University Sierra Club is an opportunity for students to explore, enjoy, and protect the wild places on our planet. We do this by teaching skills and providing experiences for our members that allow them to experience these wild places in a manner consistent with their preservation and conservation. To explore our wild spaces, we offer trips and events to our membership that bring them into nature and bring nature to them through backpacking, rock climbing, nature education, and other exciting ways. By training our members with the skills necessary to partake in these activities on their own, we allow them to enjoy these wild places to their own satisfaction. And by fostering a community, we provide an outlet for our members to enjoy these places with individuals that truly share their passion. But above all else, we foster a deep believe in our members that these wild places need to be protected and, in doing so, we provide the opportunities to protect these places through activism and environmental stewardship.
Stony Brook Belly Dance
Belly Dancing is one of the oldest dances to celebrate the female body. The Stony Brook Belly Dancers are a group of women from all around the world, joined together by the common love of dance. Our routines are made up of classic movements from the Middle Eastern countries where Belly Dancing originated but we also incorporate modern steps and beats. Belly Dancing is a unique way to tone and control the body while learning a “new” style of dance and having fun!
Graduate Student Clubs
The mission of the SoMAS Graduate Student Club is to facilitate and foster an enjoyable extracurricular environment for the SoMAS graduate student community. The SoMAS Graduate Student Club hosts annual events including Vax to Flax and Okubofest
The GSO is the graduate student government at Stony Brook University. The GSO is incorporated in the State of New York as a nonprofit organization.
While not affiliated directly with SoMAS, many of our students also participate in the Spirit of Stony Brook Marching Band.
