Student Success

Students at Stony Brook University are given many opportunities for success. Here at Stony Brook, we give our students all the tools they will need to become a better leader, student, and person. Students have the chance to live in Second Year Living Communities, and to receive academic help in residential tutoring centers. Second Year Living Community offers students entering their second year the chance to build a support network. Our tutoring centers lend a hand to students who may need extra assistance in their academic courses.
