SBU Earns Highest-Ever Ranking from U.S. News & World Report
Stony Brook ranked #1 among public universities in New York, #26 among public universities in the U.S. and #58 nationally in 2024 Best Colleges
This follows the New York Times College Access Index, which recently ranked Stony Brook 16th in the nation amongst the most selective universities in economic diversity, with 39% of our student population being Pell Grant recipients. A point that is reflected in the US News ranking, which ranked Stony Brook 12th nationally in social mobility, tying us for 2nd among our AAU peers.
CommUniversity Day-Success and Thank you!
Thanking the volunteers for their time and talents to be a part of CommUniversity Day.
Your support was reflected in the hundreds of smiling visitors who came to each table with a bit of curiosity and who learned something new in the process. Thanks to the many volunteers who staffed tables and provided overall help for each of their areas!
Based on the giveaways there was a flow of foot traffic, guesstimating 1,500-2,000 attendees!
New Construction Projects:
The new ferry building immediately to the Chamber’s office is moving very well with construction. Walls are up and roof to follow. Along with the new restaurant/deli building on the corner of Beach Street and W. Broadway, looking good with the façade completed with hopeful new tenants coming soon! The ‘Gap’ building’s owner has submitted preliminary site plans into the Villages Building and Planning department, with a hopeful review to start the tedious process of building a ‘boutique’ hotel with a roof top restaurant! The Chamber wishes all this new development well for creating more economic vitality of our business community!
