Rigorous and smooth administration
Tips: Rigorous study environments, relaxed international community, good number of international students and professors. There we have healthy competitions and great exposure to different social events to build all round developments. Indian students are good in numbers here.
Likes (Safety): Very safe on campus community. Campus police departments is well-staffed and trained to ensure the safety of the student. The university has strict policies and procedures in place to prevent crime and respond to emergencies. Stony brook university also has a number of resources for students such as 24-hour emergency response team.
Dislikes (Indian Food): Not many options for economical Indian food nearby. There are only a few restaurants which can give Indian food. The lack of demand for that type of cuisine may be one reason for that. Along with that, there are separate bodies which provide only American food.

Cheap and affordable education.
Tips: The university is one of the cheapest in the US and you will be able to find a good network of people who stays with you on-campus. It is located in the Suffolk County on Long Island in New York state. The grocery stores are very far but you can get shuttles to go there.
Likes (Safety): The university is situated in Stony Brook, Long Island which is a very sparsely populated city in Long Island, New York. So the university is very much isolated from the rest of the cities. There is no concern about mugging and other crimes which usually happen in cities. So it is very safe.
Dislikes (Part time work): Part time work is difficult to get on-campus and we are not allowed to work off-campus during the semester. There is a lot of competition as everyone wants to get part-time job to lower their burden on tuition fees and get some funding for their living expenses.
