You may be either bustling with excitement at the start of your college years or anticipating the final leg of your undergraduate career. Freshman or senior, whether it’s photos of your favorite celebrity or outfit, dorm, or travel inspiration, Instagram always finds a way to bring us all together. Here are a few Stony Brook Instagrammers you should follow before you step on campus!
Alex, an Egyptian/Filipino born freshman, is not your average street photographer. Despite only beginning photography over a year ago after a week-long trip to France, his thought-provoking and vivid shots of everyday NYC life will inspire you to take a weekend trip into the city with a couple of your friends and explore the 5 boroughs it has to offer.

There always seems to be something going on down at the Campus Rec (from intramural sports to fitness classes). Whether you’re prepping for that summer body in the spacious gyms or catching a new spin class, you can make sure you’re up to date by following the campus rec not only on Instagram, but Facebook and Twitter as well.
Located in the Wang Center, Jasmine is home to all different kinds of cuisines, including but not limited to: Chinese, Japanese, and Thai food. Bubble tea or sushi. One thing is for sure: their Instagram feed is equally as aesthetic and amazing as their food.
If you’re really into live music and can’t quite afford those Beyonce or Kanye tickets yet, you can always check the University Cafe and catch some of the amazing bands and artists that Stony Brook has to offer. Funded by the Graduate Student Organization, you’re guaranteed to find at least a few bands or events you’ll be eager to go see over the year.

Arianna’s Instagram is one of travel, family, and overall good vibes. However, with her flawless photography and sense of style, her account is definitely worth the follow.
