The Ultimate SBU Bucket List

This may sound crazy, but those four years of college — you know, the ones that everyone says are supposed to be the best four years of your life — actually go by in a blur! I still can’t believe that I’m already going to be a college junior. Of course, we all want to make sure our college experience is as fun and as memorable as we can make it. If you aren’t sure where to start, here’s a SBU bucket list of things to help you make your college years at Stony Brook super memorable.

1. Participate in Roth Regatta.

And by “participate” I mean get in a cardboard boat and sail across the pond!

2. Visit all the tables at Earthstock.

I promise, you will definitely see something you don’t see everyday!Image result for Earthstock


3. Go to the Seawolves Showcase.

Because it’s humanly impossible to pass up $2 burritos (your meal plan will thank you for it!)

Do tapioca balls inside flavored tea intrigue you? Give it a shot!

It’s almost like going to an actual TED Talk!

Whether you make a mug cake, carve pumpkins for Halloween, or just play board games with your residence hall, you’ll have lots of fun!

14. Pet a chipmunk on campus.

You can also choose to pet a bunny, but I’d advise strongly against petting the geese or deer…

21. Watch a movie on Staller Steps.

There’s nothing like huddling with hundreds of other students for a movie, getting cold in the middle of it, and then half jogging, half shivering back to your dorm room!
