The Stony Brook Independent was founded in 2004 as the official publication of the Stony Brook University campus chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists. It has since become an award-winning and complete news source for Stony Brook University while remaining, yes, independent. Alone among the university’s student-run media, the Independent accepts no subsidies from the Undergraduate Student Government’s activities fund.
The Independent gives readers the latest in campus news, arts, entertainment and sports in an online format exclusively. It has no print supplement.
The Stony Brook Press, a magazine, is published every other week. It serves as an open forum for students, covering news, features, arts and entertainment, humor, opinion and sports. Its investigative reports and incisive analyses inform the campus community, promote progress and incite debate.
