The State University College on Long Island was founded in 1957 in Oyster Bay, New York by the governor and State of New York, and had the vision of being a college for the preparation of secondary school teachers.Show more
The first class held had 148 students on William Robertson Coe Planting Fields estate, and all these students were admitted on a tuiton-free basis. 4 years after the school establishment, 30 students concluded their studies.
In 1960, Ward Melville donated over 400 acres of land to the state, which would soon become the new campus in 1962, at Stony Brook. At the same time, the college was renamed as the State University of New York at Stony Brook. In the same year, 782 students had enrolled and 7 years later, there were over 8,000 students. Since then, the university never stopped growing and in 1998 it became one of the top 100 American research universities as named by the U.S. News & World Report and its relatively affordable tuition placed it among the most valuable universities in the nation.
