Stony Brook University Sport Clubs

Stony Brook University also participates in competitive competitions through various leagues, associations and Unions not associated with the NCAA. Although not affiliated with the Athletics Department, these clubs fall under the purview of Campus Recreation. With over 25 Men's, Women's and Co-Ed teams, the sport clubs have embraced the new RED HOT Seawolve's mascot and represent Wolfy well at competitive competition across the United States and around the world. In fact, the Stony Brook Men's Rugby team is the first recorded athletic team team to represent the Seawolf overseas playing some of the toughest European competition against various Irish teams.

Some of the larger and more well established programs are:

Stony Brook Ice Hockey:
Stony Brook Crew Team:
Stony Brook Men's Rugby:

In addition to the opportunities that Sport Clubs provide, the success of the program depends heavily upon the student leaders of each individual club. These student leaders must have the initiative and drive to handle administrative decisions regarding their club, as well as motivate club members to take part in various activities.

Alma mater

Stony Brook’s Alma Mater, Sandy Shore, was adopted in 1985 after a composition contest. Dr. Peter Winkler, a professor in the Department of Music, in conjunction with lyricist Winston Clark, wrote the winning submission. Carol Marburger, wife of former University President John Marburger, is credited as the guiding spirit behind the song.

Sandy shore
Meeting the Northern sea
Ancient ground where newborn dreams arise
Scarlet, gray
Under azure skies
The morning of a lifetime lies in Stony Brook
Raise a grateful cheer for Stony Brook!

Youthful joys
Youthful folly, too
Ancient wisdom seen through youthful eyes
Lifelong friends
Bound by youthful ties
The morning of a lifetime lies in Stony Brook
Raise a grateful cheer for Stony Brook!
