UNDERGRADUATE ATHLETIC FEE ADVISORY GROUP
The purpose of this group is to bring together a diverse cross-section of undergraduates to discuss the role of Athletics on campus, provide comments on Athletic initiatives, and to be a sounding board for spirit, pride and student marketing ideas. The primary goal will be to provide constructive feedback to the Athletics administration and to help educate the student body on the current state and future goals of the Department of Athletics.
In addition, undergraduate students will have the opportunity to discuss the current use of the Athletic Fee component of the Comprehensive Fee.

The Athletic Fee component is a vital part of the University community's strong commitment to and support for intercollegiate athletics. The Athletic Fee was implemented in 1994 in an effort to help support the Athletics program transition from NCAA Division III to Division I competition and to sustain a highly competitive Intercollegiate Athletic program.
Stony Brook University currently competes at the NCAA Division I level and offers a very diversified program consisting of 20 varsity sports (baseball, men's basketball, women's basketball, football, men's lacrosse, women's lacrosse, men's soccer, women's soccer, softball, men's tennis, women's tennis, men's track/cross-country, women's track/cross-country, men's swimming/diving, women's swimming/diving, and volleyball). As a visible component of the campus community, the Athletics program helps promotes campus pride and spirit as well as facilitates greater student involvement in campus events. It helps enhances the quality of student life, provides student employment opportunities, and increases opportunities for student interaction with peers from other like institutions. In addition, the program's national recognition and exposure aids in the recruitment of students, as well as, helps reconnect alumni locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally.
