Let’s face it. Stony Brook is not a college town. Then again, most schools renowned for their science and math programs are not making the Princeton Review list of party schools. But the issue here is not just curriculum. The infrastructure for such a prospect simply is not there.
In the midst of the Town of Brookhaven cracking down on illegal rental houses used by Stony Brook students, residents do not place the blame for major problems on students.
