On March 31, 2014, something unsurprising happened: it snowed once more on Long Island.
Monday’s crazy bout of early spring snow created horrible traffic jams all throughout Long Island: Nicolls Road, one of the major roads that most commuters use to get to class, was an absolute mess, while I’m sure the L.I.E., Route 25A and 347 could not have fared any better.
A huge percentage of us take the bus. As a student who lives off campus, I frequent the express, but I have ridden a bunch of them. And while many of us take the bus, a slightly lesser percentage act like terrible people the minute they ascend those steps.
Being a commuter may have its bad points, but it is very easy to have just as much fun as any other student. I am having a great time as a commuter and a student at Stony Brook. I believe the more effort you put in as a commuter, the more fun you will have at Stony Brook.
