In an attempt to find housing, commuter students turn to SBU’s housing section of their website, but on the website, one of the first things mentioned is Stony Brook disclaiming themselves, saying that they do not vet any of the listings.
Every day at Stony Brook, each and every one of us is bombarded by signage: “Far Beyond.” The message from the university to its student body: If you strive for success, Stony Brook will propel you towards it. The university has fallen short on their end of the bargain.
Let studio art majors paint some walls or put up some sculptures in otherwise bland areas. It’d be cheap and easy to put up a few murals — definitely less costly to finance than a full-blown “Far Beyond” program.
