This evening, Thursday, Sept. 12, Stony Brook’s Undergraduate Student Government (USG) posted on its social media accounts that the university’s annual fall semester concert had been canceled yet again.
Last year, the Undergraduate Student Government executive council candidates pledged to make several changes to improve campus life. The Statesman reexamined those platforms to see if those candidates upheld their promises.
Anna Lubitz is well known on campus. She is President of the Pre-Veterinary Society. She ran for Homecoming queen last year. She was a member of The Spirit of Stony Brook Marching band and sang the National Anthem at sporting events. Her mother works in President Stanley’s office.
On Monday, Sept. 16, 2013, thousands of Stony Brook University students picked up The Statesman and found an article titled, “Mac Miller concert: a reflection on our generation?” It’s curious that the article’s author, Tejen Shah, should propose his title as a question because he doesn’t leave room for any conversation.
The Statesman, “The Independent” and “The Press” were able to sit down with both The Cataracs and Mac Miller to talk about their careers, their personal life and their experience with the Stony Brook Concert. We chose some of our favorite questions to put in the issue. If you’re interested in hearing the full interview, it is available on our website, www. sbstatesman.com. All questions below, unless otherwise noted, were asked by The Statesman (Nicole Bansen or Basil John). Interview was edited for cursing.
