Stony Brook students pulled a different kind of all-nighter for 12 hours this past weekend. From Saturday, April 26 at 6 p.m. into Sunday, April 27, students occupied the Campus Recreation Fields for the fourth annual Relay for Life event and raised $42,741 for the American Cancer Society.
Campus Dining Services is currently investigating a case involving a rusty nail pressed into the bottom of a student’s hamburger bun purchased at Wendy’s in Roth Cafe.
Sophomore English major Ashley Tymann bought a junior bacon cheeseburger from Wendy’s at 6 p.m. on March 30. After taking it back to her friend’s dorm to eat it, she found the hazardous addition to her meal once she took a bite and a rusty nail fell onto the wrapper in her lap.
To say Stony Brook University’s campus is diverse is somewhat of an understatement. Our students come from all walks of life; they come from different races, religions, nationalities, sexual orientations and not to mention have extremely varied personalities. Knowing this, wouldn’t it be neat if someone classified all these people? Maybe by giving each quad a distinct, defining characteristic? Or even better, an actual character? How about some of the most famous characters of all: the Greek Gods.
Over the past few weeks, Stony Brook University made efforts to remove snow from walkways and roadways across campus. Despite those efforts, though, some students feel the residential buildings have inaccessible or slippery entrances.
