    Melissa McCarthy Talks about her Experience at Stony Brook University

    Melissa McCarthy has a lot to be proud of. Besides having her health and happiness, Melissa also has hope, honor, and achievement. Not only does Melissa shine in personality, but she is able to shine in her academics and her extra curriculum activities as well.

    McCarthy is a student here at Stony Brook University, currently enrolled as an English Major in the BA program. Her English career does not simply end with the academics, but continues due to her involvement in Alpha Nu Zeta or ANZ, the English Honor Society. Melissa is presently holding the position of New Membership Officer. According to her colleagues and friends, ‘Melissa is a ray of sunshine when things seem to get too gloomy, and believe me, there have been many times when her presence were needed.’

    Currently, Melissa is coordinating a 1st Annual SBU Poetry Slam, which is going to kick off its debut on April 18th in the Fire Side Lounge of the Student Union Building at 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm. Melissa is attempting to breathe life into poetry by allowing students to present their original works and pieces to an audience in a ‘safe and secure environment.’ By this, Melissa is hoping that more students, faculty, and friends will want to partake in this event knowing outright that no one will be offended; all the while allowing presenters to speak their mind about issues dealing with the government, environment, gender issues, poverty, sexual orientation, war/peace, and race.

    The 1st Annual SBU Poetry Slam is a direct reflection on Melissa McCarthy’s personality and her attempt to create a community on campus who are aware of the outside world, and the necessity of unity and camaraderie amongst all races, creeds, classes, genders, and sexual orientations.
