Hustle and Bustle, Stony Brook Moves Back In

The huff and puff started early on the morning of the freshmen move in day,as students and their families unloaded their cars. The constant complaint of ‘there are no elevators to get to the third floor!’ rang through everyone’s ears. Many parents forgot quickly about the convenience of an elevator, once their child had all of his or her things set up in a dorm room.

The Welcome Wagon, a group of volunteer students, were always on the move. Helping unload, carrying things from cars to the buildings, and figuring out how to carry bulky items up the stairs, became an ongoing sight across the quads. Parents were greeted with a smile from the Welcome Wagon, and were happy to have unexpected help.
Freshmen weren’t the only new students to move in on Thursday.

Transfer students, and their parents, also filled the campus streets. Anteinea Middleton, a junior, transferred in from Rockland Community College, and said she knows Stony Brook will offer her great opportunities for a good price. She is studying business accounting and finance.

‘I hope to graduate on time, meet new people, and become really involved on campus,’ Middleton said. ‘I’m thinking about joining my dorm’s hall council, and I want to become an RA by next year.’

Sophomore Victoria Fiorito, a transfer student from Norwalk Community College,Connecticut, is excited, but also apprehensive.

‘I wasn’t social enough at my other school, but there are 23,000 students on this campus. Fiorito is a Biology Major and wants to join clubs on campus, like the Environmental Club.
