Stanley can walk the walk, but can he talk to students?

Emily Benson February 13, 2014
Responsibility and power: two things needed to make a great leader. Stony Brook is home to many honorable and worthy leaders in administration, but I think some have forgotten that leadership is not a job of isolation. Now, I’m not here to call anybody out, *cough* President Stanley *cough*, but I would say that good leadership should provide a sense of presence and connection among the community. A good leader, in my mind, is someone that wants to truly represent their people, and right now, Stanley seems to avoid contact with the student body like the plague.

The importance of joining organizations of campus

Keith Olsen August 26, 2013

Its huge size and population can make it extremely difficult to form strong bonds with other people, which makes it easier to deal with the stress of such an academically challenging school. Perhaps the best way to survive and prosper in this new and rigorous environment is to join something bigger than yourself, specifically an organization or club.
