Commencement Update
All students will be allowed 2 guests to attend their in-person commencement ceremony.  New York State has eased its restrictions on large gatherings to permit a small number of guests in LaValle Stadium, as long as they follow all current health and safety guidelines, including social distancing and wearing masks. Both students and guests will also be required to provide proof of recent COVID-19 testing or vaccination before being allowed in the stadium.
  1. Proof of Completed Vaccination (2 weeks after your second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine)
  2. Proof of negative results from a PCR test taken within 72 hours of the ceremony
  3. Proof of negative results from an antigen test taken within 6 hours of the ceremony
Please visit the Stony Brook Commencement site for the most specific and up-to-date information!

Seawolves Food Drive

Students for Humanity and Distressed Children & Infants International have partnered with the Faculty Student Association (FSA) to organize a Seawolves Food Drive from now until May 14th.  Students can use their Dining Dollars to buy non-perishable food items (cans and plastic, no glass). These items are donated to the Stony Brook Food Pantry and Suffolk County Shelters.

Donation boxes are located at West Side Dining and East Side Dining as well as $10 donation bags available for purchase at the Emporium at East Side and the Market at West Side.

A little bit goes a long way! Every donation helps!
