Stony Brook University’s oldest and most revered student newspaper, The Stony Brook Statesman, is turning 50 years old this fall. To celebrate, your fellow Statesman alumni invite you to the campus during Columbus Day weekend, Oct. 5 to 7, to catch up, reminisce and reflect on five decades of campus journalism.
The event will also mark the official opening of the long-awaited School of Journalism at Stony Brook. Statesman alumni will see how the new school is being designed for tomorrow’s digital news gatherers. Attendees will get a V.I.P. tour of the school’s newsroom of the future and will meet the school’s first group of journalism majors and faculty. And they will meet the current editors of the paper and take a nostalgic look at the old newsroom in the basement of the student union.
