A lot of great news in that Doc Chairman.

Glad the IPF is on the way! I wonder if ours will be complete before Buffalo's is? I doubt it, but it'll be very close.

charles wang passes away: https://www.sbstatesman.com/2018/10/21/long-island-businessman-and-philanthropist-charles-b-wang-dies/

Quote
In 1996, Wang initially pledged $20-$25 million to build an Asian American cultural center at Stony Brook. At the time, this was the biggest ever donation made to SUNY by an individual. By the time the building opened its doors in October of 2002, Wang said he and his foundation put more than $52 million into the project.

Quote
Then I asked, “What are the biggest issues that Stony Brook faces in managing its budget?”

Stanley claimed that many budgeting problems come from the fact that the university’s costs are increasing faster than its revenue.

“The revenue we have has come through state allocation, which hasn’t gone up since 2007,” Stanley said. “In 2007, we received $200 million a year from the state to help manage Stony Brook. We now receive $157 million dollars a year, and its been frozen since 2009.”

That's a major problem and a poor business model to say the least . Only New York would short change a one of its premier university

You'd think the geniuses up at Albany would eventually get the hint to get this all together, but apparently not.

Quote
Unique to this year’s effort, Stony Brook University President Samuel L. Stanley Jr., MD, and his wife, Ellen Li, MD, PhD, have pledged to personally match the total amount raised by the Class of 2019’s Senior Class Legacy.

“By matching the total raised by the class of 2019, Ellen and I want to let our students know that we are behind them 100 percent and really appreciate what they are doing to help others,” Dr. Stanley said. “We also know that our challenge may inspire them to want to do more, and we are committed to helping the class of 2019 make a real difference.”

Great news coming out of SBU.... I know it was announced a while back... but glad to hear this is coming soon

The University is adding dorms in the northwest side of campus with the hopes to balance residential dorms around the academic quad. Very exciting. I hope the noise from the stadium and arena draws the students to the game.

Also very exciting is the fact the university is taking charge in providing more immediate retail access to its students.. TAKE THAT NIMBY Three Village residents! It's a shame that the University had to use its own land for this. But its a necessary move!

thanks.  this could be a game changer on many levels- if done right.  and will have downstream impact on campus life and attendance.

also dont forget that that commercial area on 25a is being developed.  anyone have updates on that?

anyway- despite what the article says- this is NOT the first we are hearing of this.  there was a formal plan showing this back in 2012 or 2013.  i have to find the link.

Great development for the university. Will finally put an end to tripling (RIP, I'll almost miss it in a way lol), and get some mixed use development on campus for student oriented commerce and residential spaces. Hopefully this comes together. That was one of the last areas of campus that really needed some redevelopment. All that's needed now is a new union and to slowly refresh the cold war era structures on campus to make the entirety of SBU look modern.

Yes. I agree. there was a Facility Master Plan released back in the early 2010's while I was in school that outlined the 10-year growth strategy for the University. They have done really well and have already build most of the buildings that were planned. This Northwest Residences is the last phase of that master plan

The Union is already in process of getting a complete overhaul with a new brick facade. I really liked how its looking. Its essentially a new building!

I don't think the University will ever end ditripling. Honestly, there is no justification for tripling students every semester after building some much housing. That leads me to believe that tripling students is a strategy used by Residential Life to ensure that they don't have empty dorms every Fall. They triple people and then de-triple them as some students don't show up on campus

yeah its like overbooking a flight.

its good that there is so much demand for students and then dorms, so that's a positive (in some sense).  i still think more kids on campus near the athletic complex is good for attendance and school spirit.
