when are they going to do something about this.  it is literally hurting the entire university.

LOL.  The campus is a lot nicer now than when I attended, a few hundred years ago  :)  If you look at that list of schools, many of them are top-ranked Universities, including SBU, so beauty and ranking doesn't have a high correlation necessarily.   With Cuomo's "free tuition" plan in play, the demand for going to SBU will only increase, and the threshold for getting admitted will only go up.  All good for SBU's ranking and status, IMO.  Not sure if SBU administration has any incentive currently to beautify the campus to a larger extent.
How old a Seawolf am I? I followed them during their Final 4 DIII run in 1977-78 (they were called the Patriots then)

Who cares what the facade looks like on the outside. It's what inside and behind the desk that counts. Stupid article!

im two years late to this- but renditions of the student union for when it is renovated: https://twitter.com/GPCannella/status/667072778055626752/photo/1?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fsbindependent.org%2Fsb-union-gets-revamped-in-2016%2F

I freakin love it!!! Long overdue and will be a huge boon for the campus once this gets done.
