Expanding Part-Time TAP to fully part-time learners creates pathways to an affordable education for individuals of all ages who are often balancing other responsibilities such as a family and work. Full-time TAP awards can be up to $5,665 annually for a full-time student; part-time TAP will be available on a pro-rated basis to eligible students taking six to 11 credits per semester with no full-time prerequisite.

College is essentially moving to be free for most people anyways. It will have zero value and just a continuation of a High School diploma. Who's going to be paying for all these free handouts??

2022 was a solid year. $150 million is great. Lets hope that 2023 can match or even surpasses that figure. $6 million in 2.5 months is decent start.

Save for one or two people I don't know a single act on that list before 2004  ;D. We have had some very prominent entertainers come here though.

That is one heck of a list. A lot of legendary acts have visited Stony Brook over the years.

President McInnis Delivers Stony Brook’s State of the University Address
https://youtu.be/eAXY-kjvXXI?t=870


Around 14:30 McInnis says she's heard that we lack in "sense of belonging" and "welcoming".  And that we need to transform this, renew enthusiasm, etc.  This is an important goal, on day 1 wants students to find personal connection, a place to return to, promoting connection, etc. 

This is the first i've ever heard McInnis- or anyone at SB for that matter- address the elephant in the room.  She sounds committed.

What i like is they've reimagined undergraduate colleges to connect students in disciplines- i read that as putting freshmen in freshmen dorms by major.
Also, the CAA is a good step.  And they've added activities (though that's vague; id love to hear more). 

So, it sounds like she's getting the message.  A step in the right direction.
