Listen to this bullshit. I PNCed a course with Jeff Barnett the day of the deadline. He had to do it since I couldn't because I was a freshman. He claimed it was taken care of, but just now when I looked at my grades on solar, the "D" I got for the course showed up instead of a "P", and it's utterly fucking up my GPA. What the hell is going on here? HELP PLEASE!

Subject:Um, hello...
Time:10:26 pm
Hi,

I'm a high school senior from New York City who's going to be attending Stony Brook University in the fall. I joined this community because I'm more than a little anxious about going to college, and because I'd like get a different perspective of what Stony Brook is going to be like, one other than the sugar-coated information packets I've been receiving.

You all seem like a nice group of college students...would you mind answering a couple of questions?

So yeah, I guess I'm just wondering about the basics: What are the first couple of weeks like? Is it hard to make friends? How are the living conditions? How's the food? How are roommates selected? Any pieces of advice or anecdotes that might help me out at all would be greatly appreciated...

I've also heard a particularly nasty rumor that Stony Brook is a party school. Please say it isn't so!

Thanks in advance!

-Ethan

Subject:New publication on campus!
Time:12:32 am
Check out the newest publication on campus, the Stony Brook Independent. The Independent aims to objectively cover campus news, features, sports and events, and serve as a sounding board for students' concerns. As a purely online publication, the site will be continuously updated on an almost daily basis, and more importantly, it's open to the entire campus community. Everyone is invited to register for the site, post on our message boards, submit articles, stories, events to our events calendar, or comment on the articles that have already been written. Needless to say, we also welcome anyone that wants to write, take photographs, edit articles or learn more about journalism as well. Check us out! http://www.sbindependent.org

Subject:Tune in to alternative election coverage!
Time:01:13 am
Hey all...tired of homogenized, corporate "election coverage"? Then look no further than WUSB 90.1 FM and SBU-TV (campus channel 20). From 7 pm to 12 midnight we will be airing an Election Night Special that is non-commercial, student-run and student-produced. The special will feature a live call-in interview with Amy Goodman, host of Democracy Now!, live reports from Florida, New Mexico and North Carolina as well as from throughout LI and NYC, in-studio guests from many different campus organizations and from WUSB news and public affairs programs, exit polls, call-ins from listeners and viewers, news updates from Pacifica Radio, Free Speech Radio News and the Associated Press, and much much more, including a few surprises as well :) So after you all go out and vote, be sure to keep it tuned to WUSB and SBU-TV for election coverage you will not get on the corporate airwaves!

Subject:Vote YES for the Student Activity Fee!
Time:02:22 am
Hey everyone,

Beginning this Monday, April 26th at 6 am and lasting until the following Monday at 6 pm, the USG will be holdings its annual elections. One of the things up for vote is the student activity fee, and whether it should be kept mandatory, or be made voluntary. The student activity fee is $82.50 a semester, and funds pretty much all of the clubs and organizations on campus, as well as things like concerts, the Roth Regatta, etc.

Last year, students voted YES for the activity fee, however, students at Stony Brook and every other SUNY school have to vote again this year, as part of a new SUNY-wide mandate in which the activity fee vote must be held every two years, at the same time, across the SUNY system.

Why vote YES to the activity fee? Because a vote to make it voluntary would immediately suck much of what little life exists at Stony Brook out of existance. The #1 complaint on campus is that there isn't much to do, and the #2 complaint is probably the corruption of the USG. In response to that, I should say that a NO vote for the activity fee will essentially mean the end to most clubs and organizations. Imagine a campus with no student media, with no cultural organizations, with no recreational clubs, with no chance of getting a concert (not even Kayne West), perhaps with no more Roth Regatta. Think students just stay in their rooms all day now? There will hardly be reason to leave your room if all these activities die out. In many clubs and organizations, only activity-fee paying members can hold executive positions, while clubs which have material which was purchased with activity fee money will have to return it to the USG if they cannot survive on their own anymore. What few clubs may survive might have to start charging arbitrary membership fees, perhaps $5 or $10 or even $20 a semester or year, which is much more than the share that comes out of one's pocket for each group now. Even that, however, probably won't be enough to raise enough money for clubs to survive.

As far as USG corruption goes, taking away the activity fee is not the solution. The best solution is to elect new representatives. There are plenty of people running this year, and if the many thousands of students that did not vote in last year's dubious elections vote this year, new faces are bound to make it to the top.

Let's ensure a brighter future for all of us and for our campus. Vote YES for the Student Activity Fee.
