Stony Brook Joins Community for Rt. 25A Clean Up
More than 60 Stony Brook University students answered the call to help clean up the Long Island Railroad station and surrounding area on Saturday, April 11, doubling the number of volunteers from the University than in previous semesters. With so many helping hands, the garbage cans were quickly overflowing with stuffed bags of litter and debris.
The clean up is organized through the Greening of Route 25A Committee in partnership with the Civic Association of Stony Brook and the Setaukets. The University supports the event with student volunteers each semester who remove trash, prune bushes and plant flowers. This year, a large and diverse group of students from many clubs and organizations such as Phi Chi Epsilon Fraternity; Pre-Med Society; Theta Tau; Professional Co-Ed Engineering Fraternity; Hermandad de Sigma Iota Alpha; Incorporata; Circle K International; Sigma Beta Honor Society; Sigma Delta Tau; and Alpha Kappa Delta Phi as well as students from the School of Journalism joined Suffolk County Legislator Kara Hahn and Councilwoman Valerie Cartright in beautifying the area.
