NEW: Watch the film "Stony Brook's First Alumni: Reunion and Reflections" From June 6 to June 8, 2014, a reunion weekend was held at Stony Brook University
and at Planting Fields at Oyster Bay (first campus), in celebration of the 50th anniversary
of the classes of 1961 to 1964, and reuniting the Founders Group, classes of 1961-1966.
At Planting Fields, alumni were interviewed about their experiences and reflections
