SUNY Day 2013
Stony Brook University juniors Bath-Seva Sholomson, Peter Milien and graduate student Pierre Albert traveled to the state capital for SUNY Day 2013, representing SBU in legislative meetings. The trio met with a host of lawmakers in Albany to discuss the importance of the Tuition Assistance Program, their appreciation of the NY SUNY 2020 initiative and campus facilities.
In addition to meetings with lawmakers, they also met SUNY Chancellor Nancy Zimpher and SUNY Board of Trustees Chair H. Carl McCall. And, they took a self-guided tour of the state Capitol and attended a SUNY reception with legislators, alumni and friends of SUNY.
SUNY Day is an annual event in Albany that brings representatives from the 64-campus public higher education system to Albany to bring awareness to state lawmakers of what is happening at the campus level and to discuss higher education policy with them.
