I would tell prospective students that Stony Brook University is a culmination of several great opportunities. The top notch education and professors that Stony Brook has to offer is accompanied by great advisors who are there to see you succeed.

wen naName: Wen Na
High School: Ticonderoga High School
Academic Year: Sophomore
Year: Health Science

Favorite spot on campus? Why?
During the warmer days of the school year, I like to sit by the water fountain outside of the Wang Center. It is my goto place for when I want to relax and have some alone time. The rush of the water as it flows from the fountain, helps alleviate the stress that have built up from the workload of my classes. It is the place I escape to for comfort.

What clubs/ organizations do I belong to?
Although I attend many of the general body meetings of clubs such as the Chinese Association at Stony Brook and the Japanese Student Organization, I am mostly faithful to Asian Student Alliance, an organization of which I am a Freshman Representative for. It was with the interactions of this club that I have been able to step far outside of my initial comfort zone, and into one that offers more to me. It is given me a family away from my own family.

Favorite place to grab a bite on campus?
Roth Cafe has always been the popular hangout spot for my friends and I. During dinner, we would sit for hours talking about our lives, catching up on homework assignments and grabbing frozen yogurt from Red Mango before parting our ways back to our dorms. The Cafe has a social environment that is enjoyable.
