Nakiya Drago

Regina web Director

I am excited to have re-joined the Office of New Student Programs in 2018! As a proud alumna of Stony Brook University, Class of 2013; B.A. in Sociology, coming back to SBU feels like coming home. Prior to returning to SBU, I worked at Providence College and John Carroll University in Residence Life. I earned my M.Ed. in Higher Education and Student Affairs Administration from the University of Vermont. As a former OL, I'm honored to serve in this role, and to work with new students and Orientation Leaders  as they transition into a new stage of their lives!

Megan DiGioia

Coordinator of Family Programs & Services


I joined the Office of New Student Programs in 2019. Before starting my role as the Coordinator of Family Programs & Services, I worked as a Career Coach in the Stony Brook University Career Center. I received my M.S.W. in Social Welfare from SBU in 2013 with a specialization in Student Community Development. I completed my B.S. in Psychology at SUNY Oneonta where I first developed my love for higher education. I am excited to be working with parents and families to support their student as they transition into college!

I’m so happy to be able to join the Office of New Student Programs this Spring as a Graduate Coordinator. I graduated from Marist College in 2020 with a Masters of Arts in Communications with a concentration in Public Relations and a minor in Global Studies. I’m currently pursuing a Masters of Arts in Higher Education Administration here at SBU. After one transfer, two semesters abroad, and starting grad school, I’ve participated in 5 orientations, so I’m super excited to bring my experiences to the team!
