Kirshani Graduate Assistant 

I am very excited to join the Office of Student Orientation & Family Programs as a Graduate Assistant. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Social Sciences from Farmingdale State College in May 2017, and I am currently a graduate student in the Higher Education Administration Master’s degree program at Stony Brook University. I was an Orientation Leader during my undergraduate studies at Farmingdale, so joining Stony Brook’s Office of Student Orientation & Family Programs was the perfect transition for me.
