How did you discover The Stony Brook School, and what made you want to attend?
I discovered SBS through my dad because he graduated in 1984. Growing up, he always took me to the alumni events on and off campus. I decided to attend SBS because my dad always told me that the time he spent here was the best two years of his life. I constantly heard about the amazing faculty-student relationships and I wanted to be part of the family that I had heard so much about.
What are some positive changes in your life that you can directly connect to your experience at SBS?
Through SBS, I really grew into the leader that I never naturally was. The Workjob Program especially has taught me responsibility and what it means to expand your own job requirements for the betterment of the community. SBS has taught me what true contribution to community means and what to value in a community.
What is your favorite off-campus activity (within walking distance)?
My favorite off-campus activity is probably walking down to the village with my friends to go get Crazy Beans for breakfast or just walk around by Avalon Park. It's always a really relaxing time especially in the beginning of the year and the end of the year when we have more free time.
