As a proud alumnus, I give to Stony Brook University because I am repaying what the school has given me in education, memories and special bonds during my undergraduate years. My alma mater continues to give me wonderful things to look forward to such as Homecoming, alumni networking events and making great strides on and off campus. I love that Stony Brook University provides opportunities for the alumni to contribute to the school’s present and future. When one sums up what Stony Brook has given me, the value cannot be quantified to any amount. But I repay the university financially, volunteer my time and continue to be part of the community.
