In conjunction with the ongoing observance of the 50th anniversary of the creation of the Shinnecock Hills campus, Stony Brook Southampton will host the traditional holiday lighting of the windmill and reception in Chancellors Hall on Friday, December 6, from 5 to 7 pm.
This year’s Windmill Lighting program, free and open to the public, will feature tours of the new Marine Sciences Center, the Doctor of Physical Therapy Labs (DPT) and the iconic windmill, named this year a Literary Landmark. The festivities will also include music from the Stony Brook University Pep Band, an appearance by Seawolves mascot Wolfie, seasonal refreshments, a caricaturist, balloon artist and crafts for children.
Following the Windmill Lighting and reception, the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (SoMAS) will present a lecture on the New York State Resiliency Institute for Storms and Emergencies (NYS RISE) in Duke Lecture Hall at 7:30 pm. The presentation will highlight the goals, objectives and activities of NYS RISE and will examine the role that SoMAS will play in ensuring that New York’s coastal communities and ecosystems are strengthened to protect their health and viability in the event of future storm devastation.
