After five years without a pool, Stony Brook’s Administration has decided to close its barely-opened pool, opting instead to build the largest on-campus Starbucks in the nation.. The University closed down the pool for renovations in 2012 and for years the pool room of the athletic center went unused and abandoned. The University finally reopened the pool at the end of the 2017 spring semester, but since then there have been some major changes. The University expected a huge rush of students to the opening of the much awaited pool. However, after so many years of being poolless, the University had inadvertently attracted a non aquatic student body. In short, Stony Brook students aren’t interested in swimming. Only six students showed up to the pool’s grand opening. Since then, pool attendance has been dwindling greatly.. There is however something else that students want more than aquatic athletic spaces. Coffee.. Stony…

Students concerned about health risks of drinking coffee can now consume it through IV drip instead. STONY BROOK, NY – It’s a well known fact that drinking coffee has its dangers, which is why many Stony Brook University students are now opting to inject it directly into their veins. The trend comes as part of the school’s initiative to use its status as a leading health sciences school to advocate healthier living. “These caffeinated beverages are highly marketable and seen everywhere in the media,” says second year clinical lab sciences major Jacqueline Clark. “We think it’s irresponsible to promote such unhealthy habits, so we’re taking it upon ourselves to promote a better way to get these chemicals into our bloodstreams.” Students who have adopted this new technique have reported overwhelmingly positive results. “My resting pulse rate beats as quick as a heart attack, but at least I’m never dehydrated,” said…

So, let’s rap. I work hard and a nice cup of Lemonade Cookie Frappuccino is all I want. But now the holiday cup is only red, and I’m okay with that. Really, I am. I’m completely fine with it. Although I can understand why they did it, Starbucks forgot about the children. Their pure and little brains can’t comprehend why the snowflakes and pine trees are no longer on daddy’s red cup. “Where’s Santa?” my precious gift from above asked me when she saw my plain, red cup. “Why’s Starbucks killing Jesus?” asks my cute little accident. Good questions. Jesus was the man, and we need to respect him with a proper image of Christmas. We need trees in our homes; a big, red Norwegian guy coming down our chimneys and a coffee cup that displays our beliefs. Starbucks is killing Christ, and, although I may understand the context, my…

Getting paid for work is the standard in today’s employment world, with the one exception being internships. For some, it means the stereotypical run to Starbucks or manning the printer for the day making copies. For others, internships can provide a valuable insight into a potential industry that the student may want to pursue, or not pursue, upon graduation. Unfortunately, many internships come at a cost, and not to the employer. Unpaid internships are still a thing, and frankly, it’s wrong on both moral and some legal standards. Students have bills to pay for school and living expenses, and in most cases, they pay transportation and food costs if the internship is located far from home. Here are a few tips and tricks that I have learned over the years that have led to finding and landing the good internships that pay: Build your own website. Don’t rely on LinkedIn…

There’s a secret underground map found online. Within its pages are lists upon lists of different and sweet concoctions made up of sugars, creams, liquid sweeteners and artificial flavorings. The secret is found inside the local Starbucks. Legend has it that years ago, Starbucks employees came together at their own individual shops and created their own drinks using the ingredients available to them behind the counter. With the power of the Internet, employees all over the world have begun to post their creations to the web. “I know that the secret menu was created by other Starbucks baristas with way too much time on their hands,” Nicky Ramdeholl, a former barista said. “The most bizarre I’ve heard of is the Raspberry Cheesecake Latte… Just Google it and you’ll understand.” Although this idea of specially made shakes may seem amazing for sweet tooth lovers out there, employees of the coffee chain…
