Floyd Academy students under the leadership of science educator Terri Randall and physical education teacher Thomas Stines recently visited their friends at Stony Brook University to get a taste of a day in the life of a college student!
Resident Hall staff mentors met with Floyd Academy students and shared information about the admissions process and college life, and encouraged students to take ownership of their post-high school choices and experiences.
Students also had the opportunity to tour a freshman residence hall, visit the new student union building and the UNITI (United Nationalities in Transcending Ideologies) Cultural Center, enjoyed lunch in the dining facilities, and concluded their day at the campus recreation center, which features pickleball and basketball courts, crafts, board games and more. Mr. Stines led a spirited pickleball match with students!
Floyd Academy students had a great time getting a taste of college life! Special thanks to the numerous Stony Brook University employees who kindly met with students, sharing their expertise and showing them around including Richard Gatteau, vice president of student affairs; Catherine-Mary Rivera, assistant vice president of campus residences; Michelle Singletary, director of residential education; Gareth Shumack, director of residential education and so many others!
