Stony Brook Alumni Association – Your Alumni Network Here to Help

Dear Alumni,

On behalf of the entire Stony Brook University Community, I hope this message finds you and your loved ones safe and in good health as we recover from Super Storm Sandy.

Now more than ever is when the power of your alumni network–150,000+ strong– can become a resource to you. I hope you will take advantage of your SBU alumni network as you seek to regain your footing—and to help neighbors in need.

Visit the SBU Alumni Association Facebook page or LinkedIn group (or Tweet to @stonybrookalum) to let your University community know how you’re doing. I encourage you to let your fellow alumni know if you have resources and advice to share with other Seawolves who are without power, Internet, transportation, or basic needs.

We wish all those who were affected by the storm our best for a speedy recovery. You are constantly in our thoughts.

Seawolves for Life. Stronger Together.  

Sincerely,

Dexter A. Bailey Jr.
Vice President
University Advancement

Umuntu, Umuntu Ngabantu – A Journey from South Africa to the USA

BY  | OCTOBER 15, 2012 · 9:07 AM

Two weeks ago former coach and PPI success story, Lesego Andrew Goba, stopped by the DC office. For many of us, it was our first opportunity to meet Goba and hear his incredible journey from South Africa to the USA

On the outskirts of Durban is Inanda, a rural village not unlike many villages in South Africa. Although most houses had no running water, electricity or even telephones, Goba viewed his rural upbringing as a positive. “Scarcity of resources taught me to be grateful for what I had; and inspired me to pursue that which I did not have, fearlessly, because I had nothing to lose.”….

….After graduating Goba got a second BS in nursing and has recently begun working at the Stony Brook Medical Hospital in the Psychiatric Department. He now aspires to continue his education as a psychiatric nurse practitioner (masters level), and get his doctorate. “My education was the paved road that I could now walk on. I had to maximize the opportunity.”
