Sure, when classes are over for the day your mind isn’t on “I can’t wait to come back!” mode, it’s more like “Is it the weekend yet?” but there are some perks of being a student.
Every two weeks on Friday the Ammerman campus activities board (CAB) hosts movie night. Movies are shown at 7 p.m. in the Islip Arts building in Room 115. Admission is free for everyone! Upcoming movies are “The Tale Of Despereaux”(April 3) and “Bedtime Stories”(April 17). You can call Campus Activities at (631)451-4375 for more information.

According to Prof. Silverman, History professor, Suffolk students are welcomed to use Stony Brook University’s computer labs and library with an SCCC ID card. Take advantage!
“It’s a way to kill time and have fun when you get out of your morning classes and have to wait for the 12:30 class to begin!”says Shannon Enright, a liberal arts student. On campus, you can find practically any type of club. You can join as many as you want and they usually meet during Wednesday’s common hour of 11-12:15 p.m.
