The club will meet at the Ammerman Campus in Selden on March 29th, the bus will leave by 8 am. The Nassau Coliseum has been a landmark on Long Island for over for 40 years. In its years it has been the home of the New York Nets of the American Basketball Association and later they became part of the National Basketball Association. The Coliseum has also been the home to the New York Islanders since the franchise started in 1972.  The Coliseum does not only cover sporting events. It has been the host of Disney on ice, the monster truck derby, and has also been the host of some big WWE wrestling events. The Coliseum has a lot of great history and holds a lot of pride. However, they are in the means of trying to rebuild, but with a proposal turned down on August 1, 2011. If you want to take the field trip contact Professor Bosco at 451-4264, or e-mail him at boscon@sunysuffolk.edu.
