Stony Brook makes winter fun with first ever Winterfest

Last week, Dr. Timothy Ecklund, Dean of Students, sent out an email to the campus community announcing the establishment of Stony Brook Winterfest.

This festival was created in order to relieve the stress that most students faced during the first few weeks of school when we were bombarded with snow.

The event is scheduled for February 28 from 12 to 4 p.m. and will include a slew of activities. Ice skating, carnival rides, movies, and food are some things that students can expect when going to Winterfest.

Since this is the first time the university is putting on an event like this, it is definitely worthy of news coverage and since there are plans of having carnival rides and other actives, makes it the perfect place to take some photos of students enjoying themselves in such a busy time.

A photo list featuring images of the activities the students are doing and quotes from students during the event would show those who were unable to make it to the event what they have missed, and what to expect if there is another Winterfest next year. During the winter, students are normally rushing to classes and studying hard for midterms. Most don’t have time to let loose and have fun. Showing what Winterfest had to offer may inspire students to become more active in the events that the university holds for them.
