Correct me if I’m wrong, but is that not just called history?
People rub against the walls/pipes by accident…. It’s just one of the many reasons it’s not safe. And if cops catch you down there (and they do patrol there) you can get in serious trouble. I’m just trying to look at the safety risks from all angles so people are informed. :]
I’ve heard a bunch of stories of people touching things down there and getting fiberglass in their hands. I know for a fact the CompSci entrance leads to the tunnels, so maybe you just took a wrong turn or something?
I know there’s an entrance at the CompSci building, and one somewhere by the Zebra Path/Chem building. I really have no interest in getting covered in fiberglass, so I’ve never been, but from what I hear, you really have to know someone who already knows where the entrance is.
You can get to the rooftop of pretty much any building if you try hard enough. :] As far as more “secrets” goes, there isn’t really much out there that hasn’t been taken over by stoners. There’s a little bench area in the woods across from Kelly if you go deep enough, you can try geocaching, and uhh that’s really all I can think of. Does anyone else have any ideas?
F.I.N.A.L.S. = Fuck, I Never Actually Learned Shit.
To build 2 million square feet is in itself a task, but to relate 2 million square feet to the individuals within, rather than produce rooms with numbers on them is really our task. We have to create what I call ‘villages of space.’
- Bertrand Goldberg, Conversations With Architects, 1973
I’ve really grown to love the unusual architecture of Stony Brook University’s Health Sciences Center and University Hospital complex, designed by renown architect Bertrand Goldberg in the 1960s-1970s. The incredible scope of the project, unique use of space and bold design have given me a great sense of appreciation of the complex.
The architect’s description of the project is well worth the read.
HEY STONY BROOK-
You see these letters around campus. You hear about them in your classes and whatnot. Maybe a few of us have come in and done presentations on Stress and you’ve made stress balls with us. Or more likely, you’ve been asked by one of us if you would like to take a depression screening by us in the SAC.
Want to find out a little bit more about what these letters mean and what peer education is? Want to know why we do what we do? Come to the Campus Rec Center’s Multipurpose Room at 11 AM on Monday!
(When you walk into the CRC, go left through the turnstiles and we’re the last room on the left before the Zumba room!)
