Stay Warm Stony Brook

It was 26 degrees and clear this evening at Stony Brook University as students finished up their days on campus. After a couple of snow days and delayed openings, it was nice to have a normal day of classes with the weather staying out of the way. In between classes there were students moving from building to building, but during classes it was quiet in the academic mall. Students definitely did not want to be outside if they didn’t have to.

The Melville Library always has people coming and going. It’s warm and full of life. If you can’t find a seat on the main level, you can always try the Main Stacks for a more secluded area. I took a time lapse video to show some students on the move.

Stay inside and study at the Melville Library. #Jrn320

Instead of waiting at the Union bus stop Carmel Gustave and Widnie Simon relaxed inside at the Union until their bus arrived.

With a coffee in one hand and cell phone in the other, Carmel Gustave, a senior Psychology major, kept checking the time. Gustave and a friend were waiting for the bus, instead of facing the cold on foot.

“You have to have a coat — not a jacket,” she said. “If the soles of my shoes aren’t keeping in the heat, my feet go numb!” Gustave also said that comfortable shoes are a must when walking around campus this winter.

“Well I’m always cold even if I have ten layers on,” said her friend, Widnie Simon, a Senior Health Science major. “I’m from Haiti so I hate this cold.” She wore a grey wool winter hat that covered her ears and kept her hands in her pockets.

The line at Starbucks was long and people were filling up the waiting area anticipating their warm coffees. Starbucks is a trendy —and cozy— hangout for students. Some people will do anything for a cappuccino at the end of the day.

Starbucks is so crowded! How is everyone else keeping warm today? #Jrn320
