The Stony Brook Music Department’s inaugural Graduate Music Symposium, “Perspectives on Performance,” held February 11-12, 2011, was a huge success! This interdisciplinary event provided an opportunity for graduate students to present their work professionally in a scholarly environment. One of the highlights was Dr. Ellen Rosand’s (Yale University) keynote address, which was an hour in duration, followed by an insightful Q and A session.
SECOND ANNUAL, PROGRESS IN MARINE AND ATMOSPHERIC SCIENCES -GRADUATE STUDENT SYMPOSIUM-

We had several speakers (including graduate students and professors), two wonderful musicians, refreshments and about 50 attendants at the dedication ceremony of the Irina Tarabac Memorial Tree on Wednesday, October 20th 2010 during campus lifetime.
The Department of Linguistics and The Graduate Linguistics Society hosted our semiannual Linguistics Lecture Series on November 4, 2010 6:00-8:00pm in Humanities 1006.
We held two career development events for graduate international students in October and November. The first event was on Wednesday October 27 and we invite guest speakers from career center and international office. For the second event, the speakers are stony brook alumni and it was on Saturday November 06.
The 4th annual Chemistry Halloween Bash was held on Friday October 29th from 5-7pm in the Grad Chemistry Learning Center (Room 312). Approximately 55 graduate students were in attendance, along with a number of professors. Costume contests, a pie eating contest, and a mummy wrap contest were all done in great fun! All of the food was finished except for a few pieces of cake. Everyone had a great time and some of the costumes were really quite good. We had our first female take part in the pie eating contest and she did a great job!
We had a full room for the Wednesday afternoon talk, with approximately 60 people in attendance. There were around 35 people for the Thursday talk. Around 75% of the attendees at both talks were graduate students. Dr. Fortin met individually with students and faculty during the day on Wednesday and Thursday. We had two dinner receptions during her visit, one of which was for graduate students and post docs only. Both receptions were very well attended and I heard many people comment that Dr. Fortin was a good choice for an invited speaker as she is very open to students.
Dr. Flip Froelich arrived on Tuesday night and greeted by the Okubo steering committee. On Wednesday morning faculty, staff, and students introduced themselves to Flip over brunch. Following brunch for graduate students (~50), was a students only seminar entitled “Froelich's Biggest Hits and Worst Blunders” which was geared to giving students advise on their career paths. This was a very interesting talk filled with many unique stories and perspectives on pursuing a career in research. Around 70 graduate students attended this particular talk.
