- Stony Brook Homecoming 2013 on October 15th, 2013
On Saturday, October 5th, Stony Brook University hosted the 2013 Homecoming Football game and Wolfstock. The football game was against Bryant University and ultimately SBU Seawolves came out victorious! We definitely got our “Red” on at this game.
A historical attendance record was noted in LaValle Stadium- 11,224 fans flooded the seats in the stadium, where capacity in the stadium for seating is approximately 8,000. Additionally, this game was especially important to me since it marked my senior year homecoming experience.
And what an experience it was indeed. I had the opportunity of singing the national anthem at this game. Was I nervous? You better believe it!!! Would I do it again? In a heartbeat. I love singing for Stony Brook- red runs in my blood, as some say. But overall, the experience was very rewarding, memorable and I was truly honored. Stony Brook made one of my dreams come true.
And just a word to the wise- take advantage of all the opportunities SBU has to offer you- in academics and extracurricular activities (i.e. clubs and organizations). Never wonder “What If?” and always strive to make a difference! Check out my national anthem performance here: SBU 2013 Homecoming- National Anthem
