March 2011: Explore Stony Brook Summer Camp: A program to bring international high school students to Stony Brook this coming summer was approved by the University.

March 2011: Spreading the Word About the President's April Receptions in China: A SB Chinese faculty member said the belief is that SB has the second largest number of alumni in China of all American universities. This trip will be the University's first major attempt to find our alumni. If you know of any organizations where SB alumni can be reached, please use the University flyer on the link below to distribute the word. Ruiqin Miao, for example, is contacting SORSA, the Shanghai Overseas Returned Scholars Association, and the Shanghai Bo Ai He Xie Club.

A PhD graduate of SB, she graduated in 2005 and is now an Associate Professor of Linguistics at the School of Foreign Languages, Jiao Da.
