“My Life As” speaker series

Three times each semester, top-echelon journalists answer your questions about struggle and success: how they got started, how they keep going and how they got the big stories.

Since 2006, Stony Brook University has welcomed more than 75 prominent journalists from a variety of different publications. The My Life As lectures are open to students of all majors and are free to attend.
