The Statesman is the newspaper of record and the oldest newspaper at Stony Brook University, a flagship university of the SUNY (State University of New York) system. Founded in 1957 as the Sucolian at the State University Campus On Long Island at Oyster Bay -- the precursor to Stony Brook University-- The Statesman has consistently lived up to its reputation as the only media outlet at Stony Brook University that reputably and fairly reports on issues concerning the campus community. Since its founding, The Statesman has received many awards for its superb work in journalism


Before Stony Brook University was located in Stony Brook, NY, it was located in Oyster Bay, NY, albeit with a different name. In 1959, The Sucolian, as it was then known, changed its name to The Statesman. Three years later in 1962, The Statesman, along with most of the State University College on Long Island, moved to a new location in Stony Brook, NY. Like other college campuses on campus, The Statesman was very leftist, often running stories criticizing the University administration.
