Club Spotlight: SBU Breakers

Breakdancing isn't the impossibility you thought it was

If you've got the urge to get down, boogie, and funk-it-out like the groovy grouse you are, then Stony Brook University has plenty of options for you. PUSO, KBS, DeJaVu... there are dozens of dance teams filling up a confusingly vast amount of acronymic combinations. So much so, that it can be hard to find the right groups jamming on your frequency.

There are plenty of hidden gems -- smaller groups that boast just as much passion and funk as the funkiest skunks on campus. The SBU Breakers, Stony Brook University's only breakdancing club, is one such hidden gem.

They're a close knit group of people who meet, quietly, at the Health Sciences Center on campus every week. Together they hone their craft for breaking with a passionate drive. If you know how to breakdance, this is definitely the community for you. But if you don't? Fret not! A significant portion of their members started learning right here at Stony Brook. They're here to show you that breakdancing is not only possible -- but one of the best ways to satisfy your seemingly insatiable desire to boogie like no one's watching.

6 Places in New York City Every "Friends" Fan Needs to Visit

Grab a cup of coffee at Central Park.

As a Friends fanatic myself, I often wonder about the places in New York City featured in the various episodes and whether I could actually visit them. Most of them are fictional or no longer exist, but there are a few places you can go to reminisce about your favorite Friends moments. So, here are 6 places in New York City you definitely need to visit as a Friends fan.

1. The Apartment Building, Obviously

The building used for the exterior shot of the apartments in Friends is real, and is located at 90 Bedford Street at the corner of Grove Street in Greenwich Village. It's an obvious must-see.

2. The Pullitzer Fountain

This is the fountain that the friends danced around in for the iconic theme song, and it's located right in Central Park.

3. Bloomingdale's

This is the department where Rachel worked before she moved on to Ralph Lauren, where she met Joshua, and where she started her career in fashion.

4. The Plaza Hotel

This is where Monica and Chandler celebrated their engagement in The One WIth Monica's Thunder, and is actually really gorgeous.

5. The Central Perk Replica

While Central Perk isn't a real coffee shop, a pop-up replica opened up in 2014 on Lafayette Street and it's definitely a must-visit.

6. Chandler's Office

The fictional Chandler works in the real Solow Building, located on West 57th street.

Hannah B. Named The Next Bachelorette: Get Excited!!

Roll Tide.


On the season finale of the hit reality TV show 'The Bachelor' Chris Harrison announced the new Bachelorette to be Hannah Brown, affectionately referred to as "Hannah Beast." Hannah made it far in Colton's season of the Bachelor, but hit some bumps along the way. She was involved in serious drama with costar and fellow pageant competitor Caelynn. Not only is Hannah B. known for drama and tears, she is also known for her awkward and often uncomfortable behavior around the cameras. And let's not forget the most awkward first date and toast of all time...Roll Tide!

Despite her awkward and quirky personality, I think the Alabama native is truly a sweetheart. She cannot be judged based on the controversy that took place between her and Caelynn because no one knows the full truth of the story. In my opinion, no one was completely innocent in their "cat fight" but the way in which each girl handled themselves in the resolution of this drama was mature and, quite frankly, impressive. I think Hannah B's season will be full of more tears and could potentially be very uncomfortable to watch at some moments, but at the end of the say, Hannah B. deserves to find love just like any other 'Bachelor' hopeful. It will definitely be an interesting season to watch, so get excited!!
