    I am also from Nassau County. I live in Hicksville. I went to college at URI, but I worked at Stony Brook University Hospital for a year. I am now employed at a North Shore Hospital in Syosset. Its great to hear from another person in my area. I am leaving for SGU on the 17th. By the way I'm a 25 yr male, my first name is Erol. Anyway, keep in touch and let me know if you have any good advice or if you just want to say something intersting. Cheers.

    Hi,

    My husband is starting in January, like he said before...but because we are married, and have a 3 year old, we have to live off campus. We have found an apartment already. They were really great down there helping us find a place to live. We are flying from Syracuse, to San Juan..to Grenada. We called all over, and couldn't find anything between the 9th and 16th..every flight was booked. Did you call American? They offer a discount to SGU students...you just have to call the school and get a code to give the airlines. Also, when talking to the airline, you can't go thru international travel when booking, you have to go thru meeting services to book with the discount code. It's something like $400 off the ticket. I would advise you to call quickly...we called all over...we were even willing to drive to Boston to leave...and everything was booked solid,aparently because there are only a few flights the fly into Grenada. That is why we are leaving the 8th. I guess it is ok, because it will give us a chance to get acclimated to the area..and relax for a week or 2 before classes set in. Good luck...and keep in touch! :)

    The Dr's I work with are buying the kit, and the medical stuff I need. So I am so glad, I save on that expense.

    Hello.
    I graduated sgu in 1999 and am now a resident in rad onc.

    Dont buy a med kit (unless its been a gift to you!). Really all your need in your second year is a stethascope. Unless money is no object, dont let all the shiney new toys part your from your cash. (I did by the way). ITs a nice rite of passage but not practically necessary. Please free to ask any q's you might have about the place. Also check out <a href="http://travel.to/sgusom" target="_blank">http://travel.to/sgusom</a> and <a href="http://network54.com/hide/forum/10067" target="_blank">http://network54.com/hide/forum/10067</a> (linked to the first site which is mine).
    All the best,
    Steph
