VP of Communication Press Release

USG Twitter Press Release Apology


Stony Brook Undergraduate Student Government Twitter 4/29-4/30

STONY BROOK, NY – On Saturday, April 26th, members of the Undergraduate Student
Government attended the Stony Brook Relay for Life. During the event, we decided to hold a
service auction to raise money for charity, and raffled several USG Services including: Being
President for a day, being a Roth Regatta judge, and control of our twitter for one day.

The winner of the USG Twitter Auction, a student who is not associated with USG, was
given control on Tuesday April 29th
at ~8pm, and they proceeded to post a tweet “Guess
who’s coming back to Stony Brook to give the Commencement speech at Graduation this
year…@billclinton!” Obviously this tweet is false, but many students may have believed it.

On Wednesday April 30th
, at approximately 8:45AM, the USG Twitter posted an edited press
release posing as the University’s Presidents Office which claimed the University is in
danger of losing its accreditation, and has failed parts of the Middle States Accreditation
process. This was brought to our attention at 9:30AM. Immediately after discovering this,
we deleted the tweet and regained control to our Twitter account. The edited press release
was entirely false and was intended to be satirical.

USG would like to sincerely apologize to President Stanley and the entire Stony Brook
University community for the tweets that our organization has put out over the past 24 hours.
The tweet was completely unacceptable and USG does not condone such false and hurtful
statements to be made.

As of 11AM, the USG twitter account had tweeted several apologies to our readers as well as
clarifying that the University is NOT in any such trouble.

We have the upmost pride and respect in our University. Going forward, USG will make sure
that such instances will never occur again.

About the Undergraduate Student Government (USG): We represent and serve more than 16,000
Undergraduate students at SUNY Stony Brook University. The USG is responsible for appropriating student
activity fees to approximately 160 funded clubs and organizations in order to create a sense of community on
campus and to enhance student life. For more than 50 years, we have been an organizing force for student
power on campus through activism and representation throughout important decision-making bodies at the
