Joanne Buonocore

Campus Minister

Hello! I’m the Catholic Campus Minister at Stony Brook, and beginning my sixth year in ministry here. Each day I feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to meet all the different students on-campus, and I believe that I’ve got the best job in the world! Never hesitate to drop by my office room N5576 in the Melville Library- whether it’s just to chat, say “hello”, or ask questions! Usually, I’m on-campus Monday through Thursday from late morning until the evening. I’m looking forward to another exciting school-year and the opportunities to meet new friends through service and prayer!


Beth D’Alessandro


I’m an Anthropology major with Religious Studies and Spanish minors. I’ve been involved in Catholic Campus Ministry since freshman year and I’m a senior now. As a sophomore I was Vice President and this year I’m President of Newman club. My favorite thing that we do is our mission based service work, here on long island, throughout the states, and internationally. I’ve made such a great faith family here at Stony Brook University and we welcome new members into our family!

Hi, I’m Kaitlyn! I’m a junior English major with a journalism minor. This is my first year as Vice President, but I’ve been involved with Newman Club since my freshman year. I feel so blessed to have found my home away from home here and I hope you will too!

Hi there, I’m Suzi and I’m a sophomore majoring in Economics and Geology. I’ve been involved with Newman since my first day on campus and hope to see you at our meetings!

Hello, I’m Charlie and I’m a senior majoring in Computer Science. I’ve been participating in Newman Club since my sophomore year when I was introduced to the club through small groups, and I’ve become more involved in the last year. I hope to make Newman Club a more popular club on campus this year so that more people can join the great community we have!
