Port Jefferson to Become Seawolves Country

If you see Seawolves prowling around Port Jefferson, don’t be frightened. It’s all part of a plan to team up with Stony Brook University to promote the village to students and faculty of the school and get residents and visitors to see all the campus has to offer.
According to Jill Russell, Port Jefferson’s public relations representative, the village is popular with students so strengthening that bond made sense.
"We can stay connected and leverage all we have to offer here," Russell said.
The relationship opens opportunities for local businesses to cater to the population of approximately 25,000 students and faculty members at the university. Seawolves branded merchandise will be sold in local stores and signage declaring Port Jefferson as “Seawolves Country” will be put around the village and the campus.
