If you could tell a new or incoming student just ONE thing about Syracuse, what would it be?

One of the most amazing aspects of Syracuse University is the alumni network and the willingness of the Orange Family to help each other out. I have made connections with both alumni and current students, which have proved to be invaluable in finding internships/jobs and just in life in general. I would advise new students to be kind to everyone and keep in touch with friends.

What is your favorite thing about Syracuse?

My favorite part about Syracuse is the Orange Spirit. The ultimate reason I chose to attend Syracuse over other schools was the real “campus feel” and how it felt as though everyone who was here truly adored it. If I am walking in a random city, across the country, in an Syracuse shirt, I am guaranteed to be stopped at least once, probably more, by someone saying “GO ORANGE!” It is a magical spirit we have here.

What is your favorite Syracuse memory?

I have far too many favorite memories at Syracuse. I know it is a cliché and everyone says it, but college was probably the best time of my life. I love Syracuse University, and my professors and all of my friends so very much. I am so emotional about graduating.
