Alexandra Archambault ’18 | @OurSyracuseU

Alexandra Archambault ’18 is majoring in newspaper and online journalism in the Newhouse School and information management and technology in the iSchool. She is from Philadelphia, PA.

Alex is on the Otto The Orange mascot team, the University’s student social media team (#44Social) is an editor for Jerk Magazine. She studied abroad in London her junior year and was an intern at Philadelphia Magazine.

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.

 

Kathryn Miller ’18 | @OurSyracuseU

Kathryn Miller ’18 is studying citizenship & civic engagement and policy studies at the Maxwell School. She is from Doylestown, PA and transferred to Syracuse in the fall of 2014. 

Kathryn is involved with University 100, the Syracuse University American Red Cross Club, and the Syracuse Women’s Club Lacrosse Team. She has interned at the Central New York United Way and the Office of Admissions.

What is your favorite thing about Syracuse?

My favorite thing about Syracuse is the sense of campus community that we have. I can walk through campus and always see at least 3 or more people that I know. Going to a larger school but still being able to know people and say hi on the way to class or to grab a bite to eat always makes me smile, knowing I can catch up with people throughout the day. Building off of this, my absolute favorite part is when the sun is shining (whether it is warmer or not) and students and friends are all out on the Quad or in the various areas of grass throughout campus just hanging out with their fellow students and friends. It makes the campus seem a bit smaller.

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

Take advantage of all of the resources that this campus has to offer. Whether it be one of the 300+ student organizations, offices all over campus that are here to better your time or your future career choices, your papers in the writing center, or just checking in at Schine to get your resume or cover letter checked. This campus is here to assist you in all of your needs and is willing to help you in any matter. There are students that have never been to any of these locations, or haven’t ever asked for help, so I’d tell the new students or transfers that taking advantage of these resources will benefit your collegiate experience and improve your time here, without question.

 

Good morning Syracuse!!! My name is Kathryn Miller (but you can call me Kat) and I am a senior studying Citizenship & Civic Engagement and Policy Studies in the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs! For the next week, you’re going to be seeing a slice of my life and learn about my experiences here at Syracuse! I am a transfer student to SU, but I am originally from Doylestown, Pennsylvania (go birds)! During the academic year, I have the pleasure of keeping busy in a variety of activities that we offer here on campus; I am a co-captain of the Syracuse women’s club lacrosse team and serve as the external Chief of Staff of Student Association! I also have the honor of being a University 100 tour guide here on campus and was a Senior Intern for the Office of Admissions. I’m super excited to be sharing my life with you this week and for you to get a glimpse of what my experience at this wonderful university has been like. This picture is from our spring reception for newly admitted students!! We are welcoming over 1,400 admitted students and their families to campus this week, I’m super excited to meet as many of them as I can! -KM #syracuseuniversity #syracusebound @syracuseu @artsciencessu #maxwell #cusenation #classof2018

Good morning everyone! One of my favorite places that I’ve been able to spend my four years studying is at the Maxwell School! There are so many amazing programs within this school it was so hard for me to choose, but my freshman/ transfer year I was able to take PAF 101 which opened the flood gates to my passion for public service and policy studies. Professor Bill Coplin has always been a huge help in all of my endeavors and really allowed me to explore my interests through this course! If you’re looking for a great class to take next fall where you can have this beautiful view as you walk up to lecture a few days a week, I recommend it to every student, no matter what your course of study may be! The coursework at this university is amazing, and I’m SO glad I’ve gotten the opportunity to spend time here. This won’t be the last you see of Eggers hall and Maxwell hall this week, stay tuned later today to see more! -KM • • • #maxwell #syracuse #artsandscience #lincoln #cusenation

Inside the halls of Maxwell, I am a Citizenship & Civic Engagement major, which is the newest major in the Maxwell school! This is a picture of me and my cohort working on our senior action plans! Each CCE student is responsible for choosing a project or area of study and can create any product they want from it! This group of people is absolutely amazing (and they’re not all even pictured!!) and we have worked so hard around the Syracuse community with various organizations as interns, volunteers and temporary employees to enhance both our personal experiences and our action plans. My action plan was to work with the Sustainability Office and the student body living in residence halls on campus to promote energy efficiency and becoming mindful of our carbon footprint! SU plans to be carbon neutral by 2040, and our students play a great role in this. CCE is an amazing experience and I’m so thankful for the lifelong friends I’ve made in the program. -KM • • • #syracuse #greencampus #energy #maxwell #actionplan @artsciencessu

one of my favorite experiences that I’ve been a part of here at Syracuse is Student Association. At the beginning of the semester, I had the privilege of joining SA and am one of the two Chief of Staff members. (hi Janine!!) Pictured here are the members of our cabinet and assembly of the 61st legislative session. Student Association is an amazing way to get involved on campus and help create positive changes and get your voice heard at the place that means so much to all of us. This week are elections for our new President, Vice President and Comptroller candidates! If you log on to your MySlice, you can vote for your next elected officials of SA! This organization does so many wonderful projects, I’m honored to be apart of it and for this group of people to welcome me into their family this semester. If you want your voices heard and to be involved in something amazing, vote today!! Voting will close tomorrow on MySlice so don’t waste a moment! You can find members of SA in Whitman today tabling for students to vote! -KM • • • #studentassociation #syracuse #elections #studentgovernment #cuse

For as long as I can remember, I have been an athlete. For about 18 years now, I’ve been playing lacrosse (it feels crazy saying that!!) When I transferred to Syracuse, I tried out for the club lacrosse team. I didn’t have any friends quite yet at school, I was still really adjusting, and then I tried out and immediately felt at home. As a four year player, I’ve gotten to spend time with amazing women at this school. We all are involved in so many different things, but a few days a week we come together and play the sport we’ve loved for such a long time. We travel all over the east coast, and this spring semester finished 6-3, one of our best seasons ever! These are just a few pictures of my time playing lacrosse here and some of the amazing teammates I’ve gotten to play with. Being a leader on this team has been an honor, and as we had our last tournament this past weekend, I’m so excited for where the program is going to go! I highly recommend if you want to try out for a club team here at SU, do it! It’s one of the most enjoyable experiences of my collegiate career, and these girls absolutely have my heart. -KM • • • #cuse #clubsports #syracuse #otto #senior

An experience that I am truly grateful for was my transfer opportunity. As a transfer student to the university, we have a unique opportunity to live with other transfers from all over the country and share our first year experience together. Pictured is my roommate, Isabel, and our other amazing friend and floor-mate Andrew! After our transfer year, we stayed living on south campus together and kept very close in touch being in side-by-side units! Coming from all different universities and backgrounds, transfer students have the chance to get involved in so many activities and bond together through our love for SU. I am so grateful for meeting these two grads, as well as so many other transfer students! -KM • • • #transfer #syracuseuniversity #cusenation #skyhall #friends

Hey everyone! Kennedy again. I just wanted to tell you a little more about me! I consider myself a hybrid child of Miami, FL and Dallas, TX. I am currently a senior triple majoring in Advertising, Citizenship & Civic Engagement, and Women’s & Gender Studies. When I’m not working on capstones, you’ll find me in Dellplain Hall where I am finishing up my third year as a Resident Advisor! This picture is from my time in Washington, DC during Summer 2016. I had the amazing opportunity to be a Marketing Intern for the truth initiative. I fell in absolute love with the city and was proud to rep the Orange there while meeting so many other DC alumni! My time at Syracuse University has been absolutely incredible. From being a part of the Remembrance Scholars Program to being one of nine from the Miami 3 POSSE Cohort – my time at Syracuse has been filled with opportunities, people, and memories that I’ll never forget. This week serves as a way to look back on these past few years while also paying it forward. -KP #DC #OrangePride #summer

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

Be unapologetically yourself, and you will find a place and a family here at Syracuse.

Hello everyone! My name is Charles Frederick Keppler, but you can call me Cheeks, and for the next week I'll be showing you a little bit about my life here at Syracuse University. I am a senior in @engineeringsu triple majoring in Aerospace Engineering, Physics, and Applied Mathematics. I grew up in Bennington, Vermont, then moved to New York City for intermediate and high school. During the school year I keep myself busy with a number of extracurricular activities; I am in an all-male a cappella group called Otto Tunes and serve as co-recruitment for the University 100 (the tour guides).

Today we're having a training session for a new class of SU tour guides. Being a tour guide often times means being one of the only students that prospective students get to meet and interact with. By sharing my love for Syracuse University with them, I can spread the joy and spirit that this university has given me these past four years. I also have the opportunity, starting today, to help train and grow the next generation of tour guides and share my experience with prospective students through them as well. It's a truly humbling and gratifying experience, and I'm thankful for all the time I have spent sharing my love for SU with others. Your next challenge is to think about the place you are right now. Really try to appreciate it and write a list of three things you love about this place.

Studying is an unfortunately unavoidable aspect of every college experience. When I first came to SU I didn't have very good study habits-I had to learn the hard way how necessary studying is, and how important it is to set aside time to do work and review. One of my favorite places to study is in Panasci Lounge in Schine. It's a big open room that lets in a lot of light, has a great view of the Hall of Languages, and also is a great place to people watch during study breaks. I often find a study buddy already working here too, and working with someone else allows you to motivate and encourage each other! It's important to find the places you work best for those #grind days. Your next challenge is to reach out to a friend you haven't spoken to in a while. Ask them how they've been and encourage them to keep working towards their dreams! – C.F.K. * * "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." – Nelson Mandela * * #SyracuseU #Syracuse #SyracuseUniversity #SU #Cuse #Orange #Studenttakeover #Studentlife #Panasci #Study #Studying

I've found myself reflecting on my time at SU quite a bit as graduation approaches. I am not the same person today that I was in this picture, which was taken the day I moved into Shaw Hall freshman year. I have learned so much about the worlds with which I live, both the internal and the external. I have developed interests and passions beyond anything I had considered three and a half years ago, and feel like I am prepared to pursue them. I have grown so much in such a short amount of time and being a student here at Syracuse is what helped me along that path. I've made some good decisions and some bad ones but, looking back, I am thankful for them all. And I'm thankful for SU for being both the air that lifts me up (Ha aerospace puns) and the earth that supports me below. How often do you practice gratitude? Your challenge is to write a list of at least five things you're grateful for today, and if you're feeling ambitious go for ten! I'd love to hear what some of them are! – C.F.K. * * "I have no special talent.

Syracuse University is a top-tier research institution, and I have had the pleasure of assisting with a number of projects. Notably, I got to work in the High Energy Physics lab last summer. My job was helping to construct mechanical supports for sensors designed to detect beauty quarks (really really tiny and unique particles) in a new round of Large Hadron Collider (Big loop that smashes tiny things together)experiments. More recently, I've had the opportunity to get involved, minimal as it may be, with aircraft propulsion research being conducted by Professor Dang and PhD candidate Andrew Welles. They are exploring the enormous potential of distributed electric propulsion. The idea is that instead of having an engine mounted away from the wing, your propulsion system is PART of the wing. This helps to generate more lift (what makes a plane go up) and thrust (what makes a plane go forward), and makes for a significantly more efficient plane. It could also be implemented in the design electric vertical liftoff and landing (eVTOL) systems for futuristic vehicles like #airtaxis. At Syracuse, it's research like this that's pushing the boundaries of conventional science. Your challenge this evening is to think of the worst joke you can, and send it to your friends! Laughter is a great way to relieve stress and feel good, and it's contagious!

This semester I am working on my senior design project with my teammates and good friends Jake and Dalya. We’re designing and building a small plane to carry a 2L bottle rocket payload. The challenge in senior design is to take everything you have learned from your classes and coursework from the past 3.5 years and apply it to a single design project. It’s both difficult and rewarding. Today, we were learning manufacturing methods and how to work with materials. We have a lot of unique ideas that will likely become manufacturing nightmares, but we’re still optimistic! The challenge this morning is to take a moment and ponder the following question: If everything you have learned and experienced were to be shown in some final project, some culminating work that shows you and your life, what would that project be and what would it show others? – C.F.K. * * “The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.”- Socrates * * #Syracuse #SyracuseUniversity #SyracuseU #SU #Cuse #Orange #Studenttakeover #Studentlife #Seniordesign #Senior #EngineeringSU

Two years ago, I was just finishing up a trip through Scandinavia that I took during spring break while studying abroad—trust me when I say I learned a lot of hard lessons about the value of planning. I spent a semester studying at @UniversityCollegeDublin and it was a truly life-changing experience.  I met so many kind and welcoming people and learned just how much I do not know about the world. Traveling increases your awareness of and appreciation for the vast variety of cultures and peoples who share this little blue marble we call home. Syracuse University has a great study abroad program, but regardless of where you go I encourage all those who still can study abroad to do just that. For those who can’t I highly encourage traveling. Not to the popular tourist destinations, but to the small towns and cities that surround the big destinations. Challenge yourself to explore and to learn. My challenge is an easy one: share two places you would love to visit. One place must be somewhere on earth, and the other can be anywhere in any universe (Books, Movies, Video games, etc.). I’ll start! I want to visit Iceland and The Citadel (from Mass Effect).

Today, my partner Serena Omo-Lamai and I had the pleasure of competing in 2018 Raymond von Dran iPrize competition. We had the honor of winning prize money to support our endeavor and have been chosen to represent SU at the New York State Business Plane Competition next month! We are the inventors of FibreFree, which is a laundry ball that helps to mitigate that catastrophic effects of microfiber pollution by collecting them before they leave the washing machine. For those who are unfamiliar, microfibers are the tiny plastic fibers that break off of synthetic textiles (polyester, nylon, etc.). They are very small and difficult to notice but have already contaminated over 90% of tested US tap water sources. Serena and I developed FibreFree last summer during the Invent@SU program, and now we’re working to put a stop to that such that we may #livefibrefree. Furthermore, resources on campus like @launchpadsyr are critical in helping us to develop our product and make it a reality. With a huge entrepreneurial and innovative spirit here at SU, I am happy to know that my dreams are being supported. Your challenge this evening is to tune into your TV’s or streams and watch the SU vs. Duke game at 9:30 pm and get ready to #BeatDuke! – C.F.K. * * “Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”- Ralph Waldo Emerson * * #Syracuse #SyracuseUniversity #SyracuseU #SU #Cuse #Orange #Studenttakeover #Studentlife #Entrepreneurship #Inventor #Microfiberpollution #Blackstone #launchpad #WeAreEntrepreneurs

Everyone is supportive and caring and we push each other to do our best both in the group and outside. We're in Belfer Studio today recording a couple of songs and starting our week off strong. If you want to hear us live, Otto Tunes is having their spring invitational on Saturday, April 7th! It will be in Shemin Auditorium at 7 pm, and it’s free for all to attend!

Hey everyone! My name is Jacob Gedetsis, and I am a senior studying English and Textual Studies / Newspaper and Online Journalism at SU. I am so excited to take over the account on of the most important weeks of the year: Remembrance Week. I am so humbled to have been chosen as one of 35 Remembrance Scholars, and I can’t wait to share all the beautiful work the scholars have done this year to Look Back and Act Forward. On December 21st, 1988, Pan Am Flight 103 was bombed over Lockerbie, Scotland; 270 people died that day, including 35 students studying with Syracuse University who were returning from their semesters abroad. Every year, Syracuse University holds Remembrance Week in honor of these individuals. Yesterday, we began Remembrance Week 2017 with a candlelight vigil in their memory. I have the honor of representing Nicholas Andreas Vrenios. Nicholas took to London his three prized possessions – a camera, a guitar, and a skateboard. A junior photography major, Nicholas would wake up before sunrise to snap the perfect shot, before rushing off to his next journey. He had a relentless adventurous spirit. I think we would have been close friends. So follow along this week to learn more about Remembrance, and my time at SU! – #syracuseu J.G.
