Syracuse University is a private research university of extraordinary academics, distinctive offerings, and an undeniable spirit.

Few schools are associated with a color as strongly as Syracuse University. A brilliant shade of orange is tied into campus life, manifesting itself in student media outlets such as The Daily Orange, the student-run newspaper, and CitrusTV, the television studio. The school’s sports teams are known simply as Orange and compete in the NCAA Division I Atlantic Coast Conference, cheered on by school mascot Otto the Orange. The football team plays in Carrier Dome, famed as the only domed stadium in the Northeast.

The school’s campus sits on University Hill, above the sprawling city of Syracuse in central New York state. With about 100 inches of snowfall each year, the bitterly cold winters at Syracuse University give students plenty of opportunities for skiing, snowboarding and sledding on nearby mountains. On campus, there are more than 300 student organizations. About 30 percent of Syracuse students are involved in Greek life. All freshmen and sophomore students must live in on-campus housing, though there are some exceptions.

REVIEWS
1. My four years at Syracuse were a wonderful experience. I truly enjoyed my classes and felt the instructors were excellent and course material was interesting and challenging. There are countless groups, activities and events truly something for everyone even if you're not into Greek life (I wasn't). Post-grad I have found our alumni network to be strong and supportive. Overall SU is top notch. 2.Your education is not just in the classroom.... Yes, we have excellent research teams. Yes, the athletics are great too, but the involvement of the students on campus is what makes Syracuse great! Everyone you meet at Syracuse is in at least one organization(club, greek life, sport, etc.), most of the students are in 2 or more (campus survey, 2018). The professors not only understand, but they encourage you to get involved. At Syracuse you will have the time to make life long friends and memories, which I guarantee will take you much farther and leave you more satisfied than a perfect GPA and a caffeine addiction that you might get from another school.
