Join our community of experts

Many alumni return to campus as guest lecturers, serve on advisory boards, provide career advice at SUccess in the City events, host an immersion program in the DC area, or offer internship or employment opportunities.

Recruit new students

Syracuse alumni are some of the University’s strongest advocates. If you loved your Orange experience, share it with friends, neighbors, colleagues, and the kid who lives down the block. These people may one day become prospective students and parents. Encourage anyone who’s considering college to attend a local Syracuse event.
