A Message from Chancellor Syverud

Chancellor Syverud

Greetings from Syracuse University. We are busy planning for your arrival, and look forward to welcoming you to campus this fall.

I know this is a very busy time for you as well. This website is designed to answer any last-minute questions you may have and help you prepare for this exciting transition to college life. I hope it also gives you a sense of what is in store for you here at Syracuse and the wonderful opportunities and resources available to you.

At Syracuse you will have opportunities to learn in so many new ways, from cutting-edge research to immersion experiences at one of our SU Abroad sites on three continents. You will learn from and be mentored by extraordinary teachers who will take the time to get to know you and your aspirations. You will be supported by wonderful and caring staff who will help you adjust smoothly to your new home away from home. You will make lots of new acquaintances and begin to form lifelong bonds of friendship. One of the best ways to begin forging those friendships is to get involved. With more than 300 student organizations, Syracuse offers plenty of opportunities for you to do that. I encourage you to explore them.

Please take the time to explore this website and familiarize yourself with some of the resources and services available to help with your transition. Your college experience will be here before you know it. We will have plenty of activities to make sure you get off to a wonderful start. See you soon!
