A Taste of Orange

National Orange Day

Mark it on your calendar.

March 24 is a special day for Syracuse University students, alumni, faculty, and staff. It marks the anniversary of SU’s founding in 1870, and is celebrated by the “wearin’ of the Orange,” campus events (including birthday cake, of course), and community service projects, both on campus and in cities across the country. Check out photos from National Orange Day 2014, Syracuse University’s 144th birthday!
