What it Means to be Orange
Orange was voted in as Syracuse University’s official color in 1890. Today, orange isn’t just a color—it’s a way of life. Here’s what our students say:
- Angie Pati ’18 connects science, communication, empathy, and leadership
- Runner Justyn Knight ’18 discusses the value of setting unrealistic goals
- Junior Megan Forbes ’20 shares how she is honing her craft as a designer
- Yaqi Kang ’18 works at the intersection of culture, politics, and community
- Alumna Kristen Unangst ’18 embodies the Orange spirit in so many ways
- Veteran Rob Rivera G’18, G’19 inspires new generations of first responders
From customizing their education, to gaining real world experience from industry leaders, Syracuse students are bold. They stand out from the crowd. We believe a single person can make an impact, and the Orange Family can change the world. What does #BeOrange mean to you?
