As members of the 2020 Orientation Leader team, we are thrilled to welcome you to the Syracuse University community! We represent countries from around the world, study a variety of majors and are passionate about our commitment to the greater Syracuse community.

Your Syracuse University journey officially starts in August with Syracuse Welcome, where you will meet new friends and the Orientation Leader team. We will introduce you to all that Syracuse has to offer—from participating in academic research and getting involved in extracurricular opportunities to attending sports events and volunteering in the community.

We understand this transition may look a little different than you imagined, but we will overcome the challenges together as one Orange family.

We will get to know you at Syracuse Welcome events and answer any questions you have. Most importantly, we are thrilled to help make Syracuse feel like your home for the next few years.

We look forward to the opportunity to meet, connect and have fun with you during Syracuse Welcome 2020!
