​Own the Dome

Spend the night in the Dome on April 14, 2019!

This is an exciting 24 hours of getting to know what it’s like to #BeOrange! It kicks off with an optional reception and panel discussion at Dineen Hall at 4 p.m. You’re invited to join us as Syracuse University students, faculty and alumni discuss the African American and Hispanic student experience.

Plan to arrive at the Dome between 5-6:45 p.m. After the welcome, say goodbye to your family and get ready to have some fun! You'll meet up with them in the morning to attend the Spring Reception.

Own the Dome has reached capacity. Registration is no longer available.
