Orange Previews

Orange Previews are a great way to explore Syracuse.

Check-in begins at 8:00 a.m., and you should plan to spend the morning on campus. You'll meet staff and faculty in your college of interest, take a tour of campus led by a student ambassador from our University 100 and have the opportunity to meet campus representatives from Syracuse Abroad, the Renée Crown University Honors Program and the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarship Programs. Orange Previews are intended for prospective first-year and transfer students.
