This exciting weekend is for everyone who Bleeds Orange! With activities including campus tours, special performances, lectures, tailgates, and a football game, there's something for everyone.


Your weekend at Syracuse will be packed with events and Orange Spirit! Each year we hold milestone class reunions, and events for Remembrance Scholars, U100, WAER, Hendricks Chapel Choir, Ottos, veterans and many more. Additionally, we run campus tours throughout the weekend and host various lectures, awards ceremonies, and receptions. Don't miss out on Friday night's Syracuse University Alumni Awards Celebration or the Orange Central Tailgate before Saturday's football game.


Ready to come home? Be sure to register for Orange Central ahead of time—the earlier, the better for some great discounts! And when you arrive on campus, stop by Registration Headquarters to check-in and get your limited-edition Orange Central gear. We'd love to see you there!
