Cover Story

Common Ground

When His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama spoke at Syracuse University’s Hendricks Chapel in 1979, he bore a message of peace, compassion, and tolerance based on our common humanity. More than three decades later—with visions of global harmony as elusive as ever—the Dalai Lama, now 77, brought that same message back to Syracuse.


What is it? It=The Future

The Campaign for Syracuse University surpasses $1 billion fund-raising goal, as alumni and friends band together to raise nearly double the funds of prior campaigns.

Friendship Forged in Orange

In the late '40s, Ed Bleier, Mort Janklow, Bob Menschel, and Bill Safire came together on the Hill and went on to highly successful careers while cherishing the bond they created with one another at Syracuse.
