Behold, Your Syracuse University Bucket List

Tuesday 8/22/2017

To prove just that, our mascot, Otto the Orange, posted a Syracuse University bucket list to Instagram. Here are a few of the things he did—and the things you should do while you're here to get the full SU experience.

#1 Catch a game in the Dome. Experience the excitement of an SU football, basketball, or lacrosse game in our 49,262-seat stadium. (And maybe get a chance at #2, a photo with Otto.)

#5 Camp out at Boeheimburg. This January, over 100 of our students braved 13 days of near-freezing temperatures to reserve their spots in line for the men's basketball game versus Duke. A 13-day camp out might not be in the cards for a law student, but witnessing our students' dedication is an experience in itself.

#8 Selfie with Chancellor Syverud. Chancellor and president, Kent Syverud, became the 12th leader of the University in January 2014. He served as a witness in the landmark affirmative-action case, Grutter v. Bollinger, and has published law review articles related to civil litigation, insurance law, and negotiation. (Great conversation starters while you're acquiring that selfie.)

#9 Relax in the Orange Grove. The Orange Grove, widely considered the University's landmark, is located adjacent to the Quad. It's lined by a walkway of granite pavers that are engraved with donors' names. Not only is it a great place for our students to study or socialize in the sun, but it's also a place to leave your legacy after graduation.

#11 Coffee at People's Place. Tucked underneath Hendricks Chapel is our campus's hidden gem, People's Place. Stop for a cup of fair trade organic coffee, bagels, or other baked goods from this student-run and non-profit operation.

If you think you're up for the challenge, plan a trip to familiarize yourself with our campus
