About Us

Chicago bleeds Orange!

When you consider the number of Syracuse University students who live in the Chicago area, the number of graduates who have found success here, and the number of Chicago alumni who support SU both financially and with their time and energy, it’s clear that the Windy City bleeds Orange. What is it that’s ingrained SU into the very fabric of Chicago?

  • A vast network of SU alumni. More than 3,000 Chicago-area alumni open doors for SU grads in the worlds of management, finance, the arts and sciences, and many others. Read about some of them.
  • A home base of nearly 250 SU students who hail from the Chicago area. Meet just one.
  • A wide range of events. Alumni networking events, industry panel discussions, new student send-offs—all these and more give alumni and students the opportunity to engage with SU in Chicago, creating a lively exchange of ideas. Learn more.
  • A strong presence of Chicago-area alumni, parents, and friends who volunteer in SU leadership positions. Four serve on the Board of Trustees, 16 are members of school and college advisory boards, and 14 serve on the Chicago Regional Council.
