Get Involved

Your SU family misses you!

Whether you graduated last year or 50 years ago, you’re forever Orange! Here are some of the ways you can stay involved with other alumni and your SU family:

  • Come back to campus.
    There’s always something happening on campus, including a whole range of sporting events, lectures, and of course, Orange Central—the combination homecoming and reunion celebration held every fall. Visit to keep up with the latest happenings!
  • Attend local events.
    The SU Alumni Club of Chicago is one of the University’s most active alumni clubs, sponsoring faculty speakers, career networking events, game-watching activities, theatrical and artistic events, and many other activities. Find out about the latest events.
  • Be a mentor.
    Are you willing to give career advice to students and fellow alumni? Join ’CuseConnect, a LinkedIn group managed by Syracuse University Career Services. Learn more.
  • Build your personal contacts.
    New to the Chicago area? Looking to establish some contacts? Need some career advice? Join the ’CuseConnect to link up with alumni who can help. Want to know about other career-boosting resources? Check out SU’s Center for Career Services.
  • Join our community of experts.
    SU alumni and friends can provide today’s students with invaluable support in the form of expertise and real-world experiences. Many alumni return to campus as guest lecturers, serve on advisory boards, provide career advice at SUccess in the City events, host an immersion program in the Chicago area, or offer internship or employment opportunities.
  • Recruit new students.
    SU alumni are some of the University’s strongest advocates. If you loved your Orange experience, share it with friends, neighbors, colleagues, and the kid who lives down the street. These people may one day become prospective students and parents. Encourage anyone who’s considering college to attend a local SU event.

As you can see, there are myriad ways to stay connected and involved. Interested? Contact us!
