I hear there's a lot of Greek life, but again, as a theater student, your interaction with main campus life is somewhat limited. But there is plenty of involvement to be had within the drama department, so I never felt I missed out on the "traditional" college experience.

CURRICULUM FOCUS
Syracuse University Business Program
UDC Contributor

Syracuse University is in the business of giving sports fans a reason to cheer, teaching cold-weather newbies how to fare New York winters, and molding students into leaders. A four-hour drive north of the Big Apple, this top-ranked private university in the smaller City of Syracuse will make you bleed orange with pride, because whether or not the team is No. 1 next year, your future in business should look fiery bright as a Syracuse Orangeman. Business students find their Syracuse home in the Martin J. Whitman School of Management, one of the first AACSB-accredited business schools in the nation (founded in 1919 and accredited in 1920). Boasting 16 percent of 2013’s graduating class, the school’s business programs lead as the most popular majors at Syracuse. And the stats get better: 88 percent of the Whitman School’s 2014 graduates were employed within 3 months of graduating, with an average starting salary of $53,825.

CURRICULUM FOCUS
Syracuse University Communication and Media Program
UDC Contributor

When you become a member of the Syracuse Orange community, you’ll find yourself in a smaller city filled with New York-style opportunities to commune, communicate, and accumulate line items for your perfectly fine-tuned resume. Communication is not only huge at Syracuse University; it’s renowned. Why? Students at all levels are encouraged to engage on all levels and take their skills outside of the classroom, whether you’re at the pub on M Street, studying abroad in Dubai, or networking through Lambda Pi Eta, the nation’s official honor society for communication students. Communication-related majors take second place for the most popular fields of study at Syracuse U, representing 13 percent of 2013’s graduating class. All of the various communication programs at Syracuse are split into three places: the Department of Communication and Rhetorical Studies in the College of Visual and Performing Arts, the famous S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, and the College of Arts and Sciences. With a cross-campus spread like that, Syracuse covers communication all the way from A to Z.

Featured Alumni Review
Matthew
M.A. in Communication and Rhetorical Studies, Class of 2009

U I LOVE that school, city, and most of all that department...There are very few programs in the country that can match Syracuse’s Communication and Rhetorical Studies (CRS) department in terms of faculty qualifications and personal attention...The department has aggressively hired some of the most influential contemporary scholars in the field of communication. Consequently, they are among undisputed top programs in the country for communication studies, particularly rhetorical studies. Syracuse University’s greatest strength is its commitment to creating an active and engaged college culture. The small and relatively condensed campus cultivates a strong sense of community among Syracuse students and faculty, providing support systems across the campus and the city itself...Businesses and communities across the city cooperate and organize around the idea of encouraging people to eat, drink, buy, and think local...Syracuse is a deceptively diverse, creative, and energetic city with lots to do and see. Also, you don’t need to go to Buffalo for wings. Syracuse is home to quite a few local joints that specialize in great wings at a more than reasonable price.

Sam
B.S. in Marketing Management, Class of 2014

U Where but Syracuse U are you going to get it all in one place? With a focus on development, experiential learning, and building a toolbox of marketable SKILLS that employers shop for, Whitman SOM is the best place to completely develop yourself personally and professionally and prepare for whatever field you decide to venture into. Committed alumni and employer partnerships help to drive post-graduation employment too (something the parents will appreciate). Syracuse University is also known for its Division I collegiate athletics programs, 2003 Men's Basketball National Champions, Carmelo Anthony (NBA superstar), treacherous winters, strong school spirit, [and] the best BBQ north of Washington, D.C. (Dino BBQ).
