Hello New York! (And the surrounding Tri-State area). Just a quick announcement that on Thursdays here on Troy Nunes is an Absolute Magician, we're going to be doing an alumni-focused column for those in the area.
It makes sense, right? Afterall, the Orange are going to an awful lot of trouble to make sure everyone knows that they're "New York's College Team" and unscientifically I'm going to go ahead and say that there are more Syracuse Alumni in New York City than anywhere else on Earth (feel free to challenge me on that completely made up assessment).
So what are we going to cover? What's going on in and around New York City with the various alumni clubs, game watching activities, trips, events, networking , Lubin House activities, Big Apple Orange events, etc.
I want to know what orange things you're up to and that goes for you recent grads right on up to anyone who's been out for 5, 10, 15, 20, 30+ years. How are you keeping in touch with the university after you graduate, and beyond? What would you like to do more of? I want to hear what you thought about an event that you attended. Seriously - nothing is too small to ruminate on. If you're a part of any of the Syracuse organizations in town, let me know your event schedule and how alumni in the area can take part. I'll feature some each week.
Just like this one:
Syracuse University's home away from home on the upper east side of Manhattan is the Lubin House, and they were kind enough to share with me a few of their upcoming events. One of which you may be particularly interested in is a panel discussion happening on February 16th called "The Business of Sports -- Who's Up and Who's Down in 2012" featuring Syracuse Alumni from ESPN, Turner Broadcasting Company, and IMG Sports and Entertainment. If you're interested in attending find out more and register here.
That all being said - get me your info at email@example.com.
And have you bought your tickets for when Syracuse comes to the garden to take on St. John's on February 4th?
