Hopefully Syracuse University Has A Lot To Celebrate On It's Birthday

Saturday, Syracuse University turns 142 years old.

Say it with me, "But she doesn't look a day over 99."

On March 24, 1870, the greatest university the world has ever known came into creation and the world has never been the same. Make sure you pour some out for Dr. Erastus Otis Haven, George F. Comstock and the rest of the Syracuse forefathers that allow you to sit around all day on a Saturday drinking Natty Ice watching a Syracuse game.

To celebrate, there's a whole bunch of stuff going on. Not least of which is the Syracuse Orange basketball team which will attempt to advance to the Final Four. Could make for a helluva birthday celebration.

Other things going on...

Traditions Commission will hand out celebratory cupcakes and cookies in the Hildegarde and J. Myer Schine Student Center Atrium from noon-2 p.m.

The Carrier Dome and the National Grid building in downtown Syracuse will be lit in orange on Saturday night.

The Central New York Alumni Club will partner with the Downtown Committee and SU students, faculty and staff to help clean up downtown Syracuse and the University Hill on Saturday, March 24, from 8:30-11 a.m. They will then meet at Varsity Pizza at 12:30 p.m. for lunch. To sign up, e-mail events@downtownsyracuse.com with the subject line "National Orange Day 3/24 volunteer" by March 21. In the e-mail, indicate the number in your party and if you plan to enjoy lunch at Varsity Pizza. For more information, contact Kim Brown at kbrow04@syr.edu.

Meanwhile, SU alumni clubs all over the country and planning big events to celebrate, check the list to see what's going on.
