As I asked that student in 1986, I ask you now, Chancellor Syverud: Why are you here? I am really trying to understand. And I know, because I read in their deep, critical descriptions of what it is like to be heard on this campus, that the students who are THE General Body want to know this as well.
If anything, this summer taught me a thing or two about courage. The courage to follow one's own heart and intuition is what led me to go abroad in the first place. When I finally learned to move past initial discomforts, I found I really loved Uganda.
People already knew Syracuse has plenty of school spirit, parties and fun events before the ranking. That's not what would discourage prospective students from applying. As a young woman, I would place more importance on finding a school that takes sexual assault seriously.
I am reminded of the teenager who welcomed me into his home, loved American music and was the farthest thing from MS-13 anyone could be. At the end of the day these are human beings. They are children.
For some, it's just a breakdown of law and order. For others, it's a moral challenge beyond ideology. And, quite reasonably, opponents of immigration are waiting to see how Progressive states react to requests to share the burden. Especially New York.
In a world where we are so quick to toss aside the "old" and the antiquated without even a brief recognition of preservation and gentrification, Kathleen Sorbello-Discenna is a living example that we can preserve our rich history.

I feel lucky to count myself among the early believers in Huskies basketball. As I wear my UConn shirt proudly today, I remember when the campus community rallied around our entire family.
By making the SAT more representative of what students learn in their schools, the College Board may democratize the exam, and make its accessibility -- and therefore college's accessibility -- open to everyone.
It seems like ever since the inception of the Maui Invitational, one can expect to see teams playing in Hawaii during November and December still playing in late March en route to the National Championship.
March is generally the time of year to be peaking, not falling, and there seems to be a palpable sense of panic around the 'Cuse. Could they conceivably drop to a four-seed? What happened to Trevor Cooney's jumper? Can Boeheim right the ship? While the Orange is undeniably struggling, a lot can still happen between now and the tournament. Let's take a look at three reasons why we shouldn't panic.
As the demographics in the United States evolve, we as educators must work to increase the number of minority students in these disciplines, disciplines where they remain under represented.
When many people think of unpaid internships, they assume the only thing missing from the opportunity is pay and benefits. This couldn't be further from the truth. Unpaid internships also lack another crucial element: Protection from harassment.
Mid-way through my third year of college at Syracuse University, my close friend and roommate, David Noonan, announced that he was going to drop out f...
I hope that with the 25th anniversary of the Lockerbie bombing, you spend a few moments thinking of the 270 victims who died tragically but spend even more time thinking of how you can have a positive effect on those around you today. Life is short, and each day is a blessing.
Here in the real world, Washington is playing a Hunger Game of its own and the results are devastating. Yes, winter is coming, the holidays are on their way, and on November 1, the United States government cut food stamp benefits by 13.6 percent.
