Happy New Year! We hope you are getting excited to come to Syracuse University!  Don't forget to complete the tasks on the 
New Student Checklist and review the Winter Welcome 2017 schedule.  We encourage you to attend all Winter Welcome events! 
Emergency Contact Info on MySlice
Don't leave this information blank! 

Did you know that many SU students choose to leave their emergency contact data screen blank? We believe that it is because you do not want us sharing information with your parents/family members without your permission; which, of course, is illegal, and not the purpose of this info screen at all.
The emergency contact data on  MySlice is used by University personnel for notification of someone in case of emergency if you are unable to do so yourself. In fact, the University does not mandate that this contact be a parent or guardian; it can be another relative or even a friend. The most important part is that this section is NOT left blank.
Log in to your  MySlice account and make sure that your emergency contact information is completed!
Think About It
Complete the online course by February 16th!

Think About It is a interactive, online experience designed to help students make smart decisions in college around sex, alcohol, and drugs. Created for students, by students, the course promotes a healthier and safer campus environment for everyone.

Think About It takes about two to two-and-a-half hours to complete. You can work at your own pace from any computer (requires Flash player). You can leave and return to the course at any time, and when you return, it will open to the page where you left off.  This online course is  mandatory for all new students.   Please note that failure to complete this course will affect your ability to register for fall 2018 classes.

You will receive an email directly from  Think About It with the subject line "Syracuse University Think About It Log-in" on January 16th.  Click on the link enclosed in the email from  Think About It to start the online course. 

*Please note, this Think About It information does not pertain to returning Discovery students.

Learn your SU Traditions!
National Orange Day

National Orange Day began on March 24, 1994, in commemoration of SU Founders Day. Alumni from around the world are asked to show their pride by sporting the color orange on the University's anniversary. SU students and others participate in service oriented activities. Organized by the Traditions Commission and the Office of Alumni Engagement, this day has hopes of being a legacy for years to come.
