Weather forecasts force relocation of concert, pep rally; other Homecoming + Reunion events to continue as plannedOctober 11, 2007SU News ServicesSUnews@syr.edu
Forecasts of inclement weather for Friday night have forced the relocation of some of Syracuse University’s Homecoming + Reunion events.
The free concert by Gym Class Heroes, previously scheduled for 9 p.m. on the Quad, has been relocated to the Hildegarde and J. Myer Schine Student Center. The move indoors requires that this be a ticketed event; a limited number of free tickets were made available to students on Thursday morning, and all tickets were gone by Thursday afternoon. Non-ticket-holders will not be able to enter the concert venue.
The outdoor pep rally, previously scheduled for the Quad, has been relocated to Hendricks Chapel. It will begin at 6:15 p.m., and is free and open to the public, with no tickets required.
The free, public Homecoming parade and banner competition are still scheduled to begin at the Schine Student Center at 5:30 p.m., though changing weather on Friday may affect this event as well.
Many other Homecoming+Reunion events will take place throughout the weekend regardless of weather; check http://sunews.syr.edu throughout the day on Friday for all updates on the status of events.
