Syracuse University Meetup offers simple way to organize events, bring people together
Syracuse University has a new presence in the Meetup environment (http://www.meetup.com/Syracuse-University/) that provides an easy and free means for anyone in the SU community (students, alumni, faculty/staff, departments, clubs, overseas centers) to organize gatherings and bring people together on campus or anywhere in the world.
Syracuse University Meetup is ideal for planning club meetings, field trips, game-watching events, study sessions, movie and game nights, parties and all sorts of other get-togethers. Meetup makes it easy for anyone to self-organize a local group or find one that is already formed and meet up face-to-face (with easy search by zip code/city or topic).
It’s easy to get started:
- Go to http://www.meetup.com/Syracuse-University.
- Sign up for a Meetup in your community or start your own Meetup, then get together with old and new friends at the actual event.
- Take part in the next SU Worldwide Meetup Day (for the SU at Villanova men’s basketball game on Feb. 21); join an existing SU/Villanova Meetup or decide on a time and location and create your own.
While at your Meetup, be sure to tag your event tweets, photos and videos with #SyracuseUMeetups.
