Mark Your Calendar: Fall 2017 Is Full of Orange Events
Alumni, family and friends are invited to spend time on campus this fall during three exciting, event-filled weekends that celebrate what it means to be Orange and highlight all that we are proud of at Syracuse University.
Registration is now open for Coming Back Together XII (CBTXII), which brings African American and Latino alumni back to campus. Hosted every three years by the Office of Program Development, the reunion weekend offers students an opportunity to meet prominent alumni of color. With a reunion theme of “Celebrate, Inspire, Empower”, African American and Latino alumni enjoy CBT weekend by reconnecting with one another, sharing their secrets to success, supporting SU scholarship funds, and promoting their vision of how to keep the University moving forward.
CBT XII will be held Sept. 14-17. For more information, visit http://programdevelopment.syr.edu/events/coming-back-together-xii/.
