Students Celebrate Orange Pride During Orange Central 2017
Students are invited to join in SU’s homecoming and reunion celebration through Oct. 7. Throughout the week, the Office of Student Activities works with the Traditions Commission to host new and popular returning events for current students to celebrate their Orange pride.
“Homecoming is my favorite time of the year because it’s so much fun for everyone, and we all are part of the same Orange family,” says Kristen Unangst, a member of the Traditions Commission and senior in the Whitman School of Management. “It makes me proud to be Orange when I see alumni come back and share in the spirit.”
Orange Central is the annual homecoming and reunion that brings together students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends of the University together for one weekend. The Office of Student Activities and the Traditions Commission work closely to host engaging, fun events for current students that help students form lasting connections to the University.
