Save These Dates: Coming Back Together, Family Weekend and Orange Central 2021
Following the release of Syracuse University’s 2021 football schedule, dates are now set for three signature weekends on the Syracuse University campus—Coming Back Together, Family Weekend and Orange Central.
Coming Back Together, which celebrates African American and Latinx alumni, is slated for Sept. 9-12, 2021. Hosted every three years by the Office of Multicultural Advancement (formerly the Office of Program Development), and postponed in 2020, the reunion weekend offers students an opportunity to network with successful alumni of color by participating in a variety of events and cultural activities. Alumni support the University by giving to the Our Time Has Come (OTHC) Scholarship Fund.
Family Weekend, coordinated by Parent and Family Services, will be held Oct. 8-10, and registration information will be shared this summer. Loved ones are encouraged to participate in a host of programs that showcase daily life for Syracuse University students.
The Office of Alumni Engagement’s Orange Central celebration is set for Oct. 28-31. The weekend features reunion gatherings, fascinating academic lectures and the much-anticipated Alumni Awards Show. Visit the Orange Central website for the most current information, including registration details as they are available, and enjoy a look back at 2020’s virtual celebration.
For interested fans, ticket information for the 2021 football season will be shared in the coming weeks. Syracuse University Football will face Rutgers during Coming Back Together, Wake Forest during Family Weekend and Boston College during Orange Central.
