Faculty and Staff Appreciation Day to Be Held Sept. 17 at the JMA Wireless Dome
Syracuse University will celebrate its faculty and staff with $10 football tickets for the Saturday, Sept. 17, game at the JMA Dome when the Orange take on Purdue at noon. Faculty and staff and their guests are invited to the Kenneth A. Shaw Quadrangle prior to the game to enjoy a performance from the Pride of the Orange Marching Band along with food and beverage concessions.
The first 500 full-time, part-time or temporary faculty and staff with a faculty or staff Syracuse University I.D. to visit the University’s pregame Faculty and Staff Appreciation tent on the Shaw Quad will receive a game day gift and a $5 concession coupon.
A few days prior to the game, a drawing will be held to invite faculty and staff members to enjoy an enhanced game day experience. Those who have purchased tickets prior to Sept. 12 will be eligible for the drawing. Winners will be notified prior to game day.
Tickets cost $10 apiece for University faculty and staff, their children and their guests (up to a limit of 10). Faculty and staff may purchase tickets online, and tickets can be purchased until the day of the event.
Team Competition on the Quad
Join with other schools, colleges and administrative units for some friendly competition during ’Cuse on the Quad! Teams of three to five members are being recruited to join a short, bracket-style game against colleagues before kickoff at noon. To register a team, email Abby Lozon at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
- One team representative
- The school/college/administrative unit you’re representing
- Names of all team members
Teams will try to guess the most popular answers to a series of ’Cuse-themed questions, with winners receiving bragging rights and a prize.
Food Drive to Benefit the Salvation Army
On game day, the University’s Office of Community Engagement will collect non-perishable food items for the Salvation Army of Syracuse’s emergency pantry as part of its Food Insecurity Awareness Week. Drop-off barrels will be placed at 11 locations approaching the JMA Dome that morning, including at the faculty and staff appreciation tent on the Quad. Volunteers for the Salvation Army will also collect monetary donations at various red kettles stationed around the JMA Dome.
Currently, the pantry’s most-needed items include:
- Pasta sauce (no glass jars, please)
- Canned beans
- Canned fruit
- Juice (shelf-stable cartons or plastic)
Faculty and staff are encouraged to contribute to this cause. The Salvation Army’s food pantry has served more than 1,100 individuals in Syracuse over the last month, providing families and individuals with enough food for three meals per day for five days.
University parking permits will be honored for free game day parking at the Skytop parking lot. For faculty and staff who do not already have University parking permits, a single, complimentary, one-time-use Skytop parking pass will be available for game day. These permits will be available for pickup on Thursday, Sept. 15, and Friday, Sept. 16, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Office of Human Resources, Skytop Office Building, with proof of a Faculty and Staff Appreciation Day game ticket and a Syracuse University I.D.
