Blizzard Predicted for JMA Wireless Dome on Jan. 30
Monday’s men’s basketball game against Virginia will have a very blizzard-like feel, with the entire student section dressed in white.
Otto’s Army, the Syracuse University’s student section, is partnering with the Forever Orange Student Alumni Council on this special effort to spotlight the importance of giving back.
“Otto’s Army could not be more excited for the Blizzard! Seeing the student section come together and unite under this theme in support of our team is the highlight of game day. Being in the Syracuse University student section means more than just being a fan, it means being a part of something bigger—being a part of Otto’s Army. Giving goes a long way in helping the student section experience. Otto’s Army can only pull off so many of our wonderful initiatives without the support of these gifts, and so we appreciate everyone who assists us in our quest to remain the biggest, the loudest and the best student section in the nation,” says Anna Terzaghi ’25, president of Otto’s Army.
Students will be wearing Blizzard T-shirts with QR codes on the back; when someone scans to make a gift, that gift will go directly to Otto’s Army. Gifts support student travel to games, so that the travel does not become cost prohibitive.
For seniors, the gifts are especially meaningful. When a senior makes a gift of at least $20.23 in honor of their class year, it’s considered a Class Act gift—and the student will receive special cords at Commencement to show that they gave back.
“I’m proud to give back to the Syracuse University community because it makes special events and unique opportunities possible that current and future students can enjoy and take advantage of during their college experience,” says Anna Jenkins ’23, co-president of the Forever Orange Student Alumni Council.
The Blizzard is set for Monday, Jan. 30, at 7 p.m. in the JMA Wireless Dome. The game will be nationally televised and is the only ACC game that day, meaning all eyes will be on this amazing fundraising effort!
