Your Participation Can Boost the ’Cuse
Join us in making history on March 23, 2023, as we Boost the ‘Cuse during Syracuse University’s most significant giving day yet. Forever Orange Week will showcase the best of our beloved institution, and we invite our global Orange community to participate.
Boost the ’Cuse takes all of ’CUSE. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to be part of this momentous occasion and contribute to our continued success. Let’s show the world what it means to be Forever Orange!
1. Scott Hanson will broadcast LIVE from Newhouse!
Tune in on March 23, 2023, starting at 8:44 a.m. when NFL RedZone’s Scott Hanson ’93 anchors 16 live shows from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications studios, with David Barbier ’23 hosting various segments from the Schine Student Center and Club 44. View the broadcast schedule to see the full list of interviews, prerecorded videos and student performances to enjoy throughout the day.
2. Free snacks and Syracuse swag
Visit select locations for treats and merch while supplies last. Start your day with a hot cocoa bar, complete with marshmallows, whipped cream and sprinkles. Make your own trail mix creation and an orange float, and grab a half-moon cookie and an orange as an afternoon pick-me-up. Across campus, tables hosted by schools, colleges and units will feature fun activities and delicious snacks. View the full list of events to plan your day. At each table, grab some Boost the ’Cuse branded merchandise, including pennants, charging cables, reusable coffee sleeves and more.
3. Visit with Otto
Everyone’s favorite Orange mascot will be in the Schine Student Center at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. for high-fives, hugs and photos.
4. Crafts across campus AND a 360
On campus, don’t miss out on the fun activities available to everyone! Get creative and stamp your own canvas zipper pouch at the Barnes Center at The Arch or color your own 1.5-inch pin-back button at the Schine Student Center. And, be sure to stop by the 360-degree photo booth in Schine’s lower atrium near the video wall to snap a unique keepsake.
5. Hidden Ottos
As part of Forever Orange Week, 20 plush Ottos will be hidden around campus. Follow @SUalums on social media for clues and be the first to find an Otto to win a prize pack. For each Otto discovered, $100 will be donated to a fund of your choice on behalf of the Generation Orange Leadership Council and the Syracuse University Alumni Association. Plus, that donation will be matched with another $100 by the Chancellor Challenge, meaning each Otto is worth $200.
6. Support the part of campus that’s important to you.
Boost the ’Cuse empowers you to support any area that resonates with you, whether it’s a specific school, college or program. Your generosity can make a significant impact and help students achieve their goals. Unlock challenge dollars to make your gift go even further.
7. Happy Birthday ’Cuse!
As the day comes to an end, we’ll join together to sing Happy Birthday to Syracuse University on the live broadcast! Although Boost the ‘Cuse will be over, our celebration continues on Friday, March 24, at 2 p.m. in the Schine Center with the annual Chili Cookoff, where you can taste the best recipes from the University community and vote for your favorite. Wear your best Orange and enjoy photo booths, trivia and sweet birthday treats. This event is sponsored by the Forever Orange Student Alumni Council, Office of Student Engagement and the Office of Alumni Engagement.
This is a time for us all to unite, support Syracuse University and demonstrate our unwavering Forever Orange spirit. Are you ready to Boost the ’Cuse?
