Thank you, Professor Reed. My only remark today is to answer Senator Van’ Gulick’s question from the Jan. 24 meeting. To remind folks, he asked about reseating the JMA Wireless Dome this summer, which will make it much more accessible…
Faculty and Staff Appreciation Day to Be Held Sept. 9 at the JMA Wireless Dome
The University will once again celebrate its faculty and staff with discounted football tickets for the Saturday, Sept. 9, game at the JMA Dome when the Orange take on Western Michigan University with a 3:30 p.m. kickoff.
Faculty and staff and their guests are invited to the Kenneth A. Shaw Quadrangle prior to the game to enjoy a performance by the Pride of the Orange Marching Band and food and beverage concessions.
The first 400 full-time, part-time or temporary faculty and staff with a faculty/staff Syracuse University I.D. to visit the pregame Faculty and Staff Appreciation tent on Shaw Quad will receive a game day gift and a $5 concession coupon that can be redeemed at the JMA Dome.
The week prior to the game, a drawing will be held to invite faculty and staff members to enjoy an enhanced game day experience, either via seat upgrades or an upgraded concessions voucher. Those who have purchased tickets prior to Sept. 4 will be eligible for the drawing. Winners will be notified prior to game day.
Discounted tickets are priced at $10 each (300-level seating) or $15 each (200-level seating) for University faculty and staff, their children and their guests (up to a limit of 10). Faculty and staff may purchase tickets online. Tickets can be purchased until the day of the event.
Food Drive to Benefit the Salvation Army
The Office of Community Engagement will host a food drive to benefit the Salvation Army at the game. Food collection barrels, as well as red kettles for those who prefer to make a monetary donation, will be placed at locations around campus as you approach the JMA Dome. There will be a drop-off barrel located at the Faculty and Staff Appreciation tent, so be sure to bring a non-perishable item with you to help the cause!
University parking permits will be honored for free game day parking at Skytop parking lot and the Comstock Avenue garage. For faculty and staff who do not already have University parking permits, a single one-time-use complimentary Skytop parking pass will be available for game day. These permits will be available for pickup on Tuesday, Sept. 5; Wednesday, Sept. 6; and Thursday, Sept. 7, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Office of Human Resources, 621 Skytop Road, Suite 1001, with proof of a Faculty and Staff Appreciation Day game ticket and a Syracuse University I.D.
