STOP Bias is an educational campaign dedicated to preventing acts of bias on the SU campus.
The BE Wise campaign strives to generate awareness of alcohol poisoning, how to avoid it, its signs, and how to respond to it.
As you enter this period of tremendous change and prepare to join our community, the Office of First-Year and Transfer Programs (FYTP) will be with you every step of the way. We are devoted to helping you make a successful and fulfilling transition to SU. From the day you are accepted (as a first-year or transfer student) throughout your SU career, FYTP is your partner in academic excellence, getting to know our environments, and starting your experience with confidence!
Here at SU, you'll grow as a scholar, leader, and citizen. The First-Year Experience is dedicated to providing you with opportunities in and out of the classroom to apply your skills and talents to affect positive change. In this first year at SU, you will deepen your understanding of issues affecting communities, build relationships with others, and work together to solve problems in the real world, right now.
We are here to improve the academic and social experiences of all transfer students. Together with the Syracuse University community, we aim to provide programs and resources that will help ease the transition for transfers to life here at SU!
The SU community and the Office of First-Year and Transfer Programs are committed to helping first-generation college students adjust to the college experience by offering a variety of opportunities and resources, from academic support to social activities.
The Office of First-Year and Transfer Programs is your host for Syracuse Welcome and Winter Welcome, our new student orientation programs. These programs entail academic and social activities to help you make a successful transition to Syracuse University.
