About Syracuse University

Syracuse University, located in upstate New York, is sometimes referred to as 'Cuse or SU. A private research, higher education institution, Syracuse University maintains a relationship with the Methodist church. Highlighting a diverse array of buildings with styles ranging from modern to 19th and 20th century styles, Syracuse University is divided into thirteen unique schools, with subjects encompassing disparate fields such as library science, engineering, and business administration. Athletics are important at SU; their teams, referred to as the Orange, extend to include football, rowing, and hockey.

Syracuse University opened its doors in September 1871 in downtown Syracuse. George F. Comstock, who envisioned the school as a university on a hill, donated farmland for its campus. President Peck, the first head of Syracuse University, re-avowed the school's coeducational policy in his opening address. As a result, a large number of women enrolled, bringing the gender ratio to roughly even. Many of the extracurricular activities were open to both men and women. This spirit of coeducation can be linked to Genesee College, Syracuse University's predecessor, who educated notable suffragists like Belva Lockwood.

In the late 1880s, Syracuse University experienced a building boom as several buildings, constructed in the Romanesque style, were erected. These notable buildings continue to act as a symbol of Syracuse University and are affectionately known as the "Old Row". Syracuse University continued to attract talented students as its reputation increased. In particular, its courses in modern languages, architecture, and sciences brought the university renown. Just a few years after opening its door, Syracuse University designed the first undergraduate fine arts degree and first post graduate program. In the early twentieth century, a doctoral program was added to its educational roster. A journalism school was inaugurated in the 1930s.

Two men contributed greatly to Syracuse University's growth from a sleepy liberal arts school to preeminent university. Chancellor James Day and President of the Board of Trustees John Archbold both gave the university generous donations of time and money to transform it into the prestigious university it is today.

At the conclusion of World War II, the school began to metamorphose into a major research institution. The G.I. Bill and many returning soldiers anxious to get an education contributed to its enrollment growth. Extra branches were founded to serve the developing body of students. Research continued to be a mainstay of Syracuse University and in 1966, the school was admitted to the Association of American Universities.
