150 Days of Service: Make an impact in your community

As Syracuse University celebrates its 150th Anniversary, the Orange family is invited to reach 15,000 hours of community service by March 24, 2020—National Orange Day!

150 Days of Service will bring together students, faculty, staff and alumni and partner them with non-profit organizations that identify service opportunities.

Beginning on Friday, Oct. 25, 2019, volunteers representing Syracuse University will underscore what it means to be Orange by sharing their time and talent in a variety of ways to improve their communities. Join us over the next 150 days and find a way to connect your passion with community action. Use #SU150 to share your story and what it means to be Orange.

Help us reach another 15,000 hours of service!
