About Syracuse University:

Syracuse University, within driving distance of Toronto, Boston, Montreal and New York City, is home to more than 20,000 enrolled students, from over 123 different countries. It has 12 academic units, including the Graduate School, the School of Information Studies, the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs and the David B. Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics. In 1874, just four years after its founding, the university offered the very first bachelor of fine arts (B.F.A.) degree in the United States. To this day the College of Visual and Performing Arts is highly reputed and produces eminent alumni, including visual artist Sol LeWitt who received his BFA from Syracuse University in 1949. Syracuse University also founded one of the first schools of journalism in the country in 1934, which would become the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. Currently, minority students make up more than a quarter of all enrolled students. In fact, the university has a long history of promoting diversity and inclusion since its founding as a coeducational university. In 2005, Syracuse University was named one of 81 ‘Colleges with a Conscience’ for its outstanding community involvement, including responsible university policies, financial support, political activism and civic engagement. Since the Second World War Syracuse University has been putting effort into transforming from a liberal arts college into a world-leading research university, by adding programmes and staff to focus on medical research, social work, engineering and other disciplines. Syracuse’s athletic teams are known as the Orange, after the school’s official colour. Sports teams have reached 28 national championships. The university is spread over two campuses – Main campus and South campus - and additional building in downtown Syracuse. Most academic buildings and halls of residence are on the main campus, where a historic district of older buildings has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
