Chuck's Cafe

January 29, 2014 - 2:50pm
Chuck's and other local spots experienced a (small) British invasion this past week as the cast of TV's 'Campus Crashers' tried party like American college students.

Not even the frigid cold could keep these Brits from partying in the USA.

Over the course of the last week, the cast of Campus Crashers have been discovering what it is like to live (and party) like a Syracuse University student.

Syracuse University offers a number of one-year Master's degree programs. Undergrad and graduate students alike share their thoughts on how to best experience Syracuse University in that short amount of time.

Syracuse University is known for having a number of Master’s degree programs that can be completed in one year or less. This appeals to many applicants who desire an advanced degree, but who are eager to join the work force, and don’t want to spend years toiling away in a classroom. But for some, there is a downside to these short programs of study. Some graduate students feel that while they are getting an invaluable education, they are missing out on the SU experience.

Patrick Farrell talks bar brawls and overheard gossip at a popular college bar.

Patrick Farrell perches on a stool in a dimly lit corner of the bustling bar that’s filled with intoxicated college students. He wears a backward Yankees cap and a mustard-yellow T-shirt with a haunting clown face (the bar’s logo) scrawled across the front. After adjusting his cap and checking his watch, he continues scanning the crowd. To his right, students squeeze their way toward the bar to buy pitchers of beer. But as he looks to his left, he sees a man with his hands around another’s neck.

Chuck’s Cafe is like an old sneaker—comfortable, familiar and a little smelly.

Grimy, crowded, sweaty, and loud…what is it about Chuck’s that keeps students coming back for more? It might be the cheap Friday night pitchers. It could be the opportunity to write your name in Sharpie on every surface in sight. Or, maybe, it’s just that Cheers-esqe feeling of togetherness you get after a night of drinking with your closest pals. And here, almost everybody does know your name.
