SU's unofficial Quidditch team gives students something to talk about

You don’t have to be a Harry Potter fan to enjoy playing Quidditch. At least, that’s what Syracuse University students say about the sport sweeping the nation. Originally started as a human adaptation of the fictional wizard sport in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter books, Quidditch has become a fast-growing sport at colleges throughout the country.

At SU, both Potter groupies and newbies alike are welcome to join the unofficial team, which plays at the field near the Women's Building every Sunday.Those expecting magic wands and flying broomsticks might be surprised.

For over 50 years the Juggling Club has entertained the Syracuse community

It’s not too often that you see students juggling on a college campus, but at Syracuse University the juggling club has been a vibrant part of the campus community for over 50 years.  While the club currently has only seven members, it continues to entertain the Syracuse community with shows and events throughout the school year. 

There are many reasons club members participate.  According to senior Jack Furlong, club president, “Juggling is a great way for me to de-stress.  Sometimes when I’m tired of homework, I’ll head to the gym and juggle.”
