For students in New York City who find themselves missing The Hill, a trip to these locations will be a familiar reminder of SU.

While New York City can seem like a large, foreign place to any student that's fresh off of the Hill, there are certain places in New York that will seem familiar. These are the markers of Syracuse University in New York City: the Big Orange in the Big Apple. Click on an SU logo on the map above to see a video about each stop.

SU Athletic Director Daryl Gross made the announcement Thursday, where he was happy to reward the Orange with a trip to New York City for the Dec. 30 bowl.

Reviews: Choosing shows at the New York International Fringe Festival is an artistic risk, as two fringe shows indicate.

The New York International Fringe Festival can only be described by one word: random.

Random in shows, random in jokes, and random in quality.

This means that when choosing shows, there’s always the chance that it will either be a questionable decision or it may be the best show that you’ve seen this season.

For me, the two shows I saw during the festival embodied this random occurrence concept.

It can be tough to choose from among 200 comedies, musicals and dramas at the budget-friendly festival.

What happens when you have 200 plays, five days in New York City to see them, and a student budget?

The answer: Choose whichever one seems promising and pray that it’s worth the inexpensive $15 ticket. And this was the conundrum I found myself in during the second week of the New York International Fringe Festival.

Fringe Theater is theater that is non-mainstream, the type that is off-Broadway and not meant for mass appeal. In other words, no Wicked or Jersey Boys.

A review of "Wishful Drinking," a one-woman show performed by Carrie Fisher at Studio 54 in New York City.

About halfway through “Wishful Drinking” one begins to wonder for whom the show is intended.  Traditionally, theatre is performed to bring about an emotional response from the audience but “Wishful Drinking” balances that purpose with the needs of its creator and star.  The one-woman show is a vehicle for Carrie Fisher to take control of her demons by confronting them—in full view of an audience.
