Newhouse 2 – the bunker-like building between I.M. Pei’s iconic Newhouse 1 and the sweeping glass structure of Newhouse 3 designed by Polshek Partnership Architects – has stood as a concrete-clad box since 1974, unwelcoming to the public and confusing students with its dark interior layout.

Today, the school unveiled the new face of Newhouse 2: a bright, double-tier, glass curtain wall that extends from the front of the building on Waverly Avenue.

The "Queen of All Media" helped dedicate the new Dick Clark Studios and Alan Gerry Center For Media Innovation.

A woman who needs no introduction – Oprah Winfrey, the “Queen of all Media,” came to Syracuse University and dedicated the Dick Clark Studios and Alan Gerry Center For Media Innovation today.

During her speech in the Goldstein Auditorium, Oprah reigned supreme. Shaking hands, acknowledging the screaming and swooning students with a wave, and taking selfies, she commanded the crowd.
