The 70-year-old SU tradition has shifted from ensuring freshman wore identifying beanies to helping them move their belongings from packed cars to residence halls.

Every August freshmen arrive at Syracuse University with cars filled to the brim with items to be unloaded, and each year they’re met by the Goon Squad to make that process easier.

The group, which is celebrating its 70th anniversary, comprises upperclassmen clad in orange T-shirts who take each freshman’s belongings and place them in large bins that are wheeled into the students’ new homes. This year's freshmen class includes approximately 3,500 students.
