WERW started the spring semester with sounds of Syracuse University favorites Feb. 8.

WERW’s Spring Launch Party jet streamed the largest student-run radio station into a fresh and new semester. The kick-off took place in the Schine Underground Center from 8-10 p.m. and showcased three top-notch acts: campus favorite Charlie Burg, Varsity, and long time friend Vundabar. General Manager Allison Carr was feeling bittersweet describing her role in setting up WERW’s launch party; this would be her last one.

The tips and tricks that will work to help you spring into a summer body and get in good enough shape to handle whatever happens at Mayfest.

Though it may not feel like it with temperatures still wavering below freezing, spring is on its way and we 'Cuse students are scrambling to get prepared. Spring in Syracuse is a wonderful thing, and not just because it means that we can finally walk to class sans parkas. In the final months of the school year we see tons of fun, outdoor events. From day parties to Mayfest, there are plenty of socially-driven events coming up that we will want to look our best for.

Every spring, Howard LaFever faithfully harvests sap from 400 sugar maple trees in Morrisville.

Howard LaFever has been making maple syrup since he knew how to walk.

Back then, he and his siblings would collect old cardboard boxes and fall asleep next to the hearth in the sugar shack as their father and grandfather boiled sap late into the night.

Today, many years later, LaFever is an accomplished engineer, he is married and he has children and even grandchildren. Unofficially living by the “work hard, play hard” motto, LaFever collects antique and modern race cars — and don’t let his age fool you, this grandpa races. And he wins.

Why not switch it up this year by covering your matzo in chocolate?

Hello again, aspiring vegans! Spring has sprung! Sort of. Syracuse is a few weeks behind the rest of the country, but as we roll into April the temperature will rise to a sweltering 50 degrees (or we'll get another freak snowstorm - either way).

According to my Facebook newsfeed, this week is Passover and this coming weekend is Easter. And what are holidays without a little something to nosh on?  Don’t worry though, we’ll definitely keep the bunnies and chicks in dark chocolate form.

After weeks of criticism from students, up-and-coming house DJ Kaskade, alt-rockers Cold War Kids and Phantogram are set to entertain thousands in the Carrier Dome.

Is anyone going to Block Party this year?  That might be a question you hear around campus lately.

After University Union announced last month Block Party 2012 would feature DJ Kaskade and alt-rock act Cold War Kids, some students quickly vocalized their displeasure for the choices. 

Past Block Parties brought acts such as Kid Cudi, Nas, Kanye West and N.E.R.D., so expectations for big name artists this year were high again.

For the first time in 20 years the SU football will be split in to two separate squads. Here’s how the team is shaping up for its game on Saturday, April 16 in the Dome.

Offense

Quarterback - Senior Ryan Nassib has clearly locked up the starting spot with a solid performance throughout spring practice. There is still some concern about overthrowing his receivers, something he has done regularly during practice, but that chemistry should develop before next fall.

Every spring, Critz Farms holds its annual Maple Syrup Celebration. Visitors to the farm find out exactly how the real maple syrup they drizzle over their pancakes is made, from tree to bottle.

“This is way better than IHOP,” said Syracuse University senior Joe Frandino.

At IHOP, Frandino and his friends would have eaten their pancakes with the gelatinous, dark brown, high-fructose corn syrup concoction commonly known as imitation maple syrup.  In their search for an off-campus Sunday morning activity, they discovered Critz Farms and its delicious homemade maple syrup.
