A tumultuous political landscape in Turkey has led to curiosity about SU Abroad's center in the country.

Syracuse University Study Abroad recently ranked as one of the nation’s leading cohorts for international exchange and collaboration according to U.S. News and World Reports. Now with eight fully functioning SU abroad campuses, dozens of summer and short-term programs and more than 100 World Partners, traveling abroad is becoming an increasingly popular component of an SU student’s college experience.

Meet Nihan Can, a film senior from Turkey.

Nihan Can is no stranger to living in other countries.

The Turkish exchange student’s time at Syracuse University is the latest in a series of study abroad locations that has included Boston; Vila Real, Portugal; and Berlin, Germany. Can describes herself as a “super senior” at her university in Istanbul, Turkey, where she studies film.

Even with American culture pervasive in movies and television in Turkey, she wasn’t sure what to expect when she first headed to Northeastern University in Boston to learn English.

The photography exhibition at the Tech Garden demonstrates the ingenuity of local and international cell phone snapshot artists.

Cell phones have long surpassed their primary means of communication. They are now used to direct us from point A to point B, to make us dinner reservations and to calculate the direct percentage of tip money to leave the waiter. And thanks to the new gallery exhibit, Phonography, people can now showcase their cell phone photography in Syracuse for all to see.

If you're not going home for the holidays but crave an affordable home-cooked meal, check out these seven cozy local restaurants.

One day out of the year, we get together with people we love, share a meal and give thanks. But as students, not all of us can go home to our families for Thanksgiving. I set out on a mission: to find local restaurants open on Thanksgiving with great meals under $25. The catch? Each restaurant must have a fireplace, just like home. Home might not always be where your family is, but the hearth may just remind you of where you’re from.
