College Survival Guide

From healthy eating to parking to staying safe — find out how to meet your daily needs and address some basic concerns while at Syracuse University.

When you arrive at a new destination — a university, for example — one of the biggest challenges you face is figuring out how to fulfill your basic needs: figuring out how to eat well without spending a lot of money, transportation, safety and security, good study spots, you name it.

We have produced stories to help students navigate the very concerns at the top of their minds. Are there other "how-to" stories that interest you? Let us know.
