The professional theater has partnered with the university's drama department for 40 years, allowing students to work alongside their professors, faculty and other professionals.

Scores of students sit outside the former Regent’s Theater, laughing, running lines and soaking up the sunshine. The plaza is lined with futuristic chrome walls, the light bouncing off almost blinding passersby.

The building behind the small set of walls is the Syracuse Stage. Patrons entering the lobby are met with a cool, shady atrium lined with photos from past and present shows.

A gaggle of eager prospective students show up to Syracuse Stage, hoping to gain entry to the Syracuse University Department of Drama.

New SUber company promises "Fair Fares" that also will eliminate long waits for campus buses.

UPDATE: We hope you enjoyed -- at least for a moment -- the idea that SUber may be a reality. Here is the story behind our April Fools' Day prank.

Don’t feel like waiting for a South Campus bus? Need to make a last minute trip to the mall for a big interview tomorrow? Feeling lazy –- or just plain cold -– and don’t feel like falling victim to central New York’s winter elements?

Say goodbye to buses, and hello to “allow me to get the door for you.”

While some Syracuse students hope to spend more time meeting new people others wish to concentrate on academic achievement.

For most of the world, the new year begins on Jan. 1. But for a great majority of American college students, the term, new year signifies something a little bit different: the first day of fall classes.

With just under 20,000 students on campus, Syracuse University is a place where undergraduate and graduate students alike come together to discover their passions and pursue their various goals and interests.

Cpl. Joe Shanley is known among students for his friendly disposition and genuine concern for their well-being.

He’s physically imposing and powerfully built at well over six feet tall. Add to that the uniform and gun, and Cpl. Joe Shanley of Syracuse University’s Department of Public Safety can come across as an intimidating figure.

Until he opens his mouth, that is.

After a sun-soaked first day of school warmed nervous freshman and relaxed upperclassmen alike, the countdown to May is officially on.

When freshman Justin Hoffman showed up to his calculus class Monday morning, the Carnegie classroom location he scribbled down was completely empty. In fact, it wasn’t a classroom at all –- just some kind of office.

Unfortunately for many of the 3,450 freshmen starting their Syracuse University careers Monday, Hoffman's not alone.

Obviously confused first-years gripped their printed MySlice schedules and campus maps, wandering the paths and searching for building names such as Hinds and Heroy halls.

SU students react to 168 new surveillance cameras placed near the entrances and exits of campus residence halls.

Syracuse University’s Department of Public Safety recently completed a long-term project to bring 168 surveillance cameras to campus residence halls and one academic building.

While the cameras are constantly rolling, DPS dispatchers are not always monitoring the footage.  If a crime occurs near an SU dorm, DPS officials will check the tape and see who has been hanging around the building.
