In a SUNY-ESF classroom lies the Roosevelt Wildlife Collection, an assortment of 10,000 stuffed animal specimens that educate and inspire students to add their own finds to the collection.

Remove the skin from the body. That is what Tiffany Dellaventura, a senior conservation biology major at the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry, will do with the two baby raccoon carcasses she just pulled out of her backpack. She will pay careful attention when skinning their faces, because the face draws the most attention from viewers.

Despite having classes canceled on Monday and Tuesday, many students were not worried about the potential effects of the storm.

As Hurricane Sandy made its way along the East Coast yesterday, Syracuse University took precautionary measures to keep students and faculty out of danger.

A weather alert email distributed Monday morning informed the SU community that classes would be canceled until Wednesday, when the school is expected to resume its normal schedule. However, despite the potential dangers of Hurricane Sandy, SU students said they have not felt threatened and have used the two-day break to relax.

Elizabeth Kang, a health and exercise junior, said she feels safe and out of harm’s way.

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.

The first day back at SU is filled with signs of nerves, excitement and determination.

Approaching the Syracuse University campus at 10 a.m. this morning, it seemed a bit too calm for the first day of the fall 2009 semester. Nearing the Schine Student Center, the bustle and excitement began to pick up.

The network of sidewalks outside of Schine was crawling with students making their way to and from class, texting on their cell phones, waving to familiar faces across the grass, and catching up with old friends. Two, three, four, five girls in a row drinking Dunkin’ Donuts iced coffee exited Schine, taking advantage of the warm weather while they still could.

New course at SU teaches students about the cultural and social significance of hip-hop.

Where can the music of Lil' Wayne and Kanye West battle each other for audience applause?  Syracuse classrooms, thanks to a unique new class.
