Several agencies respond to emergency calls from student witnesses.

The SU hill was abuzz Monday as students made their way to their first classes of the semester when a professor unexpectedly collapsed outside of Huntington Beard Crouse (HBC) Hall around 11:30 a.m.

Students who witnessed the episode immediately called 911, and within minutes, Syracuse city firefighters and campus emergency medical personnel arrived at the scene near the Quad.

A large crowd of students and professors gathered around, looking on in concerned silence as EMS team members administered CPR and worked vigorously to revive the fallen man.

SU students react to the first batch of H1N1 vaccines distributed on campus.

After Syracuse University Health Services reported last week more than 400 cases of swine flu, doses of the H1N1 vaccine were distributed Friday to the 200 students who pre-registered.

Free tickets for the H1N1 vaccine were given out to students Thursday morning on a first-come, first-serve basis. On Friday, those who had tickets were assigned time slots to go to the Health Services center and get the vaccine in the form of a nasal spray.

H1N1 concerns and attention result in largest Syracuse campus clinic ever.

UPDATE: The next flu clinic is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 15. at Flanagan Gymnasium, beginning at noon until the vaccine is gone. Students should bring their student I.D. and wear loose clothing that allows their upper arm to be exposed.

“Ooooww!” Bryce Shulman yelled as the nurse pulled the needle out of his arm. 

Nearly 150 students lining the basketball court looked over at the 6-foot-tall, third-year film major.

“Just kidding,” Shulman said, smiling to the crowd.
