As Syracuse University turns 144 on March 24, the campus is engaged in daylong activities ranging from signing a giant birthday card to eating cake.

To celebrate Syracuse University’s 144th birthday on March 24, a campus-wide party has taken Schine Student Center, Ernie Davis Hall, the Life Sciences Complex and Sadler Hall by storm. A very orange storm, that is.
