In anticipation of one of the biggest games of the year, students have been camping out at the Carrier Dome for the best seats at Saturday's SU-Villanova showdown.

There is a buzz surrounding the SU campus this week, and it’s not because students are back for spring semester classes. Saturday, the third ranked men’s basketball squad will welcome seventh ranked Villanova into the Carrier Dome.

Traveling from Syracuse to South Africa on the tail end of the East Coast blizzard that shut down airports, trains and any helpful means of transportation made for a slow build-up to the exciting reporting experience nine Newhouse students were embarking on.

A Remembrance Scholar gets to know the Pan Am Flight 103 victim she represents.

When I became a Remembrance Scholar, I anticipated spending a lot of time in university archives learning about an exceptional, far away person who died too soon. I imagined talking about the Pan Am 103 tragedy with current scholars, and readied myself for many a weepy phone call home to my mom.

All of that came true. But what I didn’t realize before this process began was the connection I would make with the families of the victims of Pan Am 103, the message they would have for us, and how close I would feel to the tragedy, despite the distance.

PostSecret creator Frank Warren brings the comedy and confessions to Syracuse University.

Frank Warren has a ton of secrets.

No, really. Warren stores in Tupperware bins every single PostSecret message ever mailed to him. And yes, he estimates that all the secrets — more than half a million in five years — literally weigh at least a ton.

In 2005, Warren started PostSecret, a continuous art project where people anonymously mail secrets to his home in Germantown, Md. They range in topic, from loneliness and suicide to love and jokes. He posts new secrets online each Sunday.

Six decades later, SU's Class of 1950 returns to reminisce about the campus that changed them.

More than half a century ago, Ed and Elaine London met on a blind date for his fraternity formal. The two returned to campus for a class reunion Friday — on their 60th wedding anniversary.

“It didn’t go anywhere for quite a while,” Ed said of their relationship after his Zeta Beta Tau formal.

“We were both busy,” Elaine chimed in. But after winter vacation, they went on another date. “And one thing led to another,” she laughed.

Three Syracuse University alumni perform in the national tour of "A Chorus Line," coming to the Crouse Hinds Theater.

Syracuse alumnus Nick Nerio got a special Christmas present when he was 10 years old: the original Broadway cast recording of A Chorus Line.

“I wore out the CD listening to it,” Nerio said. “I just love the opening number as the director calling out, ‘step, kick, kick, leap, kick, touch’ and you can hear the dancers doing the steps. I just fell in love with it.”

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.
