A Spring Full of Activity

School on Wheels Volunteer DayLast month was a particularly busy one for the Syracuse University Alumni Club of Boston, with several events and volunteer opportunities for alumni of all ages.

On April 2, the University hosted an Admitted Student Reception at the Newton Marriott for students accepted into the Class of 2020. Alumni club board members sat on a panel with a current SU student, a parent, and a college dean, to answer questions and speak about the impact Syracuse has made on their lives. Hopefully many guests chose to join the Orange family!

April 5 marked the first in a series of breakfast networking events the alumni club plans to host over the coming months. “Becoming a CEO” featured Frank Britt ’88, CEO of Penn Foster and Boston Regional Council member, who shared his experiences, insights, and tips for success.

The following weekend, alumni and friends gathered to support a good cause, volunteering for School on Wheels in honor of National Orange Day. The organization’s mission is to help children impacted by homelessness, providing academic support and one-on-one mentoring so they can reach their full potential. Volunteers (pictured above) filled backpacks with school supplies for children in the tutoring program.

Finally, Syracuse alumni had another networking opportunity on May 4—this time with alumni from other ACC schools. “ACC After Hours,” held the first Wednesday of every month, is a fun, informal gathering for Boston-area ACC alumni.

Feeling like you missed out? Don’t worry—the alumni club has some great plans in the works for this summer and fall. Stay tuned for more information!
