Kenia

The school is best known for our basketball team as well as certain schools like New House and Whitman.

Sarah

Syracuse University, aside from class studies, is best known for our men's basketball team. Just this past season we made it to the final four and although we weren't able to secure the win, our school spirit never waivered. We backed our boys through the entire season and were there through the ups and downs. Syracuse students and alumni are no fare weather fans and support our team through thick and thin. When people think of Syracuse not only do they think of the frigid cold, but they think of an amazing basketball program. Bleed orange!

Our school is best known for its Law School, Newhouse, the basketball team, and the entertainment on campus.

Brianna

Socially, we are known for greek life, school spirit and basketball. Academically, we are known for top rated programs, courses, and professors; as well as staff that will help you on your way to finding a real job. It is a great place to learn and make friends and connections. It is a difficult school and is challenging, but you will get a lot out of it.

Jayme

Syracuse University has taught me a lot about myself and the world around me. I would never change anything about my choice in college because these are the years I am going to forever look back on. I have amazing relationships with professors and many students and I feel that the relationships I have with my friends will be friendships that I will have for a lifetime. There are so many positive things about this school and the enviornment. All the snow is well worth the amazing experience you will have here.

Tiara

People have different views on what Syracuse University is best known for. Some say it is best known for their sports teams and others may say it is due to certain schools within the university. In my opinion my school is best known for being so prideful in who we are as a university and what we stand for. Syracuse University has such a strong foundation and thats why we can be proud and prideful about our athletes, students, professors and individual schools within the university.

Top ranking of iSchool, Newhouse, and Maxwell school.

Madeleine

Syracuse University is best known for it's sports teams, especially in basketball. However that can be misleading because although we do have great sports programs we also have incredible academic programs and resources. One of the things that many people do not know is that in the "Theater World" Syracuse University is known for having one of the top ten Musical Theater programs in the country. The drama department works in conjunction with the Syracuse Stage so the students have the opportunity to work with professional directors, choreographers, stage managers, and even perform on stage with equity actors.

Amanda

The beautiful mountain campus, and the opportunity for research.

RJ

Syracuse is known for the Newhouse School of Communication. If you ask youth from the inner city, they will tell you that Syracuse is known for its School of Education and the time the education majors spend working with and tutoring at risk youth. To some, it may not be as exciting as working with celebrated television personalities but to others, like me, it is more exciting teaching a student how to solve a complicated math problem and seeing the look of joy on their face, when they conquer the problem.

Outside of sports (basketball, football, and lacrosse), I would say SU is best know for its academic excellence. SU has one of the best, if not the best, School of Information Studies, School of Communications, and School of Citizenship and Public Affairs. The faculty and staff are dedicated to educating their students 110% and every graduate I've ever come across agrees that they learned an enormous amount at SU. Every alumni I've come across since graduating 9 years ago is extremely proud to be considered a Syracuse University Alumni.

Along with the academics at Syracuse, the athletics are very competitive, competing at the Division I level. If one works hard, which is needed to succeed at Syracuse, there will be no problem to be able to participate in the many other activities around campus. Managing one's time is the best way to do well in school and have a social life that compares to no other college experience I've heard about.

Ankur

Syracuse's acedemic reputation is widely known. The biggest colleges are Architecture, Management, and Communications. But even the smaller schools like Engineering, which I am in, get the respect they deserve. Because of the big name and broad spectrum of classes offered, internships and job offers are all over the place. Some of the schools biggest partners are General Electric and JP Morgan Chase. There are alot of great smaller companies that recruit here too and puts alot of stress off especially in these hard economic times.

Syracuse is first known for their sports teams. Our basketball and lacrosse teams are nationally renowned. Syracuse is also know for its great diversity. At Syracuse, people of all ethnicity, genders, ages, religions, and sexual preferences are treated equally. When it comes to academics, the highlight of the school is the S. I.

This is not to say that the other schools at Syracuse are inferior; however, students at SU are given the opportunity to study many topics and attain a truly well-rounded education.
