Syracuse has many traditions and weird facts that you may have not known about during your time here! Here are 10 interesting things you probably did not know about Syracuse University!

Makes those snow banks feel a little more special!
2. The dome is the largest dome in the northeast, as well as the largest college dome stadium.
The loud house structure is not very common.

“We did it first” can actually be used here.
4. Jim Boeheim received the record for most wins at a single University in 2012.
He is considered a god here for a reason.
5.Before we were Orange, we were pink and green.
Rose pink and pea green are not as intimidating as Orange, that’s for sure.

After Cuse dropped the Saltine warrior and changed our colors, students came to a game as an orange blob because they did not know what else to wear, and it stuck.
7. Faculty is a hidden gem on campus.
This restaurant style dining hall has a menu and waiters, but takes meal swipes. Definitely fun for a change in routine.

9. Hendricks Chapel.
The chapel on campus is the third largest college chapel. You can also find People’s Place in the basement.
10. People’s Place.
In the basement of Hendricks you can find this non-profit coffee shop. It is also the only place on campus where you can find Coke products, and if you go there when they have pastries you know you will have a good day.
