What Makes Your Syracuse University Experience Special?

Is it a cutting-edge academic program? An awesome professor? A much-needed scholarship? A fabulous semester abroad?

You can help other SU students have that same great experience. Just support whatever part of SU means the most to you with a gift to the Class of 2023 Giving campaign.

How much should you give? We suggest $20.23, but give whatever you feel comfortable with. Does your gift matter? Absolutely! Tuition covers only about 80% of the true cost of an SU education. Your gift helps close that gap.
