Central Orange 2022 in Photos

Orange Central is Syracuse University’s annual reunion and homecoming celebration, and this year’s festivities brought nearly 1,500 attendees from 48 states to campus to celebrate their love for Syracuse.

The weekend featured reunions, the long-awaited alumni awards celebration, academic “Back to the Classroom” programs, a cookout on the Kenneth A. Shaw Quadrangle, a family-friendly and spirited tailgate before the football game and Wagner, and of course, the 59-0 undefeated football team.
