Anthony Abeja

My name is Anthony and I’m a dual major sophomore in the College of Arts & Sciences and the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. In the College of Arts & Sciences, I am currently undeclared in regards to my major, but I am leaning towards the social sciences. In Newhouse, I’m majoring in Television, Radio, and Film. Being in the dual major program has allowed me to get hands-on experience with my communications classes in Newhouse while also affording me the mind-expanding concepts and ideas of a liberal arts education. Both schools provide a rigorous and tough curriculum, but they definitely work hand-in-hand and I’m really appreciative of that.

Being from Miami, FL, I’m a long way from home, but Syracuse University hasn’t really made me feel out of place. There’s a niche here for everybody and with over 20,000 students, there’s always someone new to meet. That may seem like a lot of people, but Syracuse is also one of those special places that feel small enough to get a real sense of community. Whether it’s in sports or art, community service or business, etc., anyone can find a network of friends, advisors, and like-minded peers. Just being part of the Orange community provides lots of people with the sense of school spirit that’s hard to find in other schools… Go Orange!

My name is Caitlin Grimm and I’m a Senior in the College of Arts and Sciences at Syracuse University. I’m from Buffalo, NY and I’m currently pursing a degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry and a minor in IT. These past four years at Syracuse have been some of the absolute best years of my life. Despite the cliché nature of that statement, I can confidently say I wouldn’t trade my time at Syracuse for anything. From the classes I’ve taken and the vast knowledge I’ve gained, to the friends I’ve met and the memories I’ve created here, my experience at SU has been nothing short of incredible. When I was younger, Syracuse had always been my “dream school”, but little did I know just how truly great it would be once I got here. Initially, the breathtaking campus pulls you in, but what keeps you here are the dedicated and attentive professors, coupled with a beyond-expansive course selection that allows you to cater your academic experience to make it uniquely yours. Then, on top of the exceptional academic elements, the student dynamic on campus is better than I could’ve dreamed. The population of students is large enough that I am constantly meeting new people, but then within each college and major, you begin to see the same faces of both professors and classmates, which allows students to have the “small college” feel, while still reaping the benefits of attending a larger university. Syracuse has provided me endless lessons that I know will propel me forward in any career path I embark down after graduation. The opportunities afforded to me here, and the relationships I’ve created with faculty and life-long friends will provide a solid foundation that will undoubtedly support me throughout the rest of my life.

Mia Guy

Hello, my name is Mia Guy and I am sophomore at Syracuse University studying African-American Studies, Women and Gender Studies, and Citizenship and Civic Engagement. Last year, moving to Syracuse, New York was a big transition from Texas, but I traveled to SU to become a triple major, experience new cultures, and broaden my horizons. A year later, I can honestly say that it was the best decision I ever made! Just in these two years, I have experienced mind-blowing classes, phenomenal guest speakers, internship opportunities, Caribbean dancing, community service through mentoring, and lifelong friendships. At Syracuse University, the possibilities are endless!
