The club helps out Admissions

Thanks to a half-dozen alums who helped support SU's Office of Admissions on April 6. Recruiter Lisa Raney (left) was in town to help persuade some admitted high school seniors to choose Syracuse as their college. The club members shared their thoughts and, in one case, her resaurant in the pursuit of the Class of 2019. See details here.

National Orange Day celebrated with spuds

Eight Stumptowners joined other volunteers at the Oregon Food Bank on March 28 to do some good and mark SU's 145th birthday at the same time. Above (left  to right) Jim & Ronnie Rudolph, Molly Gearn and Nelson Atkin all 'tatered down. Check out a photo summary of the day here.

Orange Central/Homecoming/Reunion Weekend set 

When our own George Gearn ('54) was a student on Piety Hill, one of his jobs was to fire the Archbold Stadium cannon whenever the Orange scored a touchdown.

Last fall, when George was back for his60th reunion, he found his old ordnance. What memories await you when you return to campus? Find out during Orange Central 2015 from Oct. 22 - 25. You can learn more about Homecoming activities by going to

A rare chance to meet an SU faculty member ... over a glass of wine

Many thanks to all who came out on Feb.  26 to see a thought-provoking playand meet a fine director and representative of our University.

Timothy Bond shared his thoughts on the play, Other Desert Cities, the SU Drama Department and Syracuse Stage.

A Night at the Symphony

We had a healthy group of 17 who came out to hear Carmina Burana on Feb. 7 at  the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall. The Oregon Symphony knocked it out of the park -- and the sold-out audience jumped to their feet in appreciation.

Speaking of sell-outs, a handful of folks missed out on this opportunity because they waited too long to order tickets. Don't make the same mistake with Other Desert Cities -- the best seat selection goes to the early bird!

Michael Cook ('82) and Mary Dickinson Jensen ('13) were elected our  club co-presidents at our annual meeting on June 11, 2014.
