Student Life

Make the most of your Syracuse experience by getting involved. Get to know your faculty, staff, and classmates.

Beyond the classroom, consider becoming a VPA peer advisor,  joining a student group, holding a leadership position, seeking student employment, and getting involved in the community via Syracuse University’s Mary Ann Shaw Center for Public & Community Service. Whatever the combination, we encourage you to seek opportunities for personal and professional growth through activities that suit your goals and interests.
