Surveying the university’s chronological history, with special focus on how Syracuse led the way in numerous important matters—gender, race, military veterans, and science—Forever Orange goes far beyond the parameters of a traditional institutional history.

Through narrative and hundreds of photos, Forever Orange presents SU’s glorious 150-year history in a lively, distinctive, informative manner, appealing to alumni and university friends, young and old.
