The annual tradition continues at the Perinton Rec Center as we welcome the newest members of the Orange Family (and their parents).
Send-offs allow members of the Class of 2023 and their parents to get to know current students and other new SU families. These gatherings are a perfect way for new incoming students to kick off their time as a Syracuse University student. Registrants can have their questions answered by current students and alumni. All new students will receive a special Syracuse gift.
Come join us as we celebrate the 60th anniversary of SU’s undefeated National Championship football team and the current renaissance on the Hill at the Syracuse University Alumni Club of Rochester’s annual Scholarship and Awards Banquet at Monroe Golf Club on Thursday, June 20th.
Several members of the 1959 title team, including Pat Stark, Gerhard Schwedes and Dick Easterly, are scheduled to take part in a fire-side chat about the historic season that saw the Orange go 11-0. That team was coached by the legendary Ben Schwarwalder and featured Hall of Fame running back Ernie Davis, who two years later would become the first African American to win the Heisman trophy, presented annually to the top player in college football. SU became of of the first teams in college football to lead the nation in both total offense and total defense in the same season, and capped its No. 1 ranking with a 23-14 victory over second ranked Texas in the Cotton Bowl on New Year’s Day 1960.
We will be recognizing a number of Rochester area students as recipients of our Sam Brundage Scholarship and our 2019 SUAC Rochester Distinguished Alumni Award will be presented as well.

BRAVURA - The Life and Death of David Hochstein
David Hochstein was born the son of immigrant parents living in Rochester, New York at the beginning of the 20th Century. Growing up, he was soon recognized as a violin prodigy and studied with some of the finest violin teachers in the world. His future seemed set in music. But after America’s entry into the GREAT WAR in 1917, things changed for David. He became personally inspired by displays of “bravura” shown by great composers like Tchaikovsky and Beethoven. Despite the insistance of family and friends, he traded his violin for a rifle. Intermission will feature a performance by Hochstein students.
There will be a private wine and cheese reception at 6:00pm (included in ticket price) with a 7:30pm showtime and a talk back with the actors, playwright Stuart Loeb and (diehard Orange) director Don Bartalo after the performance.
$15.00 and must be reserved in advance NO LATER THAN NOVEMBER 9 by calling MuCCC @ 450-9933.

One of our favorite events of the year! This is a wonderful opportunity for our Club to welcome the newest members of our Syracuse Family. Students and their parents come and have a chance to ask questions of current students (& current parents) and make a connection with other students from the Rochester area.
We are always looking for current students, as well as recent grads, to join us and help answer questions (a lot has changed since some of us were undergrads). Last year, we even had a parent volunteer to help put the new parent's minds at ease. If you are available to help, we'd love to have you. Contact us for more information.
