A Message From Dean Ruhlandt

Congratulations and welcome, to the Class of 2023!  Whether you are new to A&S or are returning, the start of a new semester is always one of the most exciting times of the year.  This year promises to be especially exciting, as we mark the 150th anniversary of Syracuse University.  I, as well as our faculty, staff, alumni, and community, can't wait to meet you and see what you accomplish.
