The A&S Community: In It Together

Sharing smiles over the miles

While the COVID-19 pandemic kept us physically apart, the bond that connects the A&S family remained as strong as ever. We asked faculty, staff and students to share what helps them stay productive, happy and connected during the pandemic. Take a look at the gallery below. We hope the creativity and flexibility shown inspire you and spread a little bit of cheer.

We are still interested in sharing your photos. Email us at We love selfies of you remotely learning or working (pets or family welcome), nature views or your favorite culinary creation. Even a handmade sign with words of encouragement for all of us work too! #ArtsSci2Gether

"If you’re struggling, know that you’re not alone. The Syracuse Orange Family is large, vast, deep and as strong as we’ve ever been. Whether you’re a freshman, in the class of 2020 or any other year, or an alum, we will get through this together. Arts & Sciences alumni and the entire Orange Nation are here to support you, because we are SU!"

"Shift your focus to video meetings and treat them as if they are in-person. Dress for success, be flexible, candid and sincere, ask questions, make eye contact and hold your heads up high. You are students of Syracuse University and you should exude Orange Pride!"
