Syracuse University celebrates Employee Appreciation Day with $5 football tickets at the Dome on Saturday, Sept. 16 when the Orange takes on Central Michigan at 3:30 p.m. Employees and their guests are invited to the Shaw Quadrangle prior to the game to enjoy the Pride of the Orange Marching Band performance and food and beverage concessions.

The first 500 faculty and staff with an SU ID to visit the pre-game Human Resources tent  on the Shaw Quadrangle will receive a game day gift and a $5 concession coupon.

Prior to the game, a drawing will be held to invite employees to enjoy the game with game day guests in a private suite at the Dome. Another drawing will be held to invite up to 20 employees and their guests to the turf at Legends Field before the game.

In addition to welcoming alumni back to campus for Coming Back Together weekend, the game day theme is ‘Medical Appreciation Day,’ which will include a celebration of all medical professionals throughout the day.


The Syracuse University employee ticket price is $5 and employees are invited to purchase up to 10 tickets at that price with an SU ID. Employees may purchase tickets online through a MyCuse Account, in-person at the Dome Box Office, or over the phone by calling 315.443.2121 (press 2). Tickets can be purchased until the day of the event. The first 1,000 tickets purchased will be on the lower level of the Dome.


A University parking permit will be honored for free game day parking at the Skytop parking lot. One complimentary Skytop parking pass for faculty and staff (for those without a University permit) will be available Sept. 13-15 at the Office of Human Resources with proof of an Employee Appreciation game ticket and SU ID.
