Faculty and Staff Appreciation Day Is Sept. 22 at the Dome

Syracuse University celebrates Faculty and Staff Appreciation Day with $5 football tickets at the Dome on Saturday, Sept. 22, when the Orange takes on Connecticut at 4 p.m. Faculty, staff and their guests are invited to the Shaw Quad prior to the game to enjoy the Pride of the Orange Marching Band performance and food and beverage concessions.

The first 500 full-time, part-time or temporary faculty and staff with a SU I.D. to visit the pre-game Human Resources Faculty and Staff Appreciation tent on the Quad will receive a game day gift and a $5 concession coupon.

In the week prior to the game, a drawing will be held to invite faculty and staff to enjoy the game with their guests in a private suite at the Dome. Those who have purchased tickets are eligible for this drawing.


The ticket price is $5 each for Syracuse University employees, children and their guests. Faculty and staff may purchase tickets online, 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.


University parking permits will be honored for free game day parking at the Skytop parking lot. One complimentary Skytop parking pass is available for faculty and staff who do not already have University parking permits. These permits will be available Sept. 17-20 at the Office of Human Resources with proof of a Faculty and Staff Appreciation game ticket and SU ID.

Faculty and staff can share game day photos on social media for a chance to appear on the Dome videoboard using #CuseGameDay.
