This took place the week of February 25th and culminated on Employee Appreciation Day, March 1, 2019.

The Faculty and Staff Appreciation event that took place on Wednesday, February 27, included free coffee and dessert; relaxing free chair massages, information on professional development and wellness opportunities; gift raffles; opportunities to thank colleagues, and a bookstore discount coupon. There were demonstrations and presentations on yoga, and Qichong as well as a discussion on how to get involved with the Syracuse Community. Even Otto joined in on the fun.
