Join Us for Faculty and Staff Appreciation Day Sept. 28 at the Dome

Syracuse University will celebrate Faculty and Staff Appreciation Day with $5 football tickets at the Dome on Saturday, Sept. 28, when the Orange takes on Holy Cross at noon. Faculty and 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 an SU I.D. to visit the University’s pregame Faculty and Staff Appreciation tent on the Quad will receive a game-day gift and a $5 concession coupon. Sept. 28 is also Fan Appreciation Day, and family-friendly activities will be featured on the Quad.

A few days prior to the game, a drawing will be held to invite faculty and staff members to enjoy an enhanced game-day experience. Those who have purchased tickets prior to Sept. 25 will be eligible for the drawing. Winners will be notified prior to game day.


The ticket price is $5 each for University faculty and staff, their children and their guests (up to a limit of 10). Faculty and staff may purchase tickets online, in-person at the Dome Box (now located at the Ensley Athletic Center) or over the phone by calling 315.443.2121 (press 2). Tickets can be purchased until the day of the event. For more information on game-day rules, please visit


University parking permits will be honored for free game-day parking at the Skytop parking lot. For faculty and staff who do not already have University parking permits, a single one-time-use complimentary Skytop parking pass will be available for game day. These permits will be available Sept. 23-25 at the Office of Human Resources with proof of a Faculty and Staff Appreciation Day game ticket and an SU I.D.

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