Faculty and Staff Appreciation Day to Be Held Sept. 24 at the Stadium

Syracuse University will celebrate faculty and staff with $5 football tickets at the stadium on Friday, Sept. 24, when the Orange take on Liberty  at 8 p.m. 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 350 full-time, part-time or temporary faculty and staff with a faculty or staff SU I.D. to visit the University’s pregame Faculty and Staff Appreciation tent on the Shaw Quad will receive a game day gift and a $5 concession coupon.

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. 20 will be eligible for the drawing. Winners will be notified prior to game day.

Additionally, the Campus Store in the Schine Student Center will offer a 20% discount to faculty and staff on Sept. 24.


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. Tickets can be purchased until the day of the event. For more information on public health protocols in place for game day, please review the stadium’s COVID-19 guidelines on Cuse.com.


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 for pickup on Wednesday, Sept. 22, and Thursday, Sept. 23, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Office of Human Resources, Skytop Office Building, with proof of a Faculty and Staff Appreciation Day game ticket and an SU I.D.
