Outdoor Historical North Campus Tour

The Syracuse University campus is alive with historical treasures that are usually overlooked by staff members who have been here for many years. The main purpose of the tour is to make you more aware of some of these treasures and to encourage you to make greater use of SU resources that you may never have even heard about. Marvin Druger, professor emeritus of Biology and Science Education, spent 47 years experiencing the wonders of SU and now he wants to share his knowledge with SU staff and others.
