Welcome Rochester Alumni!

We serve SU alumni and friends in the Rochester area — with a combination of social and sporting events, community service activities, and scholarship. All of our events are open to the public. We plan a great lineup each year, including mixers, career development seminars, bus trips to sporting events, guest speakers from the University, game watches at local pubs, volunteer activities, our annual banquet, and more! Please see our photo gallery for last year’s events with Lawrence Moten, Pearl Washington, Roland Williams, the SU Marching Band, and more…

Scholarship

More than 60 years ago, SU alumni led by current Honorary Board Member, Sam Brundage, founded the Syracuse University Alumni Club of Rochester Scholarship Fund, making it one of the oldest such funds for SU students in the nation.

Scholarships are funded by donations from generous club members. Donations are acquired from direct giving throughout the year, and all proceeds from our events are contributed to this fund. While attending SU, many alumni have received some form of financial aid or scholarships.
