Welcome Central New Jersey alumni!

Our club was founded in 1988 for Syracuse University alumni who live and/or work in the Central New Jersey and the Jersey Shore areas. We host events during the year which include group seating at Syracuse University football, basketball and lacrosse games, social events such as game watches at local pubs and eateries, cultural activities such as museum tours, and, of course, our annual student send off. 


Upcoming events appear below as soon as they are confirmed.

The Central New Jersey Alumni Club provides two or three scholarships annually to upper class Syracuse students from the Central New Jersey area. The funds raised through membership dues and social/sporting events support the scholarship fund. Selection of the scholarship recipients is not determined by the alumni club but by the Syracuse University Office of Financial Aid based upon merit and financial need. For further information about the central NJ scholarship and other financial information please contact the Office of Financial Aid.
