Located on a picturesque residential campus in the heart of New York state, Syracuse University is a private, co-ed college known for its academic rigor as a research university and its blend of professional education and liberal arts programs. Students are also known for their abilities to party: In 2014, SU was named No. 1 party school in the nation by the Princeton Review. When they're not at the latest Orange sporting event or toga party, the school of 21,000 students is also driven by an array of hands-on opportunities, including internships, international study and access to more than 300 clubs and organizations.
In addition to its flagship campus in the city of Syracuse, about a five-hour drive from New York City, SU also offers online courses. In addition, there are numerous opportunities for a broader education, thanks to the eight international campus centers — in Beijing, Hong Kong, Florence, Strasbourg, Santiago, Madrid, Istanbul and London — and three U.S. centers, in New York City, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C.
