The Friends of SU (FSU) is celebrating 47 years of Networking and building relationships across the nation. Established in 1977 -Still building relationships today!
Since the inception (1975) in a small apt. uptown in NYC, Ed Brown(Mwalimu K-q Asata) '69, G'71 along with a few more Alumni of color banded together to rekindle their strengths, life experiences, and knowledge. They set forth to aid and assist their fellow alums and the future alums who would need a rich resource to survive in their coming years. This was the beginning of FAMILY. Forty-Sev years later, we are still in touch, meeting and greeting virtually and in-person safely when we can. The
The Friends Alumni Organization (FSU) is an organization composed of African American and Latino alumni who graduated or attended Syracuse University. In addition, The Friends help to bridge the gap between alumni and students with annual events that help to establish a strong rapport. We have accomplished plenty since our inception and the new millennium only promises a world of exciting events. The Friends collaborated with the then (Office of Program Development) now S.U.M.A.(Syracuse University office of Multicultural Advancement) to present the Coming Back Together reunions of African American and Latino alumni in 1983. Formerly a Chartered Alumni Club with the University, The Friends have returned to its roots and has dedicated its continued mission to network with alumni nationally and internationally. Currently, The Friends are working to establish Ambassadors across the United States (FS-USA).
FSU connects you from Campus to the Orange Nation community! We are here to help guide students and Alumni in the real word and on campus.

These Meet-Ups are designed to bring Alumni, friends, and family together during an average "Hanging-Out" moment. National Meet-up Groups: Alumni Meet-up Groups are about connecting people with something in common. From activities you love and hobbies you want to try, to ways you identify yourself and who you want to be, a Meet-up group is a community. A community of people who come together because they care about the same thing. Comedy, first-time parents, Line Dancers, aspiring circus performers, coders… you name it, there’s a good chance there’s a Meet-up group for it (and if there isn’t, maybe you should create one). While the connections begin online, the real memories are made at these events. Meet-up events are real-life gatherings where members and organizers get together to connect, discuss, and practice activities related to their shared interests.
