Be prepared, this IS Syracuse! If you are not aware, the entire east coast has been having an exceptionally cool spring. In fact, snow showers are in the Syracuse forecast for Tuesday, April 17th! While we don't expect any accumulations, we do expect cool weather. The current forecast for rain/snow showers Friday (high of 47), and partly cloudy Saturday (high of 54).
Dress for the weather. Friday and Saturday are casual. We are encouraging sport coats for the banquet Saturday night.
Please be sensitive to the fact that it is a vastly different time and environment than when most of us were students. The consumption of alcohol on campus, including at fraternities and sororities is highly regulated by Syracuse University. Our events this weekend are subject to these policies. Our Friday night picnic is a registered event, and we are planning to have beer available. We ask for your patience and understanding on this topic, and request you do not bring any alcohol to the chapter house and comply with the regulations that will be in place for this event.
The actives and Alumni Corporation have been working hard for many months to pull together this weekend. We're excited to see everyone and are looking forward to a fantastic weekend. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us at this address. See you soon!
