Syracuse University’s new Chancellor is ready to make some changes and stake out some positions after completing his first semester on the job. WAER’s Chris Bolt reports Kent Syverud preaches transparency and is letting the public in on issues that affect campus and the local community.
SU students Adrianna Kam (left) and Allie Curtis (right) are entering a project at the Chancellor's inauguration that aims to improve self-esteem and promote leadership opportunities for teenage girls.
Massive tents on the quad, painters in the main entrance of Hendrick’s Chapel and a walk-through balloon bouquet were all indications Thursday that something of significance will be happening soon at Syracuse University. A full day of events will coincide Friday with the inauguration of a new chancellor. As part of the celebrations, Kent Syverud wanted to involve students by encouraging them to submit ideas for projects they would like to launch to improve the campus and local community. Allie Curtis is one of the contestants.
