Upcoming Events: Coloring Books for Kids, NRHH, Koppel/Langella and the author of “The Kite Runner.”


Looks like fun, right? Always lots going on at SU

I’m sure you’ve already heard about the big upcoming events involving John Legend and La Festa Italiana, but those aren’t the only things happening sooner (rather than later) at SU…

Serving Syracuse / Coloring Books for Kids: This week’s installment of Serving Syracuse involves a coloring book drive. You can access the coloring book here, then simply print it off and bind it. Afterward, drop it off at either the Booth or Kimmel main desk and we’ll take it from there. Stay tuned for Serving Syracuse to start becoming mobile at the end of Sept./beginning of Oct. when the service will be taken directly to the local Boys & Girls Club.

NRHH (National Residence Hall Honorary): This nationwide organization would like you to invite you to apply for membership. SU’s NRHH chapter is made up of the top 1 percent of leaders on the Syracuse University campus and you could recognized as one of them! If you have served the residence halls for at least a year, you are eligible to apply.

Members of NRHH work to recognize the efforts of all involved in the residence halls – from RAs to residents,  maintenance staff to programs. OTMs (or Of the Month awards) are given, as well as banquets and recognition ceremonies. Along with our recognition efforts, we strive to show the community that we are the top 1 percent of leaders by involving ourselves in service projects and other volunteer efforts.

The application deadline is October 5 with an induction ceremony held November 1.  Any questions can be directed toward your RD/ARD, but know that if you join you’ll get to work with some amazing advisors. Here’s an example of their recruitment work…

Khaled Hosseini, author of “The Kite Runner”: The world-reknowned author will be kicking off the SU lecture series on October 5 at Hendricks Chapel. The event is free to students so you should absolutely take advantage.

Frank Langella/Ted Koppel: A pair of famous SU alums will be coming to give a speech as part of SU’s Homecoming 2009. Langella is the Oscar-nominated actor most recently known for portraying Richard Nixon in the film Frost/Nixon. Koppel is a long-time journalist for ABC’s Nightly News. The event will be held at Syracuse Stage on October 1 and it’s also free for students.
