2019 Lunar New Year’s Celebration

Syracuse University students, faculty, and staff are invited to a special cultural event in Slocum Hall to celebrate the upcoming New Year. International students at Syracuse Architecture are organizing the event in collaboration with Dean Michael Speaks.

A series of short presentations about East Asian culture and architecture, featuring School of Architecture faculty, is also planned.
