What’s Syracuse Graduation Like?
It’s that time of year again, and Syracuse University is sending off its next batch of the best and brightest with a commencement ceremony that’s sure to touch hearts and minds.
Syracuse University Graduation is not just a moment—it’s an entire weekend. Different schools and colleges within the University host special convocations on the day prior to commencement to celebrate their achievements.
There’s excitement everywhere, as each school hosts events in different areas of campus. Tickets aren’t necessary for either event and there are ample facilities for guests with mobility limitations.
Be warned, though—downtown Syracuse is extremely busy this weekend, so be prepared for delays at local eateries and on roadways. Given the sheer number of visitors during this time, the best way to enjoy a relaxing Syracuse graduation weekend is to stay close to the University.
Stay at the Marriott Syracuse Downtown for a Stress-Free Graduation Experience
Commencement is fun but stressful. Take some of the anxiety out of the weekend by staying at the Marriott right here in Downtown Syracuse, only four minutes from the University.
A historic hotel with award-winning accommodations, our opulent surroundings will have you charmed from the moment you step inside. We’ve got two on-site restaurants to make finding delicious food easy, and of course, there’s room service if you’re feeling weary by the end of the day.
With lodging that provides every amenity you could need, you can simply relax and enjoy the moment.
