For the 21st year, Syracuse University will welcome nearly 100 fifth-grade students from the Syracuse City School District’s (SCSD) Seymour Dual Language Academy. Called Shadow Day, this tradition for both Syracuse University and Seymour has become a day that both fifth graders and college students look forward to. The event is taking place this year on Thursday, April 25 and is run by the Office of Community Engagement.
Current Syracuse University undergraduate students are needed to be volunteers on Shadow Day; students must be available from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on April 25. As part of their duties, students will be paired with fifth grade students to spend the day with. In the morning, the pair will eat breakfast, attend a welcome program and take a group photo. From 10:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. students take the fifth grade students around campus or to an academic class to show students a piece of their student life, and they will have lunch at Schine Student Center.
Students interested in volunteering, must fill out the Shadow Day volunteer form by April 1st. Before Shadow Day, they must attend a training briefing. Date and time of the training are to be determined, but accommodations will be set for those unable to make the first option.
Interested students can contact Emily Winiecki, program coordinator in the Office of Community Engagement, with questions.
