    School Overview

    Located on University Hill in Syracuse, Syracuse University, founded in 1870, traces its ties to the Genesee Wesleyan Seminary, established by the Methodist Episcopal Church. Beginning as a liberal arts co-educational college, the university experienced significant growth at the hands of Chancellor James Day and John Archbold, a capitalist and philanthropist who worked with John D. Rockefeller. By the conclusion of World War II, Syracuse formed its reputation as a research institution. Today, the highly notable private, not-for-profit university commits to its vision of “Scholarship in Action” that challenges students to lead with “intellectual capital.”
