“Forever Orange” Book Highlights SU History and Alumni

Bridge Street

Syracuse University celebrates its 150th anniversary in 2020.  And two well-known alum have produced the ideal birthday present for any Orange fan. 

Scott Pitoniak is a nationally-known columnist and best-selling author.  Rick Burton is a professor and the University’s faculty athletics representative to the ACC and NCAA.  They are both graduates of SU’s Newhouse School. 

They’ve combed the Syracuse University archives to create “Forever Orange,” a coffee table book that chronicles the University’s history from its founding in 1870.  They cover campus life, athletic success, cultural growth and much more through narrative and hundreds of fascinating photos.  They share some of the stories behind the stories in this lively, detailed book that will surprise even the most loyal of Orange fans.
