Welcome to the Newhouse School!

The Newhouse Visitors Center is “home base” for prospective undergraduate students (and their families) who want to learn more about their future at the Newhouse School. The Visitors Center staff offers daily in-person visitation, as well as a robust calendar of online offerings allowing prospective students to explore all facets of the school before applying. We look forward to meeting you!

For the month of January, the Newhouse Visitors Center will offer morning in-person visitation as requested. Please email if you plan to be on campus and we’ll work with your schedule to welcome your visit.

We’re ramping up online programming for the foreseeable future to offer robust and in depth ways to explore the Newhouse school from the comfort and safety of your home.

Virtual Events

Beyond the Big Game

The Super Bowl is the biggest sporting event of the year—not just for the players and fans, but for the media, advertisers, entertainers and producers who bring the show to viewers at home. We invite you to explore all aspects of the big game by joining attending one or all of these virtual events hosted by Newhouse faculty members.

Football Fandemonium

Tuesday, Feb. 8
6:30 p.m. EST

People often refer to sports, particularly football, as the new American religion. Being a fan, for many of us, is a defining part of who we are. Anne Osborne, professor of communications, will discuss sports fandom and how it goes well beyond mere entertainment; it’s about community, escape and catharsis. Wear your favorite team’s apparel! (Spoiler alert: Professor Osborne was born and raised in Steeler nation, so you know which team she’ll be representing!)

Rock the Show!

Wednesday, Feb. 9
6:30 p.m.

From J.Lo. to Shakira and Beyoncé to Lady Gaga, the halftime show is sometimes more highly anticipated than the actual game! Michelle Santosuosso, professor of practice in the Bandier Program, will discuss the history of the halftime show, how musical artists prepare and why it is now widely considered to be the most coveted live performance feature of the year.

Super-charged Ads

Thursday, Feb. 10
6:30 p.m.

With the growth of streaming video and connected TV viewing, Super Bowl advertising isn’t just about the “big game” anymore. Many advertisers reveal their ads before the game seeking to generate hype (and impressions). Beth Egan, associate professor of advertising—along with special guest Tessa Latrenta ’17, manager sports & Olympics planning at NBCUniversal—will show you how the game has changed and give you a sneak peek at some of the ads you’ll see on game day. You can even vote on your favorites!

More than Tackles and Touchdowns

Thursday, Feb. 10
8 p.m.

The Super Bowl is the biggest sporting event of the year—not just for the players and fans, but for the media and producers who bring the show to viewers at home. It entails months of preparation, thousands of people and too many cameras to count! Olivia Stomski, director of the Newhouse Sports Media Center, will provide a look behind the scenes and explain what it takes to make Super Bowl Sunday happen.

Friday Chats

Join the Newhouse Student Ambassadors on Fridays for a student-to-student chat. Feel free to ask our Ambassadors any questions about their experiences at Newhouse and Syracuse. Our Ambassadors represent a diverse student population and currently live on or around campus, know the ins and outs of the dining halls, and most are members of student groups and media organizations. Some have traveled abroad or completed one of our domestic launch programs, and all explored the City of Syracuse and surrounding area. They are here to answer your questions honestly and authentically from their perspective.
