Skyhalls Move-In 09

A very big thank you to all of the Skyhalls RA staff, move-in volunteers, goon squad members, ESF Orientation Leaders, Officer Joe Shanley, and SU Orientation leaders for an exemplary 1st day of Skyhalls opening. We moved in over 275 students in a 6 hour period. We are very excited for the year and are very happy to have you living with us.

Sky Staff Serves

On Tuesday August 25th the Skyhalls resident advisor staff utilized their final free time before hall opening to give back to the Syracuse community. The staff headed to the Salvation Army School Age program to share their expertise. The kids built bridges and paper towers, prepared eggs to survive a 8 ft drop, cooked s'mores in a pizza box solar oven, designed hover crafts, learned about the transfer of energy and the power of the four senses. Staff and kids both enjoyed the morning. Great job Skyhalls staff you are truly and example to others!
To continue the spirit of service watch for weekly Skyhall/South Campus service trips beginning September 18th.

Welcome to the Skyhalls! The Resident Advisor (RA) staff as well as your Residence Director (RD) and Assistant Residence Director (ARD) are very excited for your arrival. In less than two weeks we will come together as a community and embark on the great adventure called college. We are lucky this year as we have all of our SUNY-ESF 1st years/transfers and our SU transfers living with us. Our hall community will provide for many great opportunities and experiences. Hall staff are looking forward to showing you the ropes of the Skyhalls, South Campus, Syracuse University and SUNY-ESF. We will be utilizing this blog throughout the year for announcements and "shout outs". If you attend events and check back frequently and you may eventually find pictures of you! As we prepare for your arrival we would like to introduce ourselves and provide a few words of wisdom. See below for our staff bios and pictures.
