Save the Date: Orange Central Homecoming 2016 and Whitman Events

Orange Central Homecoming 2016 is set for September 15-18 with a gridiron matchup between the Orange and the Bulls of South Florida. Whitman is pleased to announce two events as part of this year’s Orange Central festivities. On Thursday evening, September 15, we will hold the annual Jonathan J. Holtz Awards Ceremony to honor several distinguished alumni and friends of Whitman who consistently and generously support our mission with time, talent and treasure. We are excited for the return of the Orange Tank business pitch competition to be held Friday afternoon, September 16. Like last year, we’ll welcome entrants in two categories—alumni and student start-ups—with accomplished alumni judging each competition. More details about Whitman events will be shared in the coming months. For general homecoming details, visit http://orangecentral.syr.edu.
