Carrier Dome

Syracuse University

Syracuse University's Campus Framework is a 20-year road map of major construction projects affecting the university area. University officials said there are currently more than 200 active construction projects on campus.

Those projects include everything from adding bells to Crouse College’s bell tower, to the removal of PCBs and asbestos from a building adjacent to the Waverly parking lot, which should come down this fall making way for the National Veterans Resource Complex.

The 2015 World Indoor Lacrosse Championship is being billed as "lacrosse comes home" because it is being hosted by the Onondaga Nation and the sport was invented by indigenous nations in upstate New York. The tournament runs from Sept. 18-27.

Syracuse University announced Wednesday that it has instituted a self-imposed postseason ban for this year's men's basketball team, following an investigation by the NCAA Committee on Infractions. 

In a news release, the university said it self-reported potential violations to the NCAA in 2007. Many of the potential violations were academic in nature. The university said that most of the alleged conduct occurred "long ago and none occurred after 2012." The university says no current student athlete is involved in the investigation.

If you’ve been to a Syracuse University basketball game this year, you may have noticed a different tint to the toilet bowl water in the restrooms. Here's why:

The Carrier Dome is now collecting rain and snow that falls on about half of its six acre puffy white roof. That water filters down the building into 50,000 gallon underground tanks. It’s then treated and stored, ready for a game break bathroom rush.

A special work group at Syracuse University has laid out several options in case the Carrier Dome is ever incapacitated.

The group has come up with a back-up plan to deal with the 275 events that happen in SU’s iconic stadium.

So what would happen to Syracuse University's most high profile sports if the Carrier Dome became inoperable for a long period of time?
