Seymour Students Participate in 17th Annual “Shadow Day” at SU

By Staff


SU tripSeymour Dual Language Academy fifth graders participated in the school’s 17th Annual Shadow Day, recently, and spent the entire day at Syracuse University.

While on the trip, the students attended a welcome reception at SU Chancellor Kent Syverud’s home; a ‘Fun with Engineering’ project at the College of Engineering; lunch in the Schine student center; and a campus tour that wrapped up at the Carmelo Anthony Basketball Center.

Seymour Special Education teacher John Campagna traveled with Seymour students on the trip, as well as on the 17 other visits, throughout the years.

“It is a great opportunity for students to get a brief look, and feel of college life,” Campagna stated. “The students are paired up with college students who have the same interests that they do.”

The students said they enjoyed the trip as well.

“Today was awesome,” fifth grader Faith Raymond stated. “The big buildings were amazing.”

In addition, “My favorite part was dancing with the girl’s lacrosse team,” fifth grader Imari Williams stated, after taking part in an impromptu dance off with college students. “I did push ups with them. I got to see lots of old football trophies, too. It was fun here—I’d like to college here one day!”
