his year’s Student Survival Guide cover art was created by 20-year-old Giacomo Calderoni, a cousin of Syracuse New Times designer Greg Minix.

A lifelong resident of Rome, Italy, Giacomo was interested in street art and graffiti — both in abundance in his neighborhood. He frequently painted the facades of local businesses, city street walls and abandoned roads throughout Rome. Heavily influenced by comic art (as you can see from our cover), he created three comics: his first, a 15-page short story, in 2014; the second, “Stornellos,” in 2015; and a third called “Shelter” in 2016, which won an honorable mention at the first Biennale dei Licei Artistici. He currently works at the Ultrablu cultural center in Rome, Italy. Ultrablu helps support artists with various developmental or neurological disorders, hosting art shows, public panels, conferences and publishing works. Giacomo’s newest comic will be released by them this fall.

HEAD FOR THE HILLS N

eed some time outside the classroom? Want to fill your lungs with fresh air and soak in that Vitamin D? Here are some great outdoor locations — all within a two-hour drive of Syracuse — for when you need to get away.

BALTIMORE WOODS NATURE CENTER 4007 Bishop Hill Rd., Marcellus (315) 673-1350 Over 180 acres of woodlands, fields and streams ripe for exploring! A big plus (especially for those sweating their increasing student loan debt): it’s free to visit and has free parking.

BEAVER LAKE NATURE CENTER 8477 E. Mud Lake Rd., Baldwinsville (315) 638-2519 Sit and relax next to the 200 acre glacial lake, or stop by for one of over 400 annual educational programs.

1 Heart Island, Alexandria Bay (315) 482-9724 A heartbreaking, made-for-Hollywood love story unfolded in the North Country in the early 1900s. Here’s your chance to learn about the Boldt family, and walk along the grand ballroom of a real castle.

CLARK RESERVATION STATE PARK 6105 E. Seneca Turnpike, Jamesville (315) 492-1590 Just a short drive southeast of Syracuse is this tucked-away state park. Go fishing, walk the trails or rent a pavilion for a group event!


CHIMNEY BLUFFS 7700 Garner Rd., Wolcott (315) 947-5205 These dramatic, jagged bluffs along Lake Ontario are a New York wonder. See them from a distance, or go up close when you walk along the trail.

COOPERSTOWN Take the thruway east to Exit 30, or take the long way along Rt. 20 Baseball buffs go batty for Cooperstown, commonly thought of as the Mecca of America’s favorite pastime. Not a sports fan? There’s tons of quaint, local shops along the downtown strip, scenic hiking trails and the Fly Creek Cider Mill.

You think you’ve had the best... The Stoop Bakery is truly world class

HOWE CAVERNS 255 Discovery Dr., Howes Cave (518) 296-8900 Who says nature can only be enjoyed above ground? Tap into your inner spelunker and delve into limestone corridors, exploring mysterious grottos and an underground lake in a guided tour.

ITHACA Head south on I-81 or Rt. 34 Central New York youngsters should have no problem blending in to this Finger Lakes college town. Stroll along The Commons, then head to Stewart Park to hang out by Cayuga Lake. If you’re looking for the iconic gorges, don’t be afraid to ask around!

LETCHWORTH STATE PARK 1 Letchworth State Park, Castile (585) 493-3600 Called “the Grand Canyon of the East,” Letchworth park features waterfalls over 600 feet high! It can also be enjoyed in the winter, with snow tubing, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing.

OLD FORGE, INLET, EAGLE BAY, BLUE MOUNTAIN Take I-90 east, then head north on Rt. 28 If you’re not looking to wander the over 2,000 miles of trails, head to the tiny towns that dot the region for local shopping and cozy eateries. Newbies be warned: gas stations — and cellphone service — are few and far between once you hit the treeline.

ROCHESTER Head west on I-90 until Exit 45 Like Syracuse, but bigger. Grab a garbage plate before visiting the National Museum of Play or taking a stroll along the water at Turning Point Park.

STUDENT SURVIVAL GUIDE 2018

10A STUDENT’S TIPS TO STRETCH DOLLAR

By Mae Harrington

S

aving money during college can be tough. Most teens have had their parents budget for them, but once you’re out on your own, your money and your time are your responsibility.

Here are some tips to save money during school from a college senior— while also making sure you’re living life to the fullest.

1. Laundry

Worried about paying for laundry? Don’t be! I survived my entire sophomore year piggybacking on other people’s laundry loads. This way you get the essentials washed without having to pay. Warning: Only do this with people you know and with their permission.

2. Healthy Eating

Find the local farmer’s market. There almost always is one and usually the prices are less expensive than the grocery store. A farmer’s market is a great place to find cheap, fresh fruit and vegetables, which can help ward off the feared “Freshman 15.” This is also an inexpensive way to spend time with friends.

3. Coffee

Are you a coffee drinker? Buy a coffee maker. If the temptation of a caffeine

boost from Starbucks is too great to resist, a coffee maker is a great way to resist the urge to dole out the cash for a fancy frap. If you don’t want to sacrifice taste or quality, find your favorite coffee shop and buy their ground beans so that you can brew your favorite cup of joe from home.

4. Entertainment

Get to know your city or town if you’re new to the area. Local museums, parks, theaters and other attractions usually have student discounts, so use them while you have them! Also, keep an open ear. People are always talking about the cool places they’ve been, so if you like what you hear, ask them about it! You may find another friend with similar interests.

5. New Experiences

Do one new thing every semester. Trying new things reminds you that while schoolwork can be overwhelming and stressful, it’s important to have a little fun once in a while. Colleges typically offer programs at a dis-


count. I went rock climbing for the first time through my school for just $5!

6. Dating

Don’t jump into a relationship with the first cute person you meet. College is a new environment and there is a lot of opportunity for personal growth. See who you are in this new place! Take time to figure out who you are away from home. There will be plenty of time to have a significant other in college. Make sure you give yourself the space to enjoy the changes as they come!

7. Be Attentive

Make sure your professors know who you are. Ask questions during class and make sure to introduce yourself to ensure that when they go to grade your work, they take who you are into account. This will also help in the long run; if you have a good rapport with a professor, you can ask them for internship advice, career guidance, and letters of recommendation should you need them down the line.

8. Fashion

Need clothes on the cheap? Go on the hunt for thrift stores, a game of “Who Can Find the Best Stuff.” This can be a fun challenge to do with your friends. You just might come home with some

cute, inexpensive clothes for your efforts. Keep your eyes open for them; sometimes even local churches have thrift stores!

9. Combat the Blues

If you’re feeling lonely, return to old habits. If you are feeling homesick and miss your friends and family, try watching your favorite movie or television show, or even read a favorite book. Using these familiar comforts will remind you that home isn’t as far away as you think.

10. Bathrooms

Worried about using a communal bathroom? You’re going to have to get used to it, I’m afraid. It can be weird at first. It’s a new experience for most people, so keep that in mind. College is a transition and there may be some rough patches. Communal bathrooms are one of them. Doing your nightly bathroom routine may be a bit uncomfortable with the girl from down the hall you’ve never met popping a pimple right next to you, but you will get used to it. Practice your small talk; you can find friends even in the oddest places. Mae Harrington was a Syracuse New Times intern and is a senior writing major at Emerson College.

engaging atmosphere. The customers can talk with one another when they are having their drinks or waiting to order. “It’s a safe, calming space,” Torous said. The shop recently started a pay-it-forward program where people can prepay for drinks for others. And don’t forget to try their homemade Belgian waffles!

FREEDOM OF ESPRESSO

ON FIRM GROUNDS

Local coffee shops percolate throughout Central New York By Samantha Leader

S

yracuse has many benefits for people who live and go to school here or are traveling through on business. Yet one plus to being a Central New Yorker is the abundance of coffee shops. Many people — especially busy college students — need their daily caffeine fuel of coffee (or a good steaming mug photo to round-out their Instagram profile), and they need to know the best places to stop while looking. Here are a few notable cafes in and around Syracuse.

THE COFFEE CONNECTION

3 LEAF TEA

Location: 148 Water St., Oswego Hours: Mondays and Wednesdays, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Thursdays and Fridays, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Sundays, noon to 5 p.m. The Coffee Connection is known for great drinks, locally made baked goods and a relaxing atmosphere. There are two levels, which include a comfortable couch downstairs and games upstairs. This gives off a homey vibe perfect for working, studying or bonding with friends. “It is nice at the café because you can sit outside and see a view of the lake while relaxing or doing your work,” said owner and barista Paul Fauler. The knowledgeable employees will clue you in about the teas, hot coffees, iced coffees and baked goods as soon as you walk in the door. One of the favorites is the frozen iced coffee, which features skim milk, chocolate, coffee cubes and iced coffee. “Our café parts from others mainly because we are very open to making drinks how people like them,” Fauler said. “If there is something someone wants that isn’t on the menu, we will try and make it for them.”

Location: 25 E. Genesee St., Auburn Hours: Tuesdays through Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. If you’re into something different from the usual coffee fare, 3 Leaf Tea also features naturally flavored matcha and hot chocolate blends. Matcha is a finely ground powder of green tea leaves, used to make tea and other drinks. The East Asian trend is a staple in the menu, from matcha smoothies to matcha lattes. “A big seller recently has been a ‘Blissful Latte’ which is a matcha latte infused with CBD oil,” said Luciana Torous, owner of 3 Leaf Tea. They import their matcha directly from two different farms in Japan. “We get regular shipments, so the product is always fresh,” Torous said. “And we use natural flavoring instead of syrups that blends directly into the ground tea, meaning no sugar or artificial products. “Matcha helps people feel alert but calm without a crash or jitters that coffee can make you feel. This is good for people who may struggle from anxiety or OCD,” she said. Teched-up college students may be shocked to learn this café doesn’t have WiFi, but that helps create a more

STUDENT SURVIVAL GUIDE 2018

Location: 115 Solar St., Syracuse Hours: Mondays through Fridays, 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Saturdays, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Sundays, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. The peaceful shop is just far enough from the Syracuse University Hill for a quick getaway. The café gives off a warm and relaxing feeling, and there are multiple areas to pick from for seating, including an outdoor space for those rare warm days. You can find high school friends catching up, retired friends playing chess or students doing homework. “We have WiFi, so we always see students coming in to study,” noted manager Gabrianna Dacko. “The café has been open for over 20 years, making us really proud of our Syracuse roots and the community we have created.” Their menu boasts locally roasted beans, Dacko said. And if pure coffee is not what you are looking for, the café sells lattes, cappuccinos, mochas and more. “Our most popular drink is the Caramel Tortoise, which is half hot chocolate and half coffee with caramel and hazelnut syrup,” Dacko said. “Here at Freedom of Espresso, our baristas work hard to please their customers and have a feel for what every regular likes.”

SALT CITY COFFEE Location: 509 W. Onondaga St., Syracuse Hours: Mondays through Fridays, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Saturdays, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Let’s face it: When you strike out on your own for the first time, money will inevitably become a problem. For college students trying to juggle term papers, dreaded group projects and a social life, sometimes that caffeine kick is desperately needed. Onondaga Street’s Salt City Coffee helps ease that small financial burden with their pay-it-forward program. Like at 3 Leaf Tea, customers are able to prepay for drinks or food to help other people who may not be able to afford it. Owner Aaron Metthe strongly believes in community service, as he also works closely with the Rescue Mission. Metthe intentionally opened the café on the West Side to be closer to a diverse group of neighborhoods, hoping to create a gathering space and bring together people from all different backgrounds. Salt City Coffee took over an old 1860s mansion in April 2017, so the interior feels like walking into a living room, complete with vintage armchairs. Frequent café-goer Kristi Golden said it helps make it easy to concentrate. “I went to college at Le Moyne and would stop into Salt City Coffee often to either study or just grab a drink,” Golden said. On top of the run-of-the-mill café fare (drip and pour over coffees, espressos, teas) Salt City also has a full breakfast and lunch menu.

CAFFEINE CRISIS

t’s Sunday afternoon, and you’re sitting in the campus library studying for your first big test of the fall semester. But you’ve been at it for hours, and you’re starting to have trouble focusing. What you need is a quick pick-me-up, and fulfilling a caffeine craving can be the easiest and quickest way to jumpstart your system (besides, ya know, exercise and maybe a daily vitamin).

MELLO VELO CAFÉ

PEWTER SPOON CAFÉ

790 Canal St., Syracuse | (315) 307-3104 Mello Velo started as a bicycle shop before opening a café in the same location, and you can certainly tell (in a good way). Featuring an amazing outdoor sitting space with potted plants, string lighting and bicycle motifs.

87 Albany St., Cazenovia | (315) 655-5554 This quaint, cozy spot in the Village of Cazenovia also has decent sized breakfast and lunch menus, making it a contender for an all-day study session spot.

RECESS COFFEE HOUSE 110 Harvard Pl., Syracuse | (315) 410-0090 Colorful and casual, this place is tailored to college students and the working young adult with copious outlets throughout the city.

ROJI TEA LOUNGE

SIMPLE ROAST COFFEE 360 Grant Ave., Auburn | (315) 975-0044 Dunkin’ Donuts can take several seats for this local drive-thru. Don’t let the exterior shack look fool you, Simple Roast is a crowd favorite and an Auburn staple.

RIVERBEND COFFEE

108 E. Washington St., Syracuse | (315) 428-0844 For when you need that caffeine buzz but aren’t a fan of coffee, this Asian-inspired establishment in downtown may be the place to go. Also serves bubble tea.

83 Genesee St., Auburn | (315) 255-1570 Riverbend is part coffee shop, part local gift store with shelves of boxed coffee, K-cups, wines and iconic mugs. Grab a drink and a sweet treat from the front display case, then sit outside and enjoy the sunshine.

THE KIND COFFEE COMPANY

TASTE THE WORLD

715 W. Fayette St., Syracuse | (315) 425-0035 For an edgier, more eclectic vibe and a good, classic cup of coffee, head to The Kind Coffee Company – you’ll know it by the spray-painted sign outside.

CAFÉ KUBAL 401 S. Salina St., Syracuse | (315) 440-6441 One of the more entrepreneurial cafes in Syracuse, Café Kubal has six different locations, including one on the Syracuse University campus a block up from the Marshall Street strip.

WORKMAJOR ANDARCANA PLAYS AT

Offbeat shows are produced at the Le Moyne College theater club By Kira Maddox

F

or many young adults, going off to college means finding yourself: discovering what you’re good at, what you like and what you want to do with the rest of your life — career or otherwise. While some of this personal development happens in the classroom, the change in character that happens through social interactions can’t be ignored. Participating in student-led clubs can be particularly helpful to developing responsibility, teamwork and communication skills. Le Moyne College’s theater group Major Arcana takes that idea to heart. “We don’t really care if the shows are amazing or not, we care about the learning process,” said Andrew Hughes, a Le Moyne senior and student representative for the club. Major Arcana was founded in 1984 by students who wanted to produce their own theatrical season. It is one of three theater clubs on campus, running alongside the Boot and Buskin Theatre Club and the No Scripts Attached improvisational group. As the more alternative playhouse, students aren’t forced to fit any certain mold when it comes to participation. Whereas an audition for a standard theater gig would include going into a beige room

SYRACUSE NEW TIMES |

and reading a specific monologue in a set tone and voice as a hundred other auditioners are behind you, Major Arcana encourages exploration. “You’re an individual — an artist — and you develop yourself based on how you want to develop, not what we tell you to do,” Hughes said. Everything from lighting design to directing is done by students, with occasional guidance from faculty moderator Lindsey Vorhees, a Le Moyne professor of practice costume design and resident costume designer. Because of this, there’s more room for responsibility and for students to try things they normally wouldn’t have taken on. Hughes said he started sweeping floors as an assistant stage manager but eventually wound up directing shows. Even that was a surprise for him; when he first started with Major Arcana, he assumed he’d only be an actor. “You literally do everything,” he said. “Just because you’re an actor doesn’t mean you can’t do set design. Just be-

STUDENT SURVIVAL GUIDE 2018

cause you’re a designer doesn’t mean you won’t ever do acting.” This gives students a more nuanced understanding of what it takes to put on a stage show, as they learn what role every gear and cog plays. Students also select which shows make it to the stage, and those choices run toward the edgy and poignant. Animal Farm, from the allegorical novel by George Orwell; By the Bogs of Cats, which is based on the Greek tragedy Medea and explores abandonment, betrayal and murder; and the upcoming production Stupid Fucking Bird, a comical, contemporary version of Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull are just a few examples of what Major Arcana brings to the stage. Since a student club does not have to worry about ticket sales, like in the professional world, Major Arcana can take risks with their shows. When Hughes directed By the Bog of Cats in Spring 2017, he confided to a friend that perhaps the show wouldn’t resonate with audience members. “She said, ‘That’s OK. You put on a show that you wanted to do, and you pushed the bounds of what people thought Major Arcana could accomplish (technically speaking),’” he recalled. That show showcased the ingenuity of the students, who transformed their classroom-like black box theater into something that resembled grim whimsy. There was a set design for an abstract house, a swing suspended from the ceiling and other different level-work on stage that made the show more engaging. The support he received is not uncommon at the club, Hughes said. The students, united by their common goal and love of theater, push each other to try new things. There is no room for ego. “It simulates a more professional environment because we are all on the same

level,” he said. “No one has a stronger foothold in Major Arcana than someone else. Everyone who’s a part of it is a part of it, and we all kind of work together to create what we love to do.” And that’s regardless of a student’s major. Hughes, who is double majoring in theater and computer science, said the club has about 70 students. While the bulk of them are theater majors, about 20 come from other academic schools, Hughes said. It’s not uncommon to see business or science majors participate because they either like a particular show, or because they did theater previously in another school. That’s how Hughes, who entered college for computer science, got started with Major Arcana. “I really liked theater in high school, but I didn’t think it was going to be feasible,” Hughes said. “But once I started getting involved with the community at Le Moyne I thought to myself, ‘This is very possible.’” For the coming year, Hughes said they’re putting more focus on student-written plays. The 10-minute shows will be showcased in a New Works Festival, in the hopes of helping students strengthening yet another theater muscle. They’ll also be branching out to the student community at large with weekly on-campus workshops every Friday. Hughes said these mini-classes will cover everything from introductory lighting design to how to put together an audition book. When they’re not learning, they’ll be inviting club members and others to play kickball or Frisbee. For the newly green college student, whether attending Le Moyne or another Central New York college, Hughes has this advice: “Have fun and do what you love to do. These four years are for you to explore and do new things, so just have fun.”

ollege is a time to march to the beat of your own drum. But what’s the harm in finding others with a similar rhythm? Having a dedicated social circle not only helps with mental health, it can also give you a means to grow as a person as you learn and bounce ideas off each other.

Student clubs are an easy future-friend hotspot for the new college student, but the more lighthearted clubs can also provide a much–needed break from the stress of the classroom. Whether you’re looking to have fun on campus, head off the hill to blow off steam or give back to the community, these clubs may be able to help. Who knows: Maybe you’ll be inspired to start one of your own!

OSU Paintball Club, called Rush, was founded in 2002 and aims to teach students about the benefits of paintball, like increased flexibility and stamina. The team is part of the National Collegiate Paintball Association and participates in different tournaments with other colleges.

CITRUS RACING

CAYUGA COMMUNITY COLLEGE

SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY Citrus Racing, a club based on the Formula Society of Automotive Engineers, mixes hands-on learning with a surprising need for speed. This national college student-exclusive car race has been burning rubber since 1981 and allows students to flex their creative and mechanic muscles by making racecars from the ground up. The cars are then judged across the country at various Formula SAE shows and races.

PRANK CLUB

CAZENOVIA COLLEGE Who doesn’t love a good prank? From popping out of closets to spontaneous Nerf gun fights, this club always aims to keep students in high spirits — and on their toes. Aptly listed as an “arts and entertainment” group, the club hopes to promote unity among campus peers. When they aren’t giving you heart palpitations, they’re setting up open stress-relieving workshops on campus with oversized board games, like Connect Four and Jenga, and video games.

VETERANS CLUB

Taking a more patriotic approach, students in CCC’s Veterans Club aim to support the military. The college reported a 400 percent increase in veteran students from 2009 to 2012 after the peak of the invasion of Iraq in 2003, according to the Auburn newspaper The Citizen, so places like the Veterans Club give them needed support as they readjust to civilian life. The club, which is a branch of the Student Veterans of America nonprofit, sponsors speakers on Veterans Day, hosts flag ceremonies and participates in national conferences.

WHOLE EARTH CLUB ONONDAGA COMMUNITY COLLEGE

Trying to shrink your carbon footprint? Sustainability and eco-friendly clubs like OCC’s Whole Earth Club try to make that easier for the busy college student. Want to bring water to class? Ditch a plastic one-use bottle from the vending machine for a reusable one, sold by the Whole Earth Club throughout the year. Need to go shopping because you’re down to your last pack of ramen noodles? Leave your car at home (and save money on parking fees) and ride the bus or take up biking and walking when you can. The Whole Earth Club aims to bring these alternatives to the forefront on campus.
