When prospective students and families arrive on the Syracuse University campus, the first person they often meet is Ed Rother.
A member of the Parking and Transportation Services team, Rother has staffed the University’s north entry gate on South Crouse Avenue for more than 29 years. In that role, he has been a friendly face to faculty, staff and students. With his proximity to Crouse-Hinds Hall, where the Office of Admissions is located, he has often been the first person from Syracuse University that thousands of students and families interact with when they visit the University for the first time.
Rother is retiring from the University on Dec. 1 after 30 years of service. He says the decision to retire from a job he loves did not happen overnight. “The University has treated me great all of these years, but now is the right time to do it,” he says.
