Music connoisseur Elizabeth Kahn recounts her journey from Syracuse to her favorite place in the world: The Coachella Music and Arts Festival in Indio, Calif.
Saturday, April 20: Jour Deux
10 a.m: I can’t manage to sleep in any later. Damn it’s hot, but I’d rather be in dangerously high temperatures than back in Syracuse.
Things accomplished: My first shower in the campsite showers was way cleaner than expected. Although there was a VIP Shower option for $10, my camping neighbor Ana and I decided that it was worth it to just wait it out for the free showers since other girls leaving the area said it wasn’t so bad. Felt very refreshed and ready for the second day of the festivities.

Professional artist and Syracuse sports fan Michael Borkowski has applied his own original look to the school's popular mascot.
Michael Borkowski fell in love with Syracuse sports from the stands in the newly constructed Carrier Dome. The Syracuse native watched firsthand as Dick MacPherson rebuilt the football program and Jim Boeheim coached the basketball team to national prominence in the early '80s.

Savage, currently the chair of the art department at Davidson College, received his master of fine arts degree from SU in 1991 and while he hasn’t walked through the school’s quad since graduation, his presence still lingers.
Resting between Hendricks Chapel and the Physics Building is Savage’s “Wheel” — a 7,000-pound wheel-like sculpture 8 feet in diameter and made of concrete, steel and glass. Savage designed it in his second of four years spent at the school.
