Milestones on Main Street

It’s been nearly a century since Canisius College made its home at 2001 Main Street. A lot has happened in those 100 years. Educational excellence, tradition and ambition shaped the institution into what it is today.

Canisius is commemorating this centennial with an entertaining look back at the milestones and memories that helped define the college.

Beginning today and continuing through January 6, 2013 (the actual date that Old Main opened for classes), we’ll pose a ‘Question of the Day’ to test your knowledge about Canisius and (hopefully) teach you something new about the college. Look for the question each morning in Under the Dome. Answers will be posted on the college’s Facebook page.

So, join the conversation, share your favorite Canisius memories and help us celebrate our first 100 years on Main Street.

Where was Canisius College located before its move to Main Street in 1912-1913?
