Canisius College and the National Hockey League’s Buffalo Sabres announced a unique partnership where the school’s Golden Griffin hockey program will compete and practice in the newly-constructed HARBORcenter, beginning with the 2014-15 season.

“This is an exciting day for Canisius College,” said President John J. Hurley. “We make yet another big investment in the city we have called home since 1870, as we join with Terry and Kim Pegula and the Buffalo Sabres to help revitalize Buffalo’s downtown, advance the Canalside District and take our championship-hockey program to a whole new level of excellence. It’s a tremendous opportunity for our student-athletes, alumni and fans to be part of this world-class facility.”

Canisius Students Rejoice on their Return from WYD

Ten Canisius College students returned home from Rio de Janerio, Brazil on Tuesday, where they celebrated World Youth Day alongside nearly two million other young people from 170 countries.

World Youth Day is organized by the Catholic Church and was led, in part, by its spiritual leader Pope Francis.

“Our experience was incredible,” says Elizabeth Furhman ’16.  “What other faith in the world could attract millions of people all for one reason and that reason is Christ.  It was awesome.”

In the weeks leading up to World Youth Day, Canisius students participated in MAGIS, a service immersion program organized by the Society of Jesus in conjunction with WYD.
