Amazoo: the Rainforest Connection

The students of Zoo Biology welcome the Canisius Community to visit their mini-zoo, “Amazoo: the Rainforest Connection” featuring animals from the Amazonian rainforest. Over the past 3 weeks, the students have transformed rooms 101 and 102 in the Health Science Center to an interactive, exciting zoo exhibit experience. The mini-zoo will be open from Nov 11 – 21, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Please stop by. May the forest be with you.

Scheduling Exams with the Student Academic Support Services office

With the semester coming to an end, our office has already seen over 1,000 students needing to take exams. To be able to meet the needs of the ADA, as well as schedules for make-up exams, we ask for assistance in reminding our students that in order to take make-up exams in our office, they need to schedule the exact day and time with us with at least 24 hour business hours advance notice. Unfortunately, if students come in without an appointment, we will not always be able to assist them since we may not have the space or staff available.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this, please do not hesitate to contact us at X3748 or

Media Center Mondays

Classroom Capture
Classroom capture systems allow for the recording of lectures, guest speakers, and presentations. The system can record video and audio of the presenter along with non-encrypted content from the resident computer, a laptop or the document camera.

Three rooms over in Science Hall (SH 1004, SH 1013A, and SH 1013B) have built-in capture systems. In addition, a mobile capture cart is available for use in that facility and can be connected to the lecterns in select classrooms for the purposes of recording content.

Training on the use of classroom capture and scheduling use of the mobile capture cart can be arranged by contacting Bob Grabowski (Ext. 3278). More information, including instructions for use, can be found online at:

Classroom Tip of the Month
Ever wonder how to request swipe card access to a classroom? Who do you contact if you run out of whiteboard markers or chalk in your classroom? Curious about why the newly upgraded classroom you are teaching in doesn’t have a VCR?

The answers to these questions (and more!) can be found by visiting the the Frequently Asked Questions section of the Media Center community. Have a question you think should be added to the page? Submit it in the form located on the right-side of the FAQ page.
