Mail Room Services March 17-21

Due to reduced staffing in the mail room the week of March 17 – March 21, mail delivery and pick up to departments located on the main campus will be temporarily suspended. Members of the campus community with an office located in Bagen Hall, Old Main, Churchill Tower, Horan O’Donnell, Winter Student Center, Frisch Hall, Palisano Pavilion, Bosch Hall, Dugan Hall, Science Hall and Loyola Hall, must pick up in-bound departmental mail and drop off out-bound mail and inter-office envelopes at the mail room service window located on the first floor of Science Hall near the Jefferson Ave./Main St. entrance. Parcels deemed too heavy to carry will be delivered at the earliest opportunity.

Out-bound mail and inter-office envelopes may also be deposited in drop boxes located in the tunnel level of Bagen Hall (near the print shop) and the Winter Student Center (near the bookstore).

The mail room will continue to fill the faculty lounge mail boxes daily.

Mail delivery services will continue as usual for departments located in the Health Science Center, Koessler Athletics Center, Lyons Hall, Agassiz, Library and Demerly Hall.

The mail room service window is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The mail room telephone number is 888-2245.

Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

Canisius Welcomes Tapestry Charter School for “Believing in What You Cannot See.”

The Canisius College School of Education will welcome more than 100 fifth and sixth grade students from Tapestry Charter School on Tuesday, March 18, from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. in the Richard E. Winter ’42 Student Center (Regis Room North), located on Hughes Avenue.

Tapestry students will showcase their academic projects from “Believing in What You Cannot See,” a three-month learning expedition, during which students followed in the footsteps of famous historical scientists and transformational thinkers, asking questions and seeking answers to things that were way too big or too small to see with their own eyes. Tapestry students applied measures of analytic thinking and imagination, logic and intuition to answer such fundamental questions as: What are the suitable conditions to sustain life; how do we know the Earth revolves around the sun; what causes the moon to stay in orbit with the Earth; and how many stars are in the universe?

Canisius entered into a strategic educational partnership with Tapestry Charter School in 2008, to jointly meet the needs of teacher-candidates and improve student learning, overall.
