Meet Political Science Majors and Faculty Tomorrow Night

Ever wonder what the classes next semester are really like? Catch a quick glimpse tomorrow April 7 in Grupp Fireside Lounge at 5:00 p.m. Every political professor teacher at Canisius will be in attendance to give a brief introduction, along with a minor taste of what is coming next semester.

This is a great opportunity to meet your professors and fellow majors, all while learning about the classes you have to take. Stuck between two classes for next semester? This event will help you decide between the two with input from professors and students.

Free pizza and drinks will be available along with free entertainment. All majors and grade levels are welcome and encouraged to bring friends. There will be enough food, information and laughs to go around! See you there!

Canisius Librarians Recognized for Service

Canisius librarians Jessie Blum, Matt Kochan, and Lisa Sullivan were once again commended by the Western New York Library Resources Council (WNYLRC) for their outstanding work providing reference service via the library’s virtual reference service. This is the fourth time this academic year that these librarians have received a monthly service recognition.

The virtual reference service, Ask Us 24/7, provides access to librarians via chat 24 hours a day, seven days a week across the United States and England. The service, provided by a consortium of libraries, ensures students, faculty, and staff have real-time access to the virtual assistance of reference librarian when they need it most. Librarians identify themselves to patrons, and provide recommendations for access to resources at the patron’s home institution, as well as general reference.

Current Canisius students, faculty and staff have access to this service here.
