Fourteen high school students from the Erie 1 BOCES Legal Academy graduated on Wednesday, June 8, 2016.  More than 50 family members and friends attended the ceremony held in the Marie Maday Theatre at Canisius College.


The BOCES high school students, who were enrolled in the New Vision Legal Academy senior honors class for the 2015-2016 academic year, received instruction at Canisius College while benefiting from the Jesuit college experience. Patricia Erickson, PhD, interim dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, and Robert Klump, Director of the Raichle Pre-Law Center, are the academic coordinators between Canisius and Erie 1 BOCES Legal Academy.

Four of the high school students will be freshmen at Canisius for the upcoming 2016-2017 academic year.

Student Records and Financial Services, Human Resources Relocate

The Office of Student Records and Financial Services, located on the first floor of Bagen Hall, is undergoing a remodeling during the summer months.  The office will be reconfigured and expanded into the area currently occupied by the Human Resources Office.  In preparation for the work, both offices are being temporarily relocated.

The Office of Student Records and Financial Services will operate out of Old Main 100 and the Human Resources Office will operate out of Horan O’Donnell 001.  The newly remodeled Student Records and Financial Services Office is scheduled to reopen by the start of the fall semester.  The Human Resources Office will remain in Horan O’Donnell until their new space becomes available later this fall.

Access around the first floor of Bagen Hall will be affected by the construction.  Please use caution when walking around or adjacent to the work area.  Your patience and understanding are greatly appreciated.
