Pokémon Go, the augmented reality mobile game is taking over campus. Montante Cultural Center is a “gym” where virtual teams come to battle for control over the building.

The Wehle Technology building, the statue outside of Lyons Hall, the Beta Gamma Sigma Scholarship Key, the Our Lady of Canisius statue and Peter Canisius himself, are all “PokéStops” where players can walk by to grab items to help them on their quests.
