The Koessler Athletic Center underwent a cosmetic facelift as upgrades were put into place this summer. Signage and fresh coats of paint can be seen both inside and outside of the KAC.
A giant banner placed on the outside of the pool wall, facing the upper KAC parking lot, features the Canisius athletic logo.
The main entrance hallway from the upper lot also features new signage and branding to give fans and visitors the feeling they are walking into a Division I-level facility. The left-hand side of the hallway now features the Canisius athletics logos with “Home of the Griffs” proudly displayed.
On the opposite side, the wall was re-branded with images of former athletes inside the letters of “This Is Our House.” There are also crowd shots, including the beloved C-Block section, in the upper and lower borders.
Further down the hall, signage hangs showcasing former student-athletes who accomplished great things in their professional careers. The signs also feature the Canisius “You Can” brand and highlight Canisius’ Jesuit tradition.
Two large images of the Canisius Golden Griffin, which are lit up by external lights at night, face Main Street on the front of the building.
Other upgrades to be completed soon include a fully back-lit LED Canisius sign that will be on the front of the building facing Main Street and a major overhaul to the pool. A new filtration system, tiling and the installation of technology upgrades to accommodate a Division-I men’s and women’s swimming and diving program are being put into place during the semester.
