s-m-roosevelt-painting-0831201677Canisius’ hallways, offices, gathering and public spaces are filled with special gifts from special benefactors. The artwork of Canisius College brightens our days. On occasion, a single hidden treasure leaves its regular home for temporary exhibit.

Portrait of Nicholas and Alice Roosevelt Longworth, Roosevelt Estate Garden, Skaneateles, NY is shown through Wednesday, September 7, at the ALB Library in the Peter and Mary Lou Vogt Art Gallery (first floor). The gallery is open during regular library hours:

Samuel M. Roosevelt, an internationally known 19th – early 20th century portrait artist and cousin to President Theodore Roosevelt, painted this canvas of the president’s daughter and son-in-law in the mid-1920s.

Thomas C. Mack ’61 Esq. donated the painting to the college in 1995.

New Classroom Computers

Welcome back from the Media Center! We hope everyone has had a great start to the fall ’16 semester!

New ITC Computers
User Services installed new, smaller footprint PCs in 40 classrooms on campus.


The power button is located on the front of the computer on the right-hand side. Please note that these computers do not have an optical drive for DVD playback. If you need to play a video DVD you can use the room’s DVD or Blu-ray player.

If you need to access files off a DVD in class, you can arrange for use of a portable optical drive by calling the ITS Help Desk at Ext. 8340. Staff can also provide assistance outside of class time with moving files off a disc to D2L, Google Drive, etc. so faculty can access the files without needing to use a portable optical drive.

Guide to Media Services Updated
Trying to find out which department provides which media-related service? A great place to start looking for these answers is the Guide to Media Services. This section of the Media Center’s portal community provides an overview of services provided by a variety of departments on campus.
