Canisius in the News

IMG_2297The kittens on campus have attracted the local news. WKBW-TV Channel 7 spoke with Miranda Workman, clinical instructor of Animal Behavior, Ecology and Conservation (ABEC) about the partnership the college has with the Erie County SPCA to help prepare the kittens for adoption. The students teach the kittens activities such as getting inside a carrier, running through a tunnel and playing fetch.

These activities “make them attractive adoption candidates and encourages positive relationships with humans that will help the kittens transition to their new families,” Workman said.

Honors Professor Gives “Last Lecture”

Professor Becky Krawiec, PhD, professor and chair of the Department of Religious Studies and Theology, has been voted by students in the All-College Honors Program to give her “Last Lecture” on Wednesday, April 19 at 7:00 p.m. in the Science Hall Commons.

The “Last Lecture” series at Canisius was inspired by Randy Pausch, a popular professor at Carnegie Mellon University, whose losing battle with a fatal disease prompted him to distill a lifetime of wisdom in a final talk to his students. It should be noted that Krawiec is neither ill nor planning to leave Canisius.

The lecture is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
