Help Save Projector Lamps!

Did you know that the lamps in classroom video projectors have a finite life span? Did you know that they cost between $99 and $400 (depending on the projector model) to replace?  And did you know that when “standby” or “A/V Mute” is selected, the projector lamp is still being used?

In order for the college to maximize the value of these video projector lamps across campus, the Media Center is asking members of the community who use these tools, to shut down the projectors at the end of each class.

If you need information on how to shut down a projector in a particular room or how to use the document camera, play a DVD or hook up your laptop to the projector, simply:

  • Log on to the portal
  • Click on “Campus Services” in the launchpad to open its drop-down menu
  • Click on “What is in My Classroom?”
  • (You can use the “Select Classroom” option to find valuable information on how to operate the technology in each classroom on campus.)

If you need a demonstration of a particular feature in a classroom, contact the Media Center at Ext. 2590 and a link will be posted on the portal page to a video showing how to use the feature of the particular room in which you’re interested.

Canisius’ Sexual Violence Prevention Team and USA co-host film viewing

The campus community is invited to attend the viewing of “Escalation” tonight, Wednesday, February 7 from 5:00 – 6:30 p.m. in the Regis Room of the Richard E. Winter ’42 Student Center.

The 40-minute film chronicles a college relationship from its sweet beginnings through its escalation to abuse.  Following the film, members of the Counseling Center will help facilitate a brief discussion on relationship abuse among college students.

Sponsored by the college’s Sexual Violence Prevention Team and the Undergraduate Student Association, the event coincides with the national #ThatsNotLove campaign, an initiative aimed at ending relationship violence by raising awareness of what abuse looks like.
