Every year, members of our graduating class decide to do something courageous. Before continuing their education or finding a job, they decide to put their Jesuit education to good use immediately by committing a year or more of full-time volunteer service to marginalized communities all over the world.
To these 14 young alumni we want to say, Canisius is proud of you!
