Faculty and students enjoyed a little down-time from grading, writing and studying on Friday, October 26 at “Tea @ 2.”
Sponsored by the Classics Department, these get-togethers are held each Friday during the school semester from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. in the Campus Ministry meeting room. It is a time of fellowship and informal conversation with people of similar interests to exchange ideas, books or other materials, or sometimes watch a relevant movie. The special feature on Friday, October 26 was a screening of Monty Python’s “Life of Brian” (1979).
If you have an interest in the Classical era, its culture or history, come join us.

Eve School (School 61) shows the largest gains among elementary schools in the district in English Language Arts — jumping from 14.8 to 34.7 in 2018. Read the story here.
Starting today, a new feature added to “The Dome” enables readers to save upcoming, on-campus events of interest to their digital calendars.
Wherever relevant, editors of “The Dome” will include a link at the end of each post that enables readers to “add this event” to their calendars.
When you click the link, a series of options for various digital calendars will appear. Most options either email you a calendar invite or download a file that your email/calendar software can open as the event.
To learn more, watch the video tutorial (above) created by COLI.
Please note that this new calendar option is only available for those events that are held on campus and scheduled in 25Live.

Week two of the Canisius Fund’s annual Coffee Walk concluded on Friday, October 26. Members of the Canisius Fund team handed out complimentary coffee, donuts and apple cider in Bagen Hall, the George Martin House, Old Main and the Koessler Athletic Center.
While this year’s Coffee Walk is officially over, there’s still plenty of time to participate in the 2018-19 Faculty & Staff Giving Campaign. You can make your gift by calling the Canisius Fund Office at Ext. 2712 or online at www.canisius.edu/faculty-staff. We will continue to add names to the Faculty & Staff Donor Recognition Wall, and as a small way to “espresso” our gratitude we will be sending reusable coffee sleeves to all faculty and staff supporters.
Thank you, all, for everything you do for Canisius each and every day!
