Campus Candid

The Canisius rowing team concluded the home portion of its spring schedule with a regatta on Sunday morning at Tonawanda Creek (the race was originally scheduled for the West Side Rowing Club, however ice in the channel forced a change of venue).

During a break in the action, Canisius dedicated a shell in honor of Daniel P. Starr ’58, HON ’18, PhD, a professor emeritus of history and the longtime director of Canisius College athletics.

Students say De la Pedraja promotes critical thinking and analytical skills and a passion for international issues.

Town Hall Meeting

All Canisius faculty and staff members are invited to attend the next Town Hall Meeting with President Hurley and the vice presidents tomorrow, Tuesday, April 30 in the Grupp Fireside Lounge from 3:30 – 4:30 p.m.

This Town Hall will be a series of roundtable discussions with President Hurley and the vice presidents. A similar format was used in the past and people responded very positively. This will give vice presidents a chance to talk about some of the key priorities in each respective area and discuss, as a smaller group, any thoughts or questions. We will do these in 15-minute sets to give participants an opportunity to talk with several groups. As we found last time, this led to a number of informative and engaging conversations and we look forward to doing this again.

Refreshments will be served.
