The Canisius team competed against Ateneo de Manila University, Instituto Tecnologico de Mexico, Moscow University and the University of Lausanne, Switzerland. Ateneo de Manila University, our Jesuit partner in the Philippines, won the global competition.
The Canisius team was comprised of Alexandra Pfeifer ’19 (captain), Allison Jennings ’19, Jennifer Keefer ’19 and Mike Maiorana ’19. The team competed against 1,100 universities from approximately 90 countries to secure a spot at the Global Finals.
