Campus Candid

The Canisius College Pre-Medical Center partnered with the Erie Niagara Health Education Center to host a week-long Health Professions Summer Camp for middle school children.  This is an effort to encourage Buffalo kids to persist in science and math during high school and beyond.  Canisius faculty and several alumni in health professions helped introduce the kids to what it would be like to work as a physician assistant or in the fields of pharmacy, dentistry, neuroscience, animal behavior and more.

Canisius in the News

The Buffalo News editorial board gave kudos to The Movement to Restore Trust in its August 5 edition, crediting the group of local Catholic laity for its recently issued report of proposed reforms.

Canisius President John J. Hurley, who was instrumental in forming The Movement to Restore Trust, is referenced throughout the article talking about the importance of laity, religious and clergy working together to promote best practices in the management of the Catholic Church.

All Decked Out to Celebrate the Sesquicentennial

As a new academic year gets underway in a few weeks, so too will the college’s year-long celebration commemorating its Sesquicentennial. Already, the campus is showing signs – literally – of what the Canisius community can expect to see throughout the year.

Thanks to the talented work of the Marketing & Brand Engagement team, new Sesqui-themed banners and graphics now adorn campus buildings and areas up-and-down Main Street. Look for more to come on light posts across campus and inside Science Hall, in the coming days.
