It’s Flashback Friday!

It’s Flashback Friday! Each Friday we will include historical facts about the college in The Dome, on Facebook and Twitter. Flashback Fridays are another part of our yearlong Sesquicentennial celebration, which culminates in 2020 when Canisius turns 150 years old.

Flashback to September 1991 – Mary Beth E. (Riley) Metcalf ’91 accepted the NCAA’s inaugural Woman of the Year Award in October 1991. The award recognizes the athletic and academic achievements of an outstanding young intercollegiate female athlete, as well as accomplishments in the areas of community service and leadership.
