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 October 1998 – Rev. Peter-Hans Kolvenbach, SJ, superior general of the Society of Jesus, delivered a rare address to the Canisius community during an October 26, 1998 visit. Father Kolvenbach was on a tour of Jesuit communities in the Northeast United States and Canada when he stopped at Canisius.
