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 November 1978 – Jack Kemp, representative of the 38th District of New York in the U.S. Congress from 1971-1989, lectured at Canisius on November 8, 1978 as part of the William H. Fitzpatrick Chair of Political Science Lecture Series.
