Campus Candid

Students studying for exams received a friendly – and furry – welcome upon visiting the library Wednesday.

“Wiz,” a five-year old Terrier mix, spent the afternoon socializing with students and giving them some much-needed stress relief from their studies.

“Wiz” was recently adopted by Sandy Miller, director of corporate and foundation relations for the Division of Institutional Advancement.

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 December 1940 – The Canisius College men’s basketball team had the honor of playing the first collegiate basketball game in the newly-opened Buffalo Memorial Auditorium. The $2.7 million arena seated upwards of 15,000.

Though the Griffs fell to the powerhouse University of Oregon (50-42), ‘The Aud’ became the team’s home for 56 years and more than 600 contests until it shuttered in 1996.
