The campus community is invited to watch The Dome for special “Trivia Wednesdays,” which will be published throughout the school year in every Wednesday edition. The first person to respond to with the correct answer will win Canisius “swag.”

Additionally, once a month on Wednesdays, there will be a special giveaway in which the winner will receive some of the newly-designed Canisius sesquicentennial gear.

Winners will be announced the following Wednesday of each week along with the correct trivia answer.

This week’s giveaway question is:

Before it became the Montante Cultural Center, the building which sits at the corner of Main Street and Eastwood place was which of the following:

a. The Villa

b. St. Michael’s Church

c. Sears Roebuck

d. St. Vincent de Paul Church

Congratulations to Jonathan Lawrence, PhD, associate professor of religious studies and theology, who was last week’s winner of Trivia Wednesday. Lawrence will receive his Canisius swag once the college returns to normal operations. In the meantime, he shared a photo of himself working remotely from the “Hurva Synagogue in the Old City of Jerusalem” (Thanks for being such a good sport, Jonathan!)

Last week’s Trivia Wednesday question was:

(a) Lisa Wilson ’91

(b) Lenora Foote-Beavers ’92
