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 September 2020 when Canisius turns 150 years old. 

Today, we flash back to April 1985 when Buffalo’s $530 million Light Rail Rapid Transit System opened for service. Two of the transit system’s largest stations were located on the Canisius campus.

The 6.4-mile subway line, able to carry passengers from Memorial Auditorium to the University at Buffalo Main Street campus, included a stop at the Delavan College Station, at the south end of the Canisius campus and another at the Humboldt Hospital Station, at the north end of campus.
