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 September 2020 when Canisius turns 150 years old. 

Today, we flash back to May 1, 2011 when the women’s lacrosse team won its first MAAC Championship against top-seeded Fairfield. The Golden Griffins defeated the Stags, 13-8, and extended its best season in school history (14-5) by qualifying for the NCAA Tournament play-in round.

Western New York Prosperity Fellowship Announces 2020-21 Recipients

The Western New York Prosperity Fellowship (WNYPF) is proud to announce the fellowship recipients for the 2020-2021 year (see names above).

Generously supported by the Prentice Family Foundation, Western New York Prosperity Fellowships assist undergraduate and graduate students with an entrepreneurial drive who want to make a difference in Western New York. The fellowship program identifies the most promising talent in Western New York and immerses students in a robust educational and professional development program, with the goal of developing economic leaders within this community.

The Fellowship Program combines financial assistance, in the form of scholarships, with paid, credit-bearing internships to assist Fellows in acquiring both academic and practical experiences in their intended professions. Fellows intern in their chosen fields of interest, where they work alongside, and are mentored by, leaders in upper-level management. Lastly, the Fellowship provides a yearlong series of events designed to enrich skill and network development.

Canisius College is one of two participants in the program. The Prentice Family Foundation’s gift is the largest annual gift to the college.
