It’s Throwback Thursday!

Each Thursday, throughout the summer, the Office of College Communications will include historical facts about the college in The Dome, on Facebook and Twitter.  It’s all part of our yearlong sesquicentennial celebration, which culminates in September 2020 when Canisius turns 150 years old. 

Today, we flash back to June 2000 when the college’s largest-ever capital campaign, Imagine Canisius, concluded with a total of $38.8 million raised, surpassing the goal by $8.8 million. Highlights of the campaign included 13 gifts of $1 million or more to Canisius. The campaign also attracted 65 gifts of $100,000 or more, saw the creation of 95 new endowed scholarships and the enhancement of several existing scholarships.
