Trivia Tuesday

The campus community is invited to watch The Dome for special “Trivia Tuesdays,” which will be published in every Tuesday edition throughout the summer. The first person to respond to with the correct answer will win Canisius “swag.” Additionally, once a month on Tuesdays, 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 Tuesday of each week along with the correct trivia answer.

This week’s special giveaway question is: The Canisius community dedicated the Greatest Generation Memorial in November 2007 as a permanent tribute to alumni who served during the war years of 1941 – 1943. Where is the memorial located on campus?

(a) In the Quad, near Koessler Plaza

(b) In front of Lyons Hall, on Main Street

(c) In the plaza, between Bagen Hall and Old Main

c. Outside the ROTC Offices at the Health Science Building

Congratulations to Suli Calianno, Canisius Fund coordinator, who is the winner of last week’s Trivia Tuesday contest. Suli is a frequent player of Trivia Tuesday and often among the first to respond. We’ll have some Canisius swag waiting for her when the campus returns to normal operations. Thanks for playing!

Last week’s Trivia Tuesday question was: In what year was the Golden Griffin ‘born’?

a. 1942

b. 1950

c. 1938

d. 1933

The correct answer was: (c) 1933

Return to Campus

Dear Canisius Community,

I hope that you have been enjoying the beautiful summer weather and enjoying some time with family and friends.

As you know, our three-stage Return to Campus Plan for faculty and staff began on Monday, June 29.  The college’s Recovery Task Force developed the plan with the latest guidance from local, state and federal government officials and public health authorities. The health and safety of our students, faculty, staff and their families remains our top priority and continues to lead our decision-making regarding the reopening of the campus.

We have prepared a Return to Campus Guide which includes detailed information for transitioning back to work on campus.  The Guide outlines carefully thought-out health, safety and cleaning protocols, flexible work from home policies, changes to some offices and physical workspaces and much more.  Please read the guide carefully to ensure you have all the necessary information.

 Here are a few important items to note when returning to work on campus:

  • You will be required to access the building you work in using swipe access with your college ID card.
  • Each employee will receive two washable facemasks that can be picked up in the Office of Human Resources. 
  • All Canisius College employees must complete a Daily Health Screening for COVID 19 prior to reporting to work on campus.  Employees who answer “No” to any questions should stay home.
  • As announced last summer, parking for the Main Eastwood (Bagen) Lot will not have relaxed parking rules during the summer. Only “A” permits are permitted to park in the Main Eastwood Lot.  Please also remember that the Tower Lot is designated for Visitors Only throughout the year.  As a courtesy to our guests, please observe these restrictions. Flexible parking is permitted in other employee parking lots effective June 29 through August 14, 2020. 

We understand that the COVID-19 pandemic has increased the stress levels of employees across the country. We have made every effort to make certain that the campus and workspaces are safe for our employees to return to work.

As a community, we share the responsibility to work together to keep our friends, families and colleagues safe and healthy. We look forward to welcoming you back to campus!
