Throwback Thursday

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 July 31, 1951, the Feast of St. Ignatius and the day on which Canisius dedicated Christ the King Chapel. The spiritual centerpiece of campus was designed by the prominent Buffalo architect Duane Lyman – draftsman of such noted city landmarks as the Saturn Club and 800 West Ferry. The archetypal pattern and the overmastering symbol of the chapel is a cross formed by the intersection of the nave and the transept. The stone cross, positioned above the entrance to the chapel, is an ancient Celtic cross, the Cross of Iona, which dates to the earliest days of Christianity in Ireland and Britain. The chapel also features five rose windows, each having its own historic significance.

Canisius College Help Desk: Ready to Assist!

The Canisius College Help Desk, staffed by ITS User Services, stands ready to assist you with information technology problems, concerns and possibilities in your work at the college. You can quickly contact the Help Desk by Email at or visit

Questions addressed to the ITS Help Desk regarding D2L, Google Drive, Qualtrics and other applications are efficiently routed to COLI staff. This is a better option than Emailing individual COLI or ITS staff members, since it allows many COLI and ITS employees to see and assist with your questions, resulting in better response times. Where concerns overlap between COLI and ITS divisions, we can easily work together to assist you.

Before you contact the ITS Help Desk, save time by visiting the COLI Wiki and browsing various self-paced training resources. We are continually updating these with new and better guides and tutorials.
