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 1968 when Canisius College purchased the building at the corner of Delavan and Jefferson avenues from the New York Telephone Company. The plan was to convert the building into a health center that would house the Biology and Psychology departments. That plan came to fruition in spring 1971.
