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 August 1967 when Canisius broke ground on the construction of Bosch Hall. The second of two residence halls (Frisch Hall, was completed in 1963), Bosch Hall included an adjoining dining hall and was constructed with funds from a $2.8 million loan awarded to Canisius from the Federal Housing and Urban Development Department.
Bosch Hall is named for Rev. Raymond G. Bosch, who worked as a missionary in South America before coming to Canisius in 1932. He taught modern languages for 35 years.
This morning, Thursday, August 13, the Upper Room Church on Florida Street is sponsoring a mobile COVID-19 testing unit for the community. The college’s Spillman Parking Lot, across the street from the church, will be the testing site. Anyone is welcome to receive testing, just bring an ID and an insurance card. Testing runs from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

With the introduction of the new Xerox copiers, there has been an increase in color use. This may be accidental, as many users likely need to set their default printer to the MyGrayscale print queue. Instructions on how to do this can be found here: https://wiki.canisius.edu/display/hd/Setting+MyGrayscalePrintJob+as+default+printer
When color output is needed, users can always choose the MyColor print queue in the pull down menu of the print dialog box.
As always, questions, comments or concerns can be addressed by contacting the ITS Help Desk via Email at firstname.lastname@example.org, by phone at 888-8340 or on the web at http://helpdesk.caniius.edu.

The Center for Online Learning & Innovation (COLI) invites all new, returning and current adjunct professors to an Adjunct Faculty Information Session to help prepare you to teach during the fall 2020 semester. Learn about employee resources, the library, the college mission, and technology for teaching and learning.
We are offering two sessions, that each feature the same presentations and information:
Monday, August 24, 2020, 5:00 – 7:00 p.m., on Zoom
Wednesday, August 26, 2020, 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. on Zoom
This is a fantastic way to get up to speed quickly on the essentials for teaching at Canisius College. Adjunct faculty who are teaching at Canisius for the first time this fall can benefit, but returning adjunct instructors are also welcome.
