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 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.
