Campus Candids

The campus community wasn’t able to gather for a group photo on #CanisiusGivingDay, as it has in the past … BUT … that didn’t stop administrators and staff across campus from showing their #OneCanisius spirit. Here are just a few of the snapshots shared on Wednesday, March 3.

Overwhelming Support for Canisius Giving Day

In One Day, One Community came together for One Canisius. Thank you!

Canisius Giving Day 2021 was nothing short of amazing. The #OneCanisius spirit proved stronger than ever with 1,876 donors making 2,291 gifts for a total of $353,549 in just 24-hours. Wow! Gifts were made in support of the Canisius Fund, academic programs, athletics teams, institutes and scholarships.

 The generosity showed by thousands will make an immeasurable difference for our students. As the video above states, Giving Day 2021 has passed but the impact of your gift – and the gifts of so many others – is just beginning.

Employee Appreciation - Tim Hortons Photo.png

We’re a full year into dealing with Covid-19 and it’s clear how hard everyone has been working to do their best in the face of so many challenges and transitions. As a small token of appreciation, take a break and enjoy a cup of coffee or hot chocolate on President Hurley from the Tim Hortons on campus! We look forward to the days when we can all gather together again and celebrate as a community.

Faculty and staff should stop by the Human Resources Office in Old Main 100 or the President’s Office in Bagen 100 between 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. to obtain a voucher for a medium-sized coffee or hot chocolate. Vouchers are valid to use today, Monday, March 8.
