Campus Candids

Canisius faculty took some time to “chill out” on Thursday afternoon with an ice cream social break in front of Churchill Tower. The sweet treat was made possible by the Office of Academic Affairs and the deans of the three academic schools. It was their way of saying “thank you” to professors for all their hard work so far this semester.
