More than 200 students from 15 local high schools were on campus Thursday, to participate in the 43rd annual Model UN Conference. The event was a great experience for students to practice debating and sharing ideas in a professional setting. The high school students were all over campus, from the Montante Cultural Center to the Regis rooms, all dressed in business professional clothes and eagerly waiting their turns to speak.
A special thank you is owed to all the staff for organizing the event and all the Canisius students who were helping the high schoolers!
