For security purposes, changes are occurring to how we log into D2L and Zoom.
Starting at the end of the Spring 2022 semester, instead of seeing the D2L login page, you will see the familiar Canisius College login page. This is a minor change and should have little to no impact on how you access D2L.
Sometime during the Summer months (between June and August), you will only be able to log into Zoom using your Canisius College Password. This means that, if you logged into Zoom using your Canisius Email address but used a password that was different from your Canisius Password, you will now be required to log into Zoom using your Canisius Email and Password via Single-Sign-On (SSO). This also means that you will have to go to canisius.zoom.usto access your online Zoom account instead of going to zoom.us. Additionally, for the desktop and mobile app, please view the instructions for logging in using SSO by clicking this linkhere. This change should have little to no impact on scheduled meetings, saved recordings, or Zoom settings.

Sigma Delta Pi, the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society/La Sociedad Nacional Honoraria Hispánica is the largest collegiate foreign language honor society in the U.S. This year we extend our congratulations to five new members of the Canisius chapter, Chi Tau.
The initiation took place in Old Main 314 on April 20, 2022 where students received the membership insignia. Sigma Delta Pi’s insignia is the royal seal of Fernando and Isabel, representing Castilla, León and Aragón; its colors are red and gold, its flower the red carnation, and its motto the Greek phrase “Spanías Didagéi Proágomen” meaning “Let’s go forth/continue forth under the teaching/guidance of the Spanish language.”
Sigma Delta Pi honors those who excel in the study of the Spanish language and in the study of the literature and culture of the Spanish-speaking world. Its mission is to foster an understanding, appreciation and respect for the peoples, cultures and societies of the Spanish-speaking world, and to honor those who have promoted and reinforced a better understanding of the contributions of the Spanish-speaking world.
