Campus Candids

It’s been a busy but exciting few days for our first-year students attending New Griff Orientation. Their ‘taste-of-Canisius’ included campus and community tours, a student services fair, academic & career mentoring sessions, an introduction to our Jesuit values and, of course, a formal welcome and blessing from President Steve Stoute. And the school year just started!
