It was ‘all hands on deck’ last Wednesday, August 24 as Canisius welcomed its first-year resident students to campus. Thanks to all our student athletes, student leaders, faculty and staff who helped make the move-in go so smoothly for our newest Griffs.

‘Freshman’ President Steve Stoute and his family (above) were also on hand to meet and greet Canisius’ first-year Griffs, as they moved on campus. After welcoming students and families upon their arrival, President Stoute made his way through the residence halls to introduce himself and personally welcome the newest members of the Class of 2026 – to campus (below).

A special thank you to Barbara Irwin, PhD, professor and director of the journalism program, whose therapy dog Riley (below) brought smiles to the faces of new students, and providing them (and their families) with some much-needed affection, comfort and support during what can be a stressful time.
