Campus Candids

Education students in Developmentally Appropriate Practices in Early Childhood enjoyed a private tour of Explore and More Children’s Museum at Canalside.

They were able to connect pedagogy with real life experiences. Wrapped up in play, this unique museum teaches children the history of Buffalo, its’ magnificent architecture, its’ multicultural fabric, Buffalo sports, the significance of its’ waterways and other points of pride.  Canisius students had as much fun as young children while they ‘played to learn’ with the many exciting activities and hands-on exhibits. Everyone agreed that Explore and More is a true Buffalo gem.

Hurricane Ian

Hurricane Fiona made landfall in southwestern Puerto Rico on Sunday September 18 causing devastating flooding, power outages, and landslides on the island. Over the next two days, the storm gathered steam as it barreled into the Dominican Republic and the Turks and Caicos Islands where the storm left most people without power and took multiple lives. 

In the past few days, Hurricane Ian has caused destruction in Cuba where electricity was knocked out on the entire island, as well as devastation in Southwest Florida. 

We hold in prayer all those affected by the hurricane, especially the poor, those on the margins, and those with the least resources to cope and rebuild. Let us pray for all those in the hurricane’s path who continue to suffer from the effects of previous natural disasters, and who wait for us to respond to them with solidarity.

The Canisius Community especially prays for the safety and well-being of our alumni and friends in the path of these hurricanes. We pray for the families of our current students from the affected areas.
