Three cheers to the campus community which showcased its team spirit on Thursday, ahead of the NFL season opener between the Buffalo Bills and Los Angeles Rams. If you tuned in until the end, then you know that Bills quarterback Josh Allen threw three touchdown passes to lead the team to an amazing 31-10 win.

Mass of the Holy Spirit

As a Catholic, Jesuit University, one of Canisius’ annual traditions is to celebrate the Mass of the Holy Spirit at the beginning of each academic year.  This year our mass will be held on Wednesday, September 14 at 10:00 a.m. in the Montante Cultural Center.  All members of our campus community are welcome to join us, regardless of their faith tradition.

This wonderful tradition allows us to celebrate our solidarity as a campus community and ask the spirit of God to bless our studies, work, and activities throughout the academic year.  Our academic calendar includes a special break in the class schedule on this day so that all members of our campus community (students, faculty, and staff) have the opportunity to attend and participate in the mass.  As a reminder, any classes that normally meet on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday pattern do not meet on this day. Classes that normally meet on Wednesday only or on a Monday and Wednesday pattern will still meet on this day.

Part of our tradition includes a formal procession of faculty members in their academic regalia.  Faculty members interested in being part of the academic procession should R.S.V.P. HERE. 

Following the mass, brunch will be served in the Richard Winter Student Center Economou Dining Hall.

We hope to see many of you at the Mass of the Holy Spirit.

Supplies, Service and Training for Xerox Devices

Toner will no longer be automatically shipped to each device. There was too much over shipment and loss of items to make this work on our campus. From now on, all requests for supplies will go through the ITS Help Desk.

If you are having trouble with your departmental Xerox device, feel free to contact the ITS Help Desk.  We can help you determine if ComDoc will need to come out for service or if it is something we can handle internally.  If you are sure it is a problem with the device, end users should contact ComDoc and schedule service directly.

When you receive the “low toner” messages on a device, please contact the ITS Help Desk and we will send you the appropriate items. Do not replace them until the device indicates to replace them but this way you will have them on hand when needed.

If you find your device is out and you do not have toner on hand, you can also visit the Help Desk in Horan O’Donnell Room 016 and pick up as needed. Staple cartridges for devices that have that finishing option are also available at the Help Desk. There is no longer an additional charge for these supplies.  Paper ordering has not changed.

You can submit these requests to the Help Desk by calling Ext. 8340, Emailing or by visiting

Click here to see the article on the Canisius College wiki page for more information on all these procedures related to printing and supplies.

Used cartridges should be returned to the Help Desk.  Please mark them as used and drop them off or send them thru campus mail.  If you have spare toner left over from the old devices, please drop it off at the Help Desk or send it via campus mail as well.  We will sort through it and return what we can to ComDoc or reuse on campus as possible.

Training on usage of the Xerox devices is available any time for all users.  Simply email and write “training” in the subject line.  A Xerox trainer will contact you and schedule an in person training session for you and your colleagues.  

Feel free to contact the Help Desk if you have any questions, comments or concerns.
