Inauguration day is just about at hand. Tomorrow, Saturday, October 22, Canisius College will install Steve K. Stoute as the institution’s 25th president. The entire Canisius community is invited to attend and celebrate this historic moment in the college’s history.
The event starts at 11:00 a.m. at the Koessler Athletic Center and a post-inauguration reception will immediately follow the installation.
Don’t forget that today is the Canisius Community Event for President Stoute. Faculty, staff and students are invited to this special luncheon, which runs from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. in the Bart Mitchell Quad.
In honor of President Stoute’s heritage, the luncheon will feature Caribbean fare offered by KT’s Caribbean Cuisine and entertainment by Caribbean Extravaganza. There will also be games and giveaways for all to enjoy.
Join President Steve Stoute and his family at 7:00 p.m. tonight, Friday, October 21, in cheering on the Ice Griffs hockey team as it faces off against the RedHawks of Miami (Ohio) at LECOM Harborcenter.
Canisius faculty and staff are encouraged to bring their family and friends to this inaugural event and take advantage of a special $10 faculty and staff ticket option. Faculty and staff can show their Canisius ID cards at the ticket office in the Koessler Athletic Center in advance of the game, or at the ticket window at LECOM Harborcenter on the night of the game, to secure their discounted tickets. Canisius faculty and staff can also purchase a season ticket plan for hockey, with pricing starting as low as $110. For more information on that offer, call Todd Hummel in the ticket office at (716) 888-TIXX, or click on the TICKETS tab at the top of GoGriffs.com.
Friday’s game against Miami (Ohio) has been designated as the program’s annual “Pink the Rink” night, and all fans are encouraged to wear pink as Canisius joins with Kaleida Health and the American Cancer Society to raise funds and raise awareness for breast cancer screening. There will be a special raffle available to all fans, with all donated funds going directly to head coach Trevor Large’s “Real Men Wear Pink” campaign. A raffle ticket costs $10 (or three tickets for $25), and the winner will receive an official, game-worn Canisius hockey jersey.
For tickets, or more information, please call the Canisius ticket office at (716) 888-TIXX.
