A little rain couldn’t dampen the excitement of Move-In Day 2023 on Wednesday, August 23 when Canisius welcomed the Class of 2027. The incoming class includes more than 600 first-year and transfer students – and marks the institution’s largest group of new Griffs in the last three years. The Class of 2027 is also comprised of 53 legacy students, whose parents or grandparents have graduated from Canisius, and several international and exchange students who hail from countries across the globe such as Australia, France, Germany, Nepal, Nigeria, South Korea and Spain.
Thanks to the efforts of Student Life and our student-athletes (below) – who lent so many helping hands – so that Move-In Day could go smoothly for students and their families.
Demonstrating that Canisius truly is one family, President Steve Stoute, his wife, Alison and their daughters, joined the Move-In Day activities (below) meeting and greeting with new students and their families, as they moved into their home-away-from-home in Bosch and Frisch Halls.
Wednesday’s Move-In Day was followed on Thursday with New Student Convocation, an annual tradition for the campus community to collectively celebrate and embrace our newest Griffs and their families. As part of the celebration, faculty and staff lined the entrance to the gym in the Koessler Athletic Center to cheer on the new students as they entered and provide a show of support as they begin their academic journey (below).
