Campus Candids

It’s beginning to look a lot like Griffmas on the Canisius campus! On Wednesday night, members of the Student Programming Board lit this 20 foot, Frasier Fir Christmas tree that now stands tall in Bart Mitchell Quad. The annual tree lighting event also included student carolers and hot cocoa for all.

Thanks to President Steve Stoute and his Christmas elves for helping to ‘flip the switch’ on this year’s beautiful Christmas tree.

This year’s tree came from the Arboretum on the Blue Hill, in Springville NY.
