Faculty/Staff Invited to Reunion Tent Party

School’s out for the summer … and that means the Alumni Tent Party is right around the corner.

Faculty and staff are invited to join us in the Quad, on Friday, June 3 at 7 p.m.  It will be three years since we’ve been able to host an in-person tent party and the Alumni Engagement Office is excited to welcome alumni back to campus – and we know that they love bumping into past faculty and staff members whom they connected with while being a student – so please consider joining us for drinks, food trucks, ax throwing and more!

Details and registration can be found online here (as well as a list of folks registered to attend): Canisius College Reunion Tent Party! Tickets, Fri, Jun 3, 2022 at 7:00 PM | Eventbrite

Annual Alumni Note Writing Program

The Office of Alumni Engagement is looking for Canisius faculty and staff, who are also alumni, to participate in its annual Alumni Note Writing Program.

The volunteers for this program write personal, hand-written letters to prospective high school students who have been accepted by the college but have not yet deposited yet.  If you are willing to help with this initiative, please contact Erin Zack at erin.zack@canisius.edu and she will arrange for a note writing packet to be sent to you.  You will receive everything that you need to write the notes, including note cards, stamps, the students’ names and addresses and a sample letter.  We ask each volunteer to write to 15 students.

Email erin.zack@canisius.edu if interested!
