    The Canisius campus is beautiful, especially the Chapel and the Montante Cultural Center. Buffalo is a great city with lots to do.

    I love this school, so much. I can barely put it into words. The campus is gorgeous, the faculty is welcoming and students are well for the most part on my intelligence level if not above. the people hear are so diverse and it extremely rare or of choice to be without a niche of friends. Though it may be more difficult for commuters it is extremely easy to keep a social life and balance grades, resume builders and a job.

    Canisius is filled with many activities, there is virtually something to do for everyone. Personally, I enjoy the Little Theatre, but there are many clubs for you to join. School-wise, the teachers are very helpful and understanding, and are willing to help you if you ask.
