Each eighth-grade boy is invited to spend a school day at Canisius as a Crusader For The Day. This is a great way to get a sense of what life at Canisius is really like. A Crusader For The Day accompanies a freshman or sophomore through his daily schedule and gets to interact with other students and teachers.
