We welcomed the newest members of the Canisius community to campus Thursday for our Accepted Student Celebration.
Students who earned admission into the Class of 2027 and their families were congratulated in our Scaccia Auditorium as our team provided additional information of what it will be like to enter our Blue Doors this fall.
"Welcome to the brotherhood," Michael Scime '23 said to close his address to members of the Class of 2027, while accomplished alum Brandon Littles '02 talked about how his Jesuit education at CHS had a profound impact on him as a young man.
President David Ciancimino, S.J., and Principal Tom Coppola '01 illustrated why attending Canisius is a uniquely special experience that provides students a life-changing education.
Through presentations by our students and faculty, attendees learned more about our unmatched academics in our Center of Excellence and heard first-person testimonials to our service and retreat programs in our Chapel of the Sacred Heart.
Students also got a jump-start on what their student life experience will be like, and they heard from Athletic Director Jim Mauro about "the best coaching staff in Western New York" in one of the very best facilities in the area, the Kennedy Field House.
The evening began with a special reception at our Center for the Arts at 1140 Delaware Ave. for those who have excelled academically to earn entry into our Ignatian Scholars Program. Ignatian Scholar Thomas Webb '23 and Magis Academic Program Director Paul Cumbo '97 welcomed the scholars and spoke of Canisius' tradition of students pursuing excellence at the highest levels.
