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 current student through his daily schedule and gets to interact with other students and teachers.

You may also contact the office of admission to arrange an individual tour.
