Our 72-acre campus rests atop a labyrinth of tunnels. The underground network runs from Dugan Hall to Old Main, from Iggy's in Palisano Pavilion to Bouwhuis Library. The tunnels serve a practical use—they keep us warm through Western New York winters. But there’s more to it than that. They’re vibrant. You can’t walk 10 feet without hearing a welcoming ‘hello.’ Bright posters adorn the walls—invitations for upcoming events. Friendships form on the pathways to class. Snacks are shared. Courses are taught. Clubs rally. Our tunnels keep us connected, in more ways than one.

Canisius Summer Overnight 

 Monday, July 11 – Tuesday, July 12, 2016

Rising seniors here is your chance to come spend the night at Canisius College! Join us in July for a two day overnight visit that will help you get the information and experience you need to start thinking about college. Sessions will include leadership activities, information on applying to Canisius, exploring all Canisius has to offer, plus fun games and activities throughout the days. This event is for prospective students that are entering their senior year of high school this fall. 

Thank you for your interest in the Canisius Summer Overnight! Unfortunately, this event has been filled to capacity. If you would like to be added to a wait list, please call the Admissions Office at 716-888-2200. You can check out our visit page for other visit opportunities as well.

Weekday Visits

To get the full Canisius experience, sit down for a one-on-one conversation. Get your questions answered in person. Spend half-an-hour getting to know an admissions counselor. See our state-of-the-art campus for yourself. This individualized approach is a lot like a Canisius education.
