Office of Alumni Engagement
The strength of the Canisius alumni network isn’t just that it’s 40,000 strong; the strength of our alumni network is that they stay connected.
They don’t forget Canisius after they graduate. They subscribe to The Griffin. They stop by to visit former professors. They volunteer on Community Day. When we battle Niagara, you’ll see business executives and entrepreneurs decked out in blue and gold, respected community leaders and esteemed academics cheering as loudly as undergraduates.
Exciting things are always happening at Canisius and at alumni programs around the country. Join fellow graduates to cheer on the Griffs at a sporting event, or recognize distinguished alumni at the annual awards dinner. From reunions on campus to regional events across the country, there is something for everyone.
