Freshman Living Learning Communities
If you want to live and learn with students who share your similar interests, then consider Canisius’ freshman themed housing. Whether your interest lies in science, spirituality or creative writing, themed housing gives you the room to experience independence, a strong sense of community, and opportunities to learn more about and promote common interests
- FRESHMAN SCIENCE FLOOR – Explore the sciences amongst other young pioneers when you move into Frisch Hall’s freshman science floor. Resident students major in a variety of scientific disciplines at Canisius and all have access to live-in mentors: their upper-class science peers.
- CREATIVE WRITING FLOOR – Nourish your creativity for writing on the creative writing floor of Frisch Hall. Here, you and your peers share ideas, stories and writing strategies in a collaborative environment. You’re also invited to participate in several co-curricular activities, including community writing hours, coffeehouse readings and writing workshops with professors.
- IGNATIAN FLOOR – Deepen your commitment to spirituality, community and justice on the Ignatian floor of Frisch Hall. Under this guidance of a Canisius Jesuit, this living and learning environment challenges you to think about your role in the greater community.
- FRESHMAN HONORS – Expand your mind and your heart when you live on the freshman honors floor in Dugan Hall. Reserved solely for first-year students in the All-College Honors Program, this living and learning arrangement encourages community and camaraderie among Canisius’ best-of-the-best.
- THE EDUCATION & TEACHING FLOOR - This floor will be new to Canisius in 2013. The floor will offer students an opportunity to become a leader in the classroom as well as in the community. This like minded community will provide professional opportunities to students through bringing faculty members to the floor, participation in field trips, and collaboration with other campus organizations focused on education. Members of this floor will also be assigned an upper-class mentor.
