New Student Summer Picnic

Celebrate summer with Canisius. Tour the campus. Get your schedule. Meet future friends. Staff from financial aid, student accounts, residence life and advisement will answer your questions.

The New Student Summer Picnic, will be on Sunday, July 13, 2014 from 10:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.

At 10:30 AM a Mass will be held at Christ the King Chapel for those who wish to participate.  Followed by an 11:30 AM - 3:30 PM Picnic on the Canisius Quad.

At 11:30am, students will have the opportunity to see a residence hall room, measure for items to bring in the fall, and drop off some of their belongings (We’ll store it for you until August).

What to do if you are interested in the Early Drop Off:

Please bring your belongings to campus in sealed boxes and park in the Frisch Circle (located off of Hughes Ave. between the Student Center and Frisch Hall). The following format should be used to label all boxes:

  • Full Name
  • Residence Hall
  • Room Number (If assigned to a suite, please indicate either side A or side B)
  • Number of boxes (i.e. 1 of 2, 2 of 2, etc.)

If an item cannot be sealed in a box, it should still be labeled using the same format as above. All boxes will need to be brought into the Palisano Pavilion at the Residence Life table. All boxes will be in your room when you check in for August Orientation. 

Please Note: Students will not be able to see their assigned room. However, students will be able to see a typical model room style.

This event is not mandatory and is not New Student Orientation.
