Griff Weekend

Griff Weekend - September 27-29, 2024

Canisius University is excited to announce our newly reimagined campus experience with something for everyone.

Griff Weekend will combine two favorite traditions – Family Weekend and Alumni Weekend/Reunion – into one amazing fun-filled experience on campus from September 27-29!   

All alumni, families, students, faculty, staff, future Griffs, and friends of Canisius are welcome to attend! 

Graduates of class years ending in 4's and 9's will also be celebrating their class reunions. 

This year, three classes will be celebrating their milestone reunions:

  • Class of 2014 -  10th reunion
  • Class of 1999 - 25th reunion
  • Class of 1974 - 50th reunion

Looking to get involved? Help spread the word and make your reunion a success by joining your class committee. Sign up now!
