"Welcome Home" Griffins
Homecoming is getting a facelift! Mark your calendars for the new and improved Homecoming 2017 celebration Friday, September 22 – Saturday, September 23.
New this year, we’ve combined our successful Affinity Group Receptions held in Science Hall with our crowd pleasing Tent Party in the Quad to form one party at one location! Science Hall is the party destination for our new “Welcome Home” event.
The weekend begins Friday with the popular Favorite Professor reception in the Science Hall atrium at 5:30 p.m. Our "Welcome Home" event will begin at 7 p.m. in and around Science Hall.
Enjoy live music, food truck offerings from Lloyd Taco, Frank Gourmet Hot Dogs, Ru’s Pierogi and Sweet Melody’s, wine from 21 Brix Winery, beer from Resurgence, and kombucha tea from Bootleg Bucha – a majority of which are owned by Canisius alumni!
On Saturday, the events continue with Fall Fest, Java with the Jesuits and culminate with Mass in Christ the King Chapel, where we will celebrate our Griff Couples with a vow renewal ceremony. Saturday night concludes with casual decade and affinity group meet-ups at various locations around town including Parkside Meadow, SoHo, Cole’s and Mr. Goodbar.
We are excited about these new changes and hope everyone comes home to join the celebration.
