Student Involvement

While the Office of Student Life understands that every Canisius student’s top priority is their academic career, we strive to provide a campus environment full of enriching events, activities, organizations, and service opportunities to create a more fulfilling collegiate experience.  Our office, in conjunction with over 90 student clubs and organizations, is here to help you find your niche, develop lasting friendships, and tap your leadership potential.

From cooking, theater, and gaming to vegetarianism, sustainability, or skiing – it’s easy to find an organization that meets your interests.  Seek out a club that aligns with your academic pursuits such as the Accounting Society or the Society of Pre-Health Professionals.  Celebrate Canisius’ diversity through Global Horizons, the Afro-American Society, or Latin American Students & Friends!  Dive into service through clubs such as Habitat for Humanity or Colleges Against Cancer.

The Office of Student Life also collaborates with many of our student organizations to provide a robust social calendar full of fun events.  Dance the night away under the stars at C-Block’s Annual Bonfire, sing Christmas carols during the lighting of the tree every December at Christmas in the Quad, or take a selfie with our mascot Petey during his birthday party in the spring!

There’s literally something for everyone at Canisius.  Check out our full list of clubs and organizations. If you still can’t find what you’re looking for, let Student Life help you launch a new organization.  We do that too!

The possibilities are endless.  And it takes just a little enthusiasm to make your years at Canisius the best years of your life!
