Canisius has great programs for the majors and minors that they offer. The science programs are very demanding, but will prepare you for medical, dental, and vet schools.

    Canisius has a very wide variety of programs here at the college. The staff here is outstanding and very caring. The small class to profesor ratio gives you a better experience. The facilities at Canisius are improving and the new Science Center is a work of art. Coming to Buffalo may not seem all that and may seem scary because the surroundings, but here at Canisius it is a tight knit community and everyone knows eachother and helps you out.

    Canisius is a Jesuit school with small class sizes. It was great being able to know my professors personally and have one-on-one time. The athletic department was also great and very supportive of it's student-athletes.

    Canisius has a great community feel and professors that are interested in their student's success. There are a lot of opportunities for jobs after college, clubs and organizations to get involved in and make new friends. Canisius was a welcoming environment for me when I transferred here and I am happy with my decision to attend this college.

    Comfortable setting and rigorous academics. Biology program is challenging but extremely rewarding. I especially enjoy being a teaching assistant.

    Canisius is great, small class size, amazing people and a very helpful staff. The size of the school is an advantage to me, because you'll get a lot of one on one time with professors.

    On a scale of 1-10, I would rate my college a 6.5. Out of class, I would like my teachers, but the courses are rigorous, and very difficult. The food is also not up to my standard AT ALL.

    Canisius College definitely makes you feel at home. Since it's a small school, you get to know people easily and you see people you know often. Also, since it's so small, it is very easy to get around and to classes with time to spare.

    Canisius was the best college that I went to when I was looking; everyone was kind when I talked to them on the phone, and helped me with everything. When I actually came here, there was an Orientation Week; basically, they, the college, helped you to get to know everyone on campus, as well as help you settle into your room.
