What Students Are Saying

3.66 Average Rating
Canisius has a great atmosphere. The campus is beautiful and everyone is very friendly. This college is very expensive but definitely worth the money especially if they have a great program for your major.
Sara from Orchard Park, NY
Canisius College is a lot of fun. We have tons of events all over campus and because the school is smaller, the students have more of an opportunity to know each other and get involved on campus. The college also has a wide diversity of clubs which allows you to really get into whatever club you want to join; if the club you want isn't there you can also start a club pretty easily.
