The teachers know their material very well and have time to help students in and out of the classroom. Material that has been covered in high school is expanded on and you will begin to develop your own conclusions in certain subjects.
Am enjoying being here
Canisius is filled with many activities, there is virtually something to do for everyone. Personally, I enjoy the Little Theatre, but there are many clubs for you to join. School-wise, the teachers are very helpful and understanding, and are willing to help you if you ask.
Bang for the buck
It's very expensive to go here, especially if you intend to dorm, so be prepared to apply for as many scholarships as possible. Don't forget, every bit counts!
Tips for prospective students
Be prepared to get lower grades than you've received in high school, it's natural and happens to everyone. It's a big jump, going from high school to college, and Canisius is filled with opportunities for you. If you ever find yourself stuck, you can always talk to your advisor, one of the most helpful resources on the campus.

I feel like I have learned a lot by attending Canisius. I feel like all the classes I have taken are completely worth it, and I have gotten a lot out of them.
Am enjoying being here
Not only do I enjoy the classes, but everything else is fantastic. I was looking for a great school with an active faith basis, and I definitely found that at Canisius. The activities and clubs on Campus are phenomenal as well.
Bang for the buck
Canisius was the most expensive school I have applied to, but they offered me the most aid. This is a great school for getting financial help that is very much needed.
Tips for prospective students
Prospective Canisius students must be ready to work hard, because if a student puts in all their effort here it is definitely rewarded. The teachers here are great and really go out of their way to help students and grade fairly.

Canisius is a great school for students who value academics, faith, sports, and a high standard.

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.

There is always something to do on campus, whether it be a club meeting, sports game, or college sponsored event. There are so many opportunities to make new friends. The college also provides many opportunities for internships, community outreach programs, research, and great on-campus jobs.
Bang for the buck
The price for tuition and room may be a little high, even with the amazing merit scholarships offered, but you get so much in return. The professors are so kind and caring, the class sizes are almost always under 40 students, and the events are great. Because Canisius is a Jesuit school there are many service trips that students can take such as Winter Service Week, Alternative Spring Break, and International Service Immersion trips. These sometimes cost extra, but the college picks up some of the expenses.
Tips for prospective students
If you apply online there is no application fee and the form is much easier to fill out. When I was making my college decision, I went to an overnight at Canisius and that really let me see what the student life was really like.
Great for these types of students
Canisius is great for outgoing and driven students. You won't feel like a number. Professors and other faculty will actually know you as a person and take an interest in who you really are.

Granted I came from Public schooling but I have learned a lot attending this schools. Things I may have had previous skills in are being enforced. Most professors are extremely helpful no matter if you are and A or a C student, if you can't get help from your professor the school offers a variety of tutors.
Am enjoying being here
I love this school, so much. I can barely put it into words. The campus is gorgeous, the faculty is welcoming and students are well for the most part on my intelligence level if not above. the people hear are so diverse and it extremely rare or of choice to be without a niche of friends. Though it may be more difficult for commuters it is extremely easy to keep a social life and balance grades, resume builders and a job.
Bang for the buck
The school is expensive. Do not try and enter without going over your finances. Sometimes I think it's just obscenely overpriced. I love getting the perks of a private education but sometimes I feel like I will be bankrupt at graduation. If you are smart, hard working and check out all of your scholarship options beforehand you have potential to balance the hefty tuition cost. However the classes are small, the equipment up-to-date and the events for the school just to keep it's student happy are great. There are a lot of opportunities it does offer so if you can afford it, please do attend!
Tips for prospective students
Work out you finances and schooling beforehand. You never know if there are limited opportunities you could be walking right by. I found out at the end of my sophomore year that NCCC offers a great Digital Media Arts program that gets you an associates degree then sets you up to transfer to canisius, not only are you getting canisius accepted classes out of the way but you're saving money!
If you want to do something, change something please SPEAK UP! The school is extremely observant and if you need help, want change then TELL THEM. Struggling with finances, classes and life I was suffering alone, but when I spoke up I was immediately given attention. They want to help!

I hear that the school does well for it's Business program and somewhat medical. I hear NOTHING about it's business transfer to F.I.T. program. The school is extremely involved in international studies and has a wide variety of foreign students, programs and study aboard options. As a digital media arts majors I do face issues with focusing on my specific media, they do NOT choose that for you! The school does have video game design that is not associated with the computer science major of the school! There are classes from simplest website and flash videos to complex coding for iphone apps and more. The professors involved are absolutely fantastic. While the Canisius t.v. program seems non-existent, I have seen multiple students majoring in digital media arts and communications be sent on trips to foreign countries, concerts, expos, etc to build experience. * OPPORTUNITIES*
