Community. Opportunity. Innovation.

Buffalo is so much more to us than just a line on our mailing address. It’s our classroom, our playground, our studio and – most importantly – our hometown. New York’s second largest city boasts major-league sports and entertainment, a happening arts scene, world-famous foods, opportunities for outdoor adventure and more. There’s something for everyone in Buffalo – and then some.

Canisius 💛 Buffalo

We’re compassionate, smart, driven (and just a little bit quirky) – just like our city. It’s what makes us Buffalo’s liberal arts school, through-and-through.
