Canisius College is part of Hamlin Park history. Please join us on Sunday afternoon to share your family history and memories of an area they may have lived in prior to 1960.

Please join us for the Launch of our "I Remember" campaign at the ROCC Holiday Reception featuring Mr. Clarke Eaton, founder of the Restore Our Community movement. We advocate for federal funding to place a beautiful parkway promenade over the NYS Route 33 between Ferry and Best Streets, which will restore part of Frederick Law Olmsted's vision for beautiful community spaces accessible in all areas of Buffalo.

Very PROUD of these young people!!!

Today, I expectantly had the pleasure to see this group of young people in the New
Science Building on campus going through the interview process. This component has been stressed over the many summers this program has been at Canisius College. Mrs. Elizabeth Caffee heads the program for more than five years. Mrs. Rhonda Hands assists her as a contact person with guidance counselors at various high schools in the Buffalo School District.

Today, the group had exposure to what is expected of them when having to interview for a college acceptance possibility, or an after school job, or even a scholarship opportunity. There are some students who have been groomed over the years and found this process one that they had mastered. There are also students new to the program this summer who found the experience to be somewhat challenging as this type of interfacing is not necessarily stressed during the normal academic year in Buffalo Schools. Lunch was to be served at completion of the presentation.

This summer, the Academic Talent Search "Earn While You Learn" program took a different direction. The students participated in acquiring golf skills two days a week at the Paddock Golf Center in Tonawanda and the they spent two days at the community garden at Zion Dominion Church as they did last summer.

These students are having the opportunity to become global citizens by developing skills that will help them advance in the corporate world and also, they are learning how to help themselves and others less fortunate to survive in this world by growing their own food. The session began July 7th and will be ending August 15th. We look forward to working with some of these students during the 2014-2015 school year.

Photos were taken by one of our Senior Mentors, Kameron Wood, a junior at Purchase College, Purchase, NY. Hopefully, he will share some of the many photos taken this summer with this site. All and all, we are VERY PROUD of all of these young people who are destined to make a difference in this world.

Annual Fall College Fair (Part 2) 09/20/2012

Morethan 50 students were in attendance at the College Fair given by Academic Talent Search. More than 25 colleges sent representatives to speak with interested students having a desire to applying or considering to apply to colleges. After three hours of interacting, everyone was ready for lunch. Students had the experience of dining in the the Canisius College dining hall using their $7 meal voucher to order an entree with choice of sides or sandwich, side, and a beverage. These young people were mannerable, polite, and considerate of other patrons in the dining hall. This group demonstrated a serious commitment to their career goals. Some had more definite plans than others and most seemed receptive to learning to make a good impression during an interview. Hopefully, ATS will sponsor a winter,early spring college fair for future 9th-11th pondering the next level ni their academic journey to complete a trade certificate and/or a college degree.
