Canisius has been preparing for over one hundred accepted students and their families to arrive on campus for Undergraduate Accepted Students Day over the past few weeks.
This experience is one of the largest events that the Office of Undergraduate Admissions hosts each year. This year, the event will be in person, a contrast to last year’s event which was completely virtual.
Over the course of two weekends, March 27 and 28, as well as April 17 and 18, there will be a total of eight smaller events where students will travel around campus, participating in different experiences.
Admissions Counselor Tiffany Wagner has spearheaded the planning of the event and she, along with the rest of the admissions team, have been actively planning and making sure that the event is safe, fun and informative.
Running any event during the pandemic is challenging; making sure that everyone on campus — in addition to the guests — follow safe guidelines is key to a successful event.
“Limiting the number of guests, everyone is being required to mask up, families in groups to control where, when and how many people will be in a space at any time, providing hand sanitizer to all,” Wagner said.
On top of having a chance to meet with faculty and current Canisius students, accepted students will also have the opportunity to meet with clubs and organizations as well as be able to get a feel of the campus atmosphere.
Wagner said, “Families will be led around campus on a walking tour. They will stop throughout the tour to participate in five campus experiences, which will highlight student life, academics, the Canisius experience and the success teams by our Griff Center.”
