Canisius College Reviews
Rating 3.66 out of 5 764 reviews
Absolutely loved my first semester and all of my classes. My professors were great and being in the city of Buffalo was so fun.
The campus is outdated and could use some updating. The business school is one of the best in the area and most of the professors are good at teaching the material in a way that allows students to really understand what is being taught.
I wish this school was more diverse. I’m a student of color and I often feel left out and neglected. I’m not bashing Canisius, however, I wish they had a more diverse and inclusive school culture.
as a gradulate of canisus i am disapointed in the direction the college has gone. THe campus is in bad shape and reputation has fallen
The professors at Canisius did an incredible job of working with students who were taking online classes. They made themselves available to answer questions and make sure that we still felt supported. All materials were readily available for online students.
Canisius felt like home right when I stepped on campus! The community is warm and everyone is very welcoming. Professors make themselves available to answer questions and really take the time to get to know you.
Canisius College is a great community to be a part of!! Whether you're a student, a professor, or an employee. The campus is small, quaint, and everyone feels like family here!!!
Pivoting to online learning at Canisius was nearly seamless. We faced so many challenges because of the recent pandemic but Canisius did the best they possibly could to meet the needs of the students.
I had a great 4 years at Canisius! The advantage of being in the city and the energy of a young, growing city like Buffalo made my experience. Had great relationships with professors both in and outside of the classroom. The College helps getting experience outside of the classroom, with the culture of Canisius for students to get internships early and often.
Had a few online classes. Usually with a couple of assignments a week and discussion boards. Had reading during the week on your own and maybe a paper or two throughout the semester.
Loved all 4 years at Canisius and would love to go back for grad school. The professors really care about you as a person - you're not just a number.
I didn't spend most of my classes in online learning b/c I graduated pre-COVID. I did take a couple of online classes over the summer, which were all great.
Great community and academic programs. I have grown so much in my time there and am thankful for all they have done and helped me with. I am prepared for after schooling.
The professors have been very accommodating. I enjoy having the freedom to do classes when I can. It doesn't work for everyone but the professors are always there.
Canisius has a beautiful, urban campus that is close to nice spots to walk/run, as well as convenience to downtown restaurants and bars via the campus train station. The new workout center, in the center of campus, is really nice. The police do a great job of patrolling the area, and I have never seen any security issues on campus. Classes are taught by actual professors, who are always available for questions. The business school is really good, and well-respected in the region. If you’re looking for a smaller campus environment that still offers D1 sports, you will enjoy Canisius.
Professors were invested in making the experience as effective as possible, and were very committed (and also provided flexibility whenever it was needed).
My online experience at Canisius College was much more prevalent then I expected it to be, initially, I was enrolled completely brick and mortar before gradually teachers became unsafe with the concept of Covid and in person classes, so naturally my classes began to move online. With this, I expected for the teachers to struggle and be unsure with how to use the technology that would be necessary for day to day class; but to my surprise, the teachers were well versed and efficient in the use of the technology and the transition was extremely smooth. I was very happy with the zoom meetings and the ability to keep the class entertained and excited to learn even with the circumstances. Overall, I was very pleased and happy with the experience that I had learning online at Canisius College.
I am only a freshman at Canisius College, but have really enjoyed my time that I have spent at the College. The people and the professors are extraordinary and truly care about your well being and your education, something I find extremely important in an education. Furthermore, they're very personable, the amount of times I have had a question and/or needed help on an assignment has been far too many times to count on two hands. The teachers ability to be open for communication through zoom calls or quick email responses is very helpful and makes the student feel important to the community they are involved in. My only reason for not giving a 5-star review would be due to Covid, the school struggled initially with finding a way to create a safe way of handling the issue; however, towards the end of the semester they found their grove and were able to handle the situation much more efficiently. I have been pleased so far and look forward to my future at Canisius College.
Online learning is not ideal, but its what you need to do right now. But I do appreciate what Canisius is doing because its not in their control.
Canisius is great for me, its really close to where I live which makes it ideal for me, I am a non traditional grad student so it works for me.
