"The accounting program at Canisius is like no other. The professors and staff really work towards helping their students succeed and find jobs BEFORE they graduate. I was lucky enough to secure a position with a big four public accounting firm exiting my junior year which allowed me to have a job 2.5 years before graduation. I completed their 5 year bachelors and MBA program which allowed me to graduate with my bachelors in 4 years and complete a majority of the MBA requirements in my senior year, leaving only 5 MBA classes to be taken my 5th year. With the amount of classes I was taking my 5th year, I was able to focus on studying and taking the CPA exam in which I was completed before graduating with my MBA and more importantly, starting working full time. This program is unlike any other and I had a huge advantage over my entire starting class once working full time as my CPA exam was already completed."

"Canisius College provides an excellent environment for students. The class size is ideal for the learner that appreciates a close relationship with their professor. Having smaller class sizes also helps to forge strong friendships with the other students which is a major benefit for group projects. It helps to be surround by high caliber students as well, which is certainly what Canisius College is known to do. By surrounding yourself with other good students, you are more apt to achieve higher levels of success while minimizing the bad situations that can sometimes arise at a larger institution with less focus on ethics. And the facilities are exceptional. Each building is well interconnected allowing ample commuting between classes, especially during the winter. The campus is well positioned in the heart of the city of buffalo affording many opportunities for convenient and affordable housing as well as activities for the weekends. Buffalo is experiencing a strong economic growth that is favorable to millennial's who are seeking a career as well as a geographical diverse place to live. Not to mention the sense of Brotherly Love that each has for one another in the City of Buffalo. I can recall may times where the professors went above and beyond the classroom duties to teach the material during office hours. Additionally, there are many opportunities for seminar style courses that help to expose students to other topics of interest. I took advantage of one such seminar series which tremendously benefited my understanding of applying the material that I was studying to the real world."

At Canisius College, students within this major have many opportunities to travel and have internships, which will broaden their knowledge within the field as well as increase their job competitiveness. Professors are well educated, and build great bonds with students."

"Canisius College was the best decision for me. The school gave me a great education and many opportunities that I would not have received from any other college. I was in the classroom teaching by my sophomore year, which is very early for an Education Major. The classes are small and the professors are amazing and really know their students."

"Canisius College offers students a unique experience both in the classroom and in the community. Students are required to complete a service learning component, which at first seems tedious, but is ultimately beneficial. Being able to apply academics and the Jesuit values to the community around you is completely fulfilling. In addition to giving back to the Buffalo area, students are required to complete courses that push you out of your comfort zone, enriching the learning experience. The low staff to student ratio allows students to build close relationships with professors and fellow students. My experience at Canisius has developed me into a well-rounded scholar, a professional, and has allowed me to build a strong moral compass. I would highly recommended this school to anyone looking to walk away with more than just a piece of paper."

"It provided a well-rounded liberal arts education with the special attention and community spirit you can only find at a smaller college. It felt like everyone, from faculty to students, was part of a real community, and the professors were there to help you guide and maximize your education on a personal level."

"Canisius College was an exceptional school to study the natural sciences at. The college has a great team of full time and adjunct professors who are very well versed in their subject matter. There are plenty of opportunities for further education and research in all fields. The social aspect of Canisius College was also great. There are numerous clubs and athletic teams to participate on. I truly enjoyed my time at Canisius College."

"Although Canisius College is a private school and viewed as a pricey college to attend, it really does provide convenience when furthering your education. For example, I wanted to continue working full time while receiving my master's. I did not want to apply to the cliche online institutions because I just didn't feel it was the right path for me. When I found out about Canisius' online master's programs, I immediately started researching the possible options I could take in order to benefit my career. I chose TESOL. I am so happy with this decision. I am honestly so enthused in what I am learning and excited to learn more in my field. The professors are so personable- and this is all online! I feel like I have a sense of direction and I can easily connect with the professors as well as me classmates! I would strongly recommend Canisius College to any student, especially a student looking to earn their master's and especially for those going for education."
