Canisius College

Buffalo, NYwww.canisius.edu
Canisius College, a Jesuit university, boasts a robust business program, as well as other well-respected academic programs. About a quarter of the college's over 2,500 undergrads study business, management, marketing, or related areas. Canisius stands out for its reliably small class sizes, which enable pupils to receive close attention from their professors. Future accountants receive good training: Canisius alumni consistently rank in the top tier on the New York State CPA exam. Those headed to Wall Street can help manage a real portfolio, the Golden Griffin Fund, while at the college. Education is also a popular field of study'Canisius offers a major that certifies graduates to teach children from birth through sixth grade. Extracurricular activities could include participation in the school's NCAA Division I Golden Griffin teams. But off the field or court, in keeping with the Jesuit tradition of community service, students can participate in activities like the "burrito project," where volunteers make and deliver meals to homeless people in downtown Buffalo.
