Well February so far has been quite fantastic and I’m going to tell you how it got better. Well first off, Valentine’s Day came around and I gave my mother a call. I’m not one to celebrate V-Day too much unless it’s with a significant other. I just don’t think it’s quite as meaningful unless it’s with someone special, rather than just a friend. Here on campus though, the Afro-American society did something pretty special…Read more
Last Thursday night, I was telling Ms. Dawn, who cuts our hair, about how I planned to do so many things over spring break, like finish some research, work on a couple papers, and even spend more time with my family because I finally can. I had a mental list of things I can do around the house as well, like finally do my laundry, and help clean the house and so on. Well, guess what? None of the things I planned for happened, not even close. Right after my family’s annual Easter brunch, I came down with a cold/allergy/cough. It was sick. I was sick…Read more.
Only as I walk through the neighborhood surrounding Canisius do I realize the vibrancy our student population brings to both the Hamlin Park neighborhood and the City of Buffalo. It’s amazing to think about how we students take for granted the energy level the campus gives off when we aren’t on holiday. Nonetheless, it is indeed Easter/Spring break. This year our two breaks, Easter and Spring, were consolidated into one extended holiday because of the way Easter falls…Read more.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I love this holiday. Everyone always seems so happy and everywhere you look there is green. Yesterday was the St. Patrick’s Day parade in downtown Buffalo. I did not have the privilege of attending but everyone that went told me it was an amazing time. I can’t wait to go next year!…Read more.

Dave’s back. I figured I’d write once before my hibernation (aka Spring break) and once after, then compare my intentions with my actions and see how comedic they are. I intend to get a nice laugh out of it all in the long run. In any case, everyone is gearing up for Spring Break besides myself, because I’m too busy studying for exams, writing essays, and remixing music projects for classes, all at the same time. Not to mention work, club meetings, and packing. It all equals one big DAVE AWESOME TIME…Read more.
There are a number of events throughout the year that bring everyone to downtown Buffalo to revel with friends and catch up with all those familiar Buffalo faces you see as you gallivant about the historic landmarks that comprise our city. The St. Patrick’s Day parade is one of those and is also one of the highlights of the academic year. It brings people together in a fashion that rarely happens. People of all ethnic backgrounds can be Irish for a day…Read more.
This past weekend we had quite the snowstorm here in Western New York….Is that surprising? Because, really, a few feet of snow does not scare me too much anymore. I laugh when cities close down because they get six inches of snow…SIX INCHES of snow! Wow! We get six inches and us Buffalonians do not even blink an eye. It is something I love about this city! …Read more.

Ok, so I know I said that I’d write from San Fransisco, but I didn’t. I was too busy sight seeing and running up and down I don’t know HOW many hills. Lets just say that San Fransisco is the only place where you can walk to a place uphill BOTH WAYS, and that my friends is no lie. If you’re wondering why I was there in the first place, I went with the College Newspaper: The Griffin, to attend a Newspaper Convention that was held in…you guessed it, San Fran….Read more.
I am researching autism in China while I am studying abroad here in Beijing. I plan to use this research as a component of my Honors senior thesis when I return to Canisius in the fall. I am specifically investigating the Chinese understanding of autism – what is it? What causes it? How do we treat it? And I am also looking at how parents and society at large react/respond to autism and where people with Autism Spectrum Disorders fall into Chinese society…Read more.
Everyone in Buffalo seemed to expect a relatively debilitating and wicked snowstorm to hit the city this weekend, but in my opinion the resultant snow , in actuality, was nothing less than what would be expected of an early March snowstorm in Western New York. Nonetheless, we’re Buffalonians and we dealt with the storm…Read more.
