The program is an excellent program. Each graduating class is a small group. It makes it possible to be able to access the professors for help when needed.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2016

As I am beginning my Graduate Program at Canisius College, I couldn't imagine myself going anywhere else. I attended Canisius for my four years of undergraduate studies in Childhood/Special Education. While I knew I wanted to stay in the Buffalo, NY area, I could have chosen one of the many other schools that Buffalo has to offer. However, after the immense amount of support and dedication I received from the faculty and staff of the Education department the past four years, I couldn't fathom leaving the wonderful Canisius Community I've grown to love over the years. The knowledge and support that Canisius has to offer is why I know that this program was the right one for me in order to prepare me for my career in education. The pros significantly out weighed the cons in my decision to attend Canisius for another year for my Graduate studies. The significant downfall of Canisius would be the tuition, which I imagine is why so many other individuals do not have the chance to attend such a prestigious and rewarding institution. Unfortunately, its price to attend is very expensive, making it difficult for its students and families to attend. While I was fortunate enough to receive incredible financial aid during my undergraduate studies, I am now realizing how much more expensive graduate school and ultimately my dream of becoming a teacher is. Other than financial burdens, I am proud to continue my education at Canisius College. Go Griffs!

Great school with an excellent program i feel like i am learning a lot but the tuition is astronomical with little financial assistance. The school is in the city and the surrounding area is not the best i wouldn't feel comfortable walking around off campus at night. There is a lot of off campus houses around school however.

The pro of my graduate program is, it's value in the buffalo and surrounding areas. The con to the program is the amount of work load per course.

The pro's are that staff is usually available and easy to communicate with. Good teachers are in the classrooms and are preparing you for your career. The biggest con is the cost. Also, there seems to exist a lack of diversity. The stereotype that I would use to classify the student's would be, "rich white" people". However, keep in mind this is the stereotypical impression that I have received but it does not apply to everyone who attends.

The Graduate Program at Canisius is sure provide great real world benefit. The staff and faculty are welcoming, skilled, and highly knowledgeable. I am confident that the understanding I will gain here will last me a lifetime in premiere education...all of these are the pros to Graduate School. The con is that now that we are in graduate school it seems that the demands of the world don't give as much leeway in being as active on campus as when attending undergraduate.
