Canisius' mascot is the Golden Griffin; the college adopted the griffin as a mascot in 1932, after Charles A. Brady wrote a story in a Canisius publication honoring Buffalo's centennial year as a city. Brady wrote about Jesuit-educated explorer Rene-Robert LaSalle's Le Griffon, built in Buffalo; the griffin was first used on the La Salle medal in 1932 and from there spread to the college newspaper and sports teams. According to GoGriffs.com, the griffin is a "legendary creature with the body and back legs of a lion. It represents values such as courage, boldness and strength befitting students and athletes alike; the College was the first home field of the Buffalo All-Americans of the early National Football League. Around 1917 Buffalo manager Barney Lepper signed a lease for the team to play their home games at Canisius College; the All-Americans played games at Canisius before relocating to Bison Stadium in 1924.
Canisius College's fraternities and sororities are overseen by the Canisius College Office of Student Life. The three college-approved Greek organizations on campus are the Lambda chapter of the fraternity Sigma Phi Epsilon, the sorority Phi Sigma Sigma, the professional organization Alpha Kappa Psi.

Darwin D. Martin House
The Darwin D. Martin House Complex known as the Darwin Martin House National Historic Landmark, was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and built between 1903 and 1905. Located at 125 Jewett Parkway in Buffalo, New York, it is considered to be one of the most important projects from Wright's Prairie School era, ranks along with The Guggenheim in New York City and Fallingwater in Pennsylvania among his greatest works. Wright scholar Robert McCarter said of it: It can be argued that the Martin House Complex... is the most important house design of the first half of Wright's career, matched only by Fallingwater over 30 years later. The Martin House Complex was the home of Darwin D. Martin, a businessman, his wife and family, his sister Delta and her husband George Barton. Martin and his brother, William E. Martin, were co-owners of the E-Z Stove Polish Company based in Chicago. In 1902 William commissioned Wright to build him a home in Oak Park, the resultant William E. Martin House built in 1903. Upon viewing his brother's home Martin was impressed to visit Wright's Studio, persuaded Wright to view his property in Buffalo, where he planned to build two houses.
Martin was instrumental in selecting Wright as the architect for the Larkin Administration Building, in downtown Buffalo, Wright's first major commercial project, in 1904. Martin was the secretary of the Larkin Soap Company and Wright designed houses for other Larkin employees William R. Heath and Walter V. Davidson. Wright designed the E-Z Stove Polish Company's Factory built in 1905. Wright designed the complex as an integrated composition of connecting buildings, consisting of the primary building, the Martin House, a long pergola connecting with a conservatory, a carriage house-stable, a smaller residence, the Barton House, built for George F. Barton and his wife Delta, Martin's sister; the complex includes a gardener's cottage, the last building completed. Martin, disappointed with the small size of the conservatory, had a 60 ft long greenhouse constructed between the gardener's cottage and the carriage house, to supply flowers and plants for the buildings and grounds; this greenhouse was not designed by Wright, Martin ignored Wright's offer "to put a little architecture on it".
Over the next twenty years a long-term friendship grew between Wright and Martin, to the extent that the Martins provided financial assistance and other support to Wright as his career unfolded. Some twenty years in 1926, Wright designed the second major complex for the Martin family, Graycliff, a summer estate overlooking Lake Erie in nearby Derby, NY; the Blue-Sky Mausoleum Wright designed for the Martins in 1928, but never built, was installed at Buffalo's Forest Lawn Cemetery in 2004. The complex exemplifies Wright's Prairie School ideal and is comparable with other notable works from this period in his career, such as the Robie House in Chicago and the Dana-Thomas House in Springfield, Illinois. Wright was fond of the Martin House design, referring to it for some 50 years as his "opus", calling the complex "A well-nigh perfect composition". Wright kept the Martin site plan tacked to the wall near his drawing board for the next half century; the main motives and indications were:First – To reduce the number of necessary parts of the house and the separate rooms to a minimum, make all come together as an enclosed space—so divided that light and vista permeated the whole with a sense of unity.
In 1900 Edward Bok of the Curtis Publishing Company, bent on improving American homes, invited architects to publish designs in the Ladies' Home Journal, the plans of which readers could purchase for five dollars. Subsequently, the Wright design "A Home in a Prairie Town" was published in February 1901 and first introduced the term "Prairie Home"; the Martin House, designed in 1903, bears a striking resemblance to that design. The facades are identical, except for the front entrance, the Martin House repeats most of the Journal House ground floor. An awkward failure was no direct connection from the kitchen to the dining room; the Journal House had a serving pantry, but Wright was forced to give this up to accommodate the pergola. Of particular significance are the fifteen distinctive patterns of 394 art glass windows that Wright designed for the entire complex, some of which contain over 750 individual pieces of jewel-like iridescent glass, that act as "light screens" to visually connect exterior views with the spaces within.
More patterns of art glass were designed for the Martin House than for any other of Wright's Prairie Houses. Walter Burley Griffin landscaped the grounds, which were created as integral to the architectural design. A semi-circular garden which contained a wide variety of plant species, chosen for their blossoming cycles to ensure blooms throughout the growing season, surrounded the Martin House veranda; the garden included two sculptures by Wright collaborator Richard Bock. The Complex is located within the Parkside East Historic District of Buffalo, laid out by the American landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted in 1876. Darwin Martin purchased the land in 1902. Construction began in 1903, completed with Wright signing off on the project in 1907; the original complete Martin House Complex was 29080 ft2. Built between 1904 and 1905, the Martin House is distinguished from Wright's other prairie style houses by its unusually large size and open plan. On the ground floor an entry hall bisects the house.
To the right, behind a large double sided hearth, is a central living room. The room is flanked by a dining library which together create a long continuous space; the other axis, centered on the hearth, continues the living room out to a large covered veranda. To the left of the entry hall, is a reception
Buffalo Metro Rail
The Buffalo Metro Rail is the public transit rail system in Buffalo, New York, United States. The system consists of a single, 6.4-mile long light rail line that runs for most of the length of Main Street in the City of Buffalo, from KeyBank Center in Downtown Buffalo to the south campus of the University at Buffalo in the northeast corner of the city. The first section of the line opened in October 1984. Construction on the initial Metro Rail line began in 1979 and opened in stages: the surface portion opened on October 9, 1984 while the subway opened as far as Amherst Street Station on May 20, 1985, following an opening ceremony on May 18; the line was further extended to University Station, serving the University at Buffalo, on November 10, 1986 due to construction issues at LaSalle Station. At the time of the start of construction, the line was intended to be the first line for an extensive heavy rail system that would spread throughout the city and suburbs. However, during the construction of the line and afterward, Buffalo's population declined by 55% from around 580,000 in 1950 to about 261,000 in 2010 and the new line's ridership was much lower than anticipated.
The cost of the urban section was so high that no funding was available to extend the lines into the suburbs, including the Amherst campus of the University at Buffalo. Efforts to obtain funding for feeder lines have been met with little to no success. Although a centerpiece of the original line, the downtown transit mall did not live up to expectations; because of poor traffic patterns on Downtown Buffalo's Main Street, some business groups called for the removal of the transit system so that they can return to normal vehicle traffic and curbside parking on Main Street, hoping that this measure would recreate the prosperous days of the past. In 2008, Buffalo began a project to reintroduce cars to Main Street; the project in question involved creating a shared trackbed/roadway with curbside parking, as well as the permanent closure of the Theater Station, which occurred on February 18, 2013. The closure of Theater Station meant that Fountain Plaza Station, located 546 feet south in the 500 block of Main Street, now serves as the beginning and ending of the Free Fare Zone.
On January 23, 2015, after less than two years of construction, traffic was reintroduced to the 600 block of Main Street, between Tupper and Chippewa Streets, in the Theater District. On December 15, 2015, traffic was reintroduced to the 500 block of Main Street, between Chippewa and Mohawk Streets, in the Central Business District. On January 9, 2017, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced in his State of the State address that funding would be secured for the Amherst and Cobblestone line extensions. If successful, this would be the first extension in the service's history. Funding for an environmental review into the Amherst extension was approved in 2018; the study is expected to take between 30 months. Metro Rail is a light rail transit system as characterized by the American Public Transportation Association although it shares many characteristics with "heavy rail" metro systems and could be considered a "light metro." 80% of its track is an underground subway with high-level platforms. This section has eight stations that are spaced widely apart, comparable to subway systems elsewhere.
This section is cut-and-cover from Allen/Medical Campus to Utica deep-bored from Delavan/Canisius College to University. The remaining 20% of its track are on the surface on Main Street in downtown Buffalo. On the surface section, trains interact with automobile traffic from the theater district where it emerges from the tunnel until Mohawk Street where it reverts to a transit mall and at cross streets, where movements are governed by traffic signals. Catenary poles are spaced every 130 feet to support the overhead electrical lines. Metro Rail operates electric multiple-unit light rail vehicles in two-to-four car trains with power drawn from an overhead catenary system. Three-car trains are limited to rush hour and special events and four-car trains to special events; the Buffalo trains and SEPTA's light rail cars in Philadelphia are the only modern non-articulated LRVs operating in the United States. Fares are collected through a proof-of-payment system enforced by ticket inspectors. Travel is free on the above ground portion of the system.
Regular fare is $2. All stations have ticket machines. Metro Rail runs as follows: Monday-Friday from 5:10am–12:50am, Saturdays from 7:05am–12:50am, Sundays and holidays from 8:00am–11:50pm. Trains run as as once every ten minutes at rush hour and no less than once every twenty minutes. In July 2008, the NFTA reported that the passenger count "eclipsed the previous year's tally by 23%." As a result of this, in September 2008, the NFTA began an earlier starting time to the weekday schedule in response to an 11% increase in ridership over eight months of growth. Numbers are from the Federal Transit Administration's National Transit Database, which contains statistics from 1996–2011: Buffalo Metro Rail is ranked 25th in the nation in light rail daily ridership service as of 2013, with 5,058,300 passengers. However, it is noted that the line lacks extended branches to the suburbs, being confined to the city limits of Buffalo. One group, the Citizens Regional Transit Corporation, advocates for expansion.
As indicated in its statement, the CRTC seeks to educate the public, public off
Medaille College is a private liberal arts college in Buffalo, New York. The college's students come from the Western New York and Southern Ontario regions. Medaille is structured similar to AMCC universities such as Penn State Erie and St. John Fisher College; the curriculum is patterned around Liberal Arts & Science foundations, which emphasize interdisciplinary coursework and private university standards. Within the past year, numerous faculty members have been awarded research grants through such organizations as the National Endowment for the Arts, National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health. Medaille's main campus is located in Buffalo, New York, on a tree-lined urban setting at the intersection of New York State Route 198 and Parkside Avenue; the campus is within the Olmsted Crescent, a historic area of parkways and landscape designed by Frederick Law Olmsted. Adjacent to Delaware Park and the Buffalo Zoological Gardens, the main campus is accessible by car, bus or Metro Rail.
The College is served by the Humboldt-Hospital NFTA rapid transit station, a circulator shuttle runs between auxiliary parking at the zoo and campus. Medaille is close to the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, the Burchfield-Penney Art Center, the Buffalo & Erie County Public Library, the Buffalo Museum of Science, the Buffalo History Museum. In addition to the Buffalo campus, Medaille has a branch campus in Rochester, NY; this campus offers undergraduate degrees for adult students in Business Administration, graduate degrees in Business Administration and Organizational Leadership, as well as Mental Health Counseling.

Allen/Medical Campus station
Allen/Medical Campus is a Buffalo Metro Rail station located at the corner of Main and Allen Streets at the northern end of Buffalo, New York's downtown and is the last underground station to the south requiring payment before entering the Free Fare Zone. The station was temporarily closed in 2015 to incorporate a new building at the University at Buffalo School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences into the station's aboveground entrances. Allen/Medical Campus station is one of four stations that does not offer an off-road bus loop, requiring passengers to board/debark using curbside stops. Route 7 buses heading downtown and route 8 buses heading toward Marine Drive do not board at the curb at the same side as the station, served by six bus routes: NFTA 7 Baynes-Richmond 8 Main 29 Wohlers 64 Lockport 66 Williamsville 67 Cleveland Hill University at Buffalo shuttles Blue Line - serves as a shuttle van to University at Buffalo-affiliated locations of the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus from the University at Buffalo-South Campus.
In 1979, an art selection committee was created, composed of NFTA commissioners and Buffalo area art experts, that would judge the artwork that would be displayed in and on the properties of eight stations on the Metro Rail line. Out of the 70 proposals submitted, 22 were chosen and are positioned inside and outside of the eight underground stations. Allen/Medical Campus station is home of four pieces of work, from Scott Burton. Richard Friedberg's offers an objective sculpture made of steel, it is polychromed with durable paint and high gloss coloration. It is located on a wall over the escalator between the mezzanine and the level between the mezzanine and train platforms. Charles Clough offers riders a large photographic mural based on the work of Charles Burchfield, Buffalo's most famous painter; the Latin Gallery group offers riders a wall located along a sidewalk at the south end of the station in bright colors, containing selected excerpts from chosen poetry. The work is on colored enamel fused to copper tile.
Though subtle, Scott Burton offers riders a pair of bronze benches located in the middle of the mezzanine near the ticket vending machines. The two benches pay tribute to the American Arts and Crafts Movement; the benches represent downtown directions to the station. Each of the benches are invite participation, by passengers sitting in them.
