When the time came to document the work done by students in the Honors Program, the options quickly narrowed down to one. Given the nature of the subject and scope of projects that students would work on over the course of the semester, a video project was the natural choice. 

The final product - The Legacy of Love Canal - combines historical footage with interviews of Medaille students and faculty. It includes a meeting that students held on campus with Lois Gibbs, who played a pivotal role in bringing international attention to the contamination at Love Canal, and who is the founder and executive director of the Center for Health, Environment & Justice.

This short summary does not do justice to this powerful video. We invite you to watch this video and to reflect on what Love Canal has meant to the WNY region and to the individuals who were so deeply involved in that era of our history.

I'm grateful for the education I've received.

The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
