The Community 101 Fair in December has become an annual tradition for freshmen students, allowing them to showcase the projects on which they worked for the entire first semester of their time at Medaille.

On December 9, nearly two dozen projects were on display. Each project challenged students to connect to issues in the Buffalo/Niagara region and to generate solutions to these real-world problems. 

Select topics included:

  • Media and its Effect on the Academic Achievements of Medaille Students
  • The Relationship Between Humans and Animals in Our Community
  • Past, Present and Future: The Story of Buffalo
  • The Refugee Experience in Western New York
  • A Service-Focused Analysis of Medaille College Neighborhoods
  • Exploring Local Activism
  • College Leaders: Writers, Thinkiers and Readers
  • Discovering Buffalo's Identity

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.
