University status does matter. Boston College is a University. It's called "College" because the "University" name was already taken by another school, "Boston University". Both, top notch schools, award terminal degrees (PhD, M.D., etc.) Neither Niagara nor Bona award terminal degrees any longer since they closed their Seminaries years ago. They were allowed to keep "University" in their names because they had it for so long. In the academic sense they are really colleges. Like CC the highest degree they now award is a Masters' Degree.As to the News editorial, CC does not need to take advice from it. THE POWERS THAT BE were said to be working on plans for awarding Doctorate level degrees several years ago. That apparently fell by the wayside when stagnation started to take over. The right new blood can change all that, if TPTB make the right choice for new leadership. He/She must be able to think with "big picture", "outside the box" vision. University status is part of that, as also is a solid D1 athletics program, as also is a diverse and widely ranged student body, as also is first rate facilities, as also highly effective fund raising, and as also is, of course,top notch academics taught by a top notch faculty. "The University of St. Peter Canisius, in Buffalo". Imagine that!

What school would Canisius merge with? I'm all for it - anything to expand the footprint and increase enrollment. I'm not sure a university name would help, but I don't think it would hurt. Being able to go by juts "Canisius" is an important step - just like with Marquette, Xavier, Gonzaga, Duquesne, etc.

Outside of that, the blueprint is pretty simple:

Get a better fieldhouse for basketball / volleyball

Invest more in athletic staffing - esp. basketball

Invest more in athletics marketing - esp. social media and video content

Invest in staff that can help market athletes with their personal brand

Invest in improving the game experience and atmosphere

It all comes down to $$$$

We don't have to merge with anyone. Vision and $$$ to advance the vision can get it done.
