Students far from home connect at Canisius College

It may be more common on a larger college campus or university, but at Canisius College two young women have traveled thousands of miles to attend the school on Main Street in Buffalo. WBFO's senior reporter Eileen Buckley says the students are from Micronesia. Krystal Saimon is about to begin her second year on a full scholarship at Canisius College, majoring in human resources. Freshman Annalyn Tareg will be majoring in adolescent education and has connected with the only other student from Micronesia on the campus.
