"Trocaire on Seneca" Ribbon Cutting

BUFFALO, N.Y. -  A ceremonial ribbon cutting took place as Trocaire College celebrated the expansion of its Main Campus in South Buffalo to include a location on Seneca Street.

Dr. Paul B. Hurley, Jr., Trocaire College president, presided over the official ribbon cutting festivities.  Joining Hurley in cutting the ribbon were Sister Nancy Hoff, RSM, President, Sisters of Mercy, NyPPaW Community; Ann Enger, Greater South Buffalo Chamber of Commerce Executive Director; Ryan Hartnett, Trocaire Liberal Arts Director; Trocaire Massage Therapy Program Director Reba Sidell; and, massage therapy student Vanessa Wojciechowicz.

The newly renovated facility located at 2262 Seneca Street, just two minutes from the main campus, features over 7,500 square feet of classroom space.  Much of the space is being utilized for the college’s Massage Therapy program and the Massage Clinic, which is open to the public.  The new location offers six clinical massage rooms as well as a clinic office and more convenient, curb-side public access for the student-run massage clinic.

In addition, two 40-seat state-of-the-art classrooms offer space for many classes in general studies, alleviating space concerns that recent enrollment growth has fostered.

“We are pleased to offer our students additional classroom space within such a short distance of our main campus,” noted President Hurley.  “This new facility is an extension of our Main Campus footprint in South Buffalo.”

Trocaire College, founded in 1958 by the Sisters of Mercy of Buffalo, is a private college offering associate and baccalaureate degrees as well as certificate programs in hospitality, healthcare and technology.  Trocaire’s main campus in Buffalo is the hub for healthcare majors while the Russell J. Salvatore School of Hospitality & Business on Transit Road in Williamsville offers courses in hospitality, dietetic technology, human resource, computer networking and Trocaire’s newest program in Healthcare Informatics.
