You can add the Google Drive app, and your Canisius Google Drive, to your iPhone or iPad.  This makes it easier to access files you store there for classes or other work at the college.  Also, you can upload photos, video, and other media you create using your iOS device, for use in your Canisius Google Drive.

Once you click "Next" on the Google Login screen, you'll see the familiar Canisius login screen, where you can use your Canisius College username (not email address) and password:
