Perfection: what is it and do we really want it?

Why do we have to have perfect grades in order to be smart? Why do we have to have the perfect relationship in order to be in love? Why do we have to be making large amounts of money just to be happy? For some, the constant thought of perfection is a light switch in […]

Who are the millennial generation?

A Loquitur video created by Mackenzie Harris This is also the generation that is stereotyped for being obsessed with selfies, not caring about anything other than themselves and has been nicknamed the “me me me” generation. That is absolutely not true. Millennials are not defined by what others may think or say, but rather by the actions […]

Don’t use stereotypes. Be rational

When it comes to the topic of the recent civil rights injustices in America, it is important to not be irrational. Cornell Brooks, president and CEO of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, recently spent a day at Cabrini as part of Nerney Leadership Institute’s Executive in Residence program. At the Executive […]

Is college really worth it anymore?

It’s that time of year again. Everyone is in the midst of planning out what classes they want to take. Some students may still need to finish their core classes, major requirements or just are looking for classes to be full-time students. But when we pick our classes, shouldn’t we be more concerned with what […]

Short-term service vs. long-term service

Deck: In no way are either forms of service wrong, but there are certain times where one form fits best. What is short-term service? Some of the services trips that campus ministry and individual students go on are looking at the shorter-term aspect of the community. This is not a negative thing, because the work […]

Student diversity: not just an office

Diversity should be appreciating everyone’s differences. There is no reason for all of us to be the same – that is boring, so just celebrating those differences is a start. A diversity office should celebrate differences but realize that we each are at a different stage of openness to differences. As Cabrini becomes more diverse, […]

The search for a parking spot: the endless loop

We all know the drill. We want to find a parking spot close to Founder’s, close to Dixon or close to our residence. We are willing to circle the lot until someone leaves. We are willing to waste our time and gas. Sometimes it seems worse than the King of Prussia Mall at Christmas. The […]

Human trafficking has many forms

Odds are, when you think of human trafficking, you picture a young woman just like in “Taken” or the one pictured on the Loquitur’s front page. But in fact, the reality is that “there are an estimated 27 million adults and 13 million children around the world who are victims of human trafficking,” according to […]

Juno is killing us with work, students say

Nor’easter Juno brought back the #CabriniBlackout for the fourth time in this school year alone with a smaller amount of snow than what the meteorologists were predicting and of course additional school work. According to text messages sent out last year via Cabrini’s emergency text services, there were a total of eight days when Cabrini […]

State of the Union spelled out

In the State of the Union last week on Tuesday, Jan. 20, President Obama focused the nation’s attention on higher education, a topic that is extremely important to all students, professors and everyone who works at Cabrini.

Alcohol and sex: 2 college norms?

It’s typically not unusual to see red solo cups in the hands of a stumbling college student every Thursday evening for “Thirsty Thursday.” The norm of on-campus drinking and partying has always been around and it still remains as one of the most popular activities that takes place on campus.

How do you like those Cabrini humps?

There is something new to be found on campus, some may say that it’s our new President or the latest additions to the nationally ranked mens basketball team or the obnoxiously large yellow speed humps that have littered the campus drive. An eye sore or a safety precaution?

The Ebola virus

A look inside LGBT

Why should someone be judged by their sexuality? Why does it matter whether someone is homosexual, heterosexual or asexual? Why can’t society just allow individuals to be who they are, except that and move on? It does not affect anyone except themselves, so the justification of judgement in the LGBT community is completely irrelevant.
