When it comes to her years spent at Cabrini, Trish Arnold has had a fulfilling college career. It would be an understatement to say that she is a busy person.
The list of activities that Arnold has been involved in seems endless. For three years, Arnold has been an executive board member of the Student Government Association and chair of the student activities CAP board.
Volleyball has also played a big part of Arnold’s last four years. She won the All PAC Conference both freshman and sophomore years, and has served as the team’s captain for the past three years.
Believe it or not, that’s not all. Arnold was sent to Florida during her sophomore year for the National Student Athletic Conference. She was chosen out of all student athletes at Cabrini. That same year, along with this year, Arnold was named MVP. In addition, she had the opportunity to be Rookie of the Year as a freshman.
Currently, Arnold spends the majority of her time coaching at the Baldwin School and Cardinal O’Hara High School. She also teaches at O’Hara , which is a very familiar place to Arnold since she graduated from there four years ago.
Arnold is heavily involved in Campus Ministry. She recently served as a leader of the Search retreat this semester.
In addition, Arnold has served as an orientation counselor (OC) and a co-facilitator for College Success classes.
The little time that Arnold has for herself she spends hanging out with her friends.
“My sister (Katie) goes to Cabrini, too. One of the things I will miss the most is seeing her. How often can you run down the hall and see your best friend?” Arnold said. “I just want to make the most of the last couple of months that we all have together.”
Back home in Havertown, Arnold enjoys going to see her sisters at the various sporting events that they are involved in.
“Most of the time I go home for birthdays and to see my grandparents. I get to see my dad at O’Hara everyday because he works there, too,” Arnold said.
To sum up her time as a Cabrini student and to offer advice to other students, Arnold says to get involved on campus. She says there is more to Cabrini than just schoolwork.
“I learned a lot in my classes, but I also learned other things outside of the classroom in activities. You don’t have the opportunity to get to know people anywhere else like you do at Cabrini,” Arnold said.
Above all else, Arnold advises “Don’t regret anything. College is just a short time. Make the best of it. Once it’s over, it’s over.”
Even though Arnold is still a student here, she feels like she has already transitioned. Looks like Havertown isn’t the only place that she considers home. Cabrini is home, too.
