Effects of binge drinking greater than realized

With the recent annual event of Spring Fling, came with it the annual day of binge drinking for many Cabrini students.

For better or for worse?

Start moving and stop your complaining

Get Involved! This is now a Cabrini symbol that is featured on many flyers, posters and other publications. Getting involved is just what Cabrini wants students to do. If students do not get involved, how do they expect things to change?
