It’s just one more ‘Late Night’ on Cabrini’s campus

Friday the 13th was anything but scary this year. The Office of Student Activities hosted its much celebrated "Late Night" on Friday, Feb. 13, with many fun-filled activities for students all across campus to enjoy. The event is a pilot program to help Director of Student Activities Jason Bozzone, Assistant Director of Student Activities, Amy Hecht, as well as the rest of Cabrini's students to see if this is something Cabrini can hold in the future.

Happy “Un-Valentine’s” day to you

Valentine's Day is a day usually spent with loved one's and surrounded by flowers and chocolate, but if you are sad this year you don't have someone special to share it with, don't fear. Cabrini's office of student activities will be hosting its Un-Valentine's day themed "Late Night" event on Friday, Feb.

More than just an actor in the play of life

When I first applied to Cabrini as a freshman, the first thing I looked for was to see if there was a theater department. Many colleges have a program but don't often perform shows, or have a difficult time finding students willing to perform. As a second year student now, I am thrilled to know that we do have a theater department and many of my fondest memories when I leave here will no doubt be that of performing in the shows.

School support no effect on team’s moral

Tom O'Hora says he was blessed; "blessed with an ability to win." O'Hora, Cabrini's head cross country and track coach, has experienced many great opportunities with track and they have helped him reach where he is today. A Pennsylvania Hall of Fame inductee in 1989, O'Hora said he "owes something for his success.

Cavs 1-1 in tip off tournament

It was two days of fast action basketball as the Lady Cavs took on Chestnut Hill and Delaware Valley College, on the weekend of Nov. 21-23. Sophomore forward Jennifer Skursky scored 14 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to lead Cabrini College to a 58-56 win over Chestnut Hill College in the first round of the Cabrini Tip-Off Tournament.

Parking aggrivates commuters,

One of the reasons I chose to attend Cabrini College was that it was so close to my house, and I could save money by commuting. As a second year student, those days where I am looking aimlessly to park my car somewhere besides the empty parking space behind the Dixon Center dumpster, makes me wish I lived on campus.

Player profile

Perhaps Lisa Leslie started out this way. As a 19-year-old guard and forward for Cabrini's basketball team, Jackie Yoder is sure to turn some heads before this season ends. A freshman from North Penn High School, it was her mother and grandfather who influenced young Yoder to continue playing basketball throughout her high school years.

Women hit the weights Pt. 2

If one takes a look in the local Ballys' gym or even at Cabrini's fitness center, there is not just men working up a sweat near the barbells. Weight lifting is becoming more and more popular for women, and it looks as though it is a trend far from being called a fad.

The big transition

Watch out, David Beckham. There is a new freshmen soccer team at Cabrini this year, and these young players are hoping to turn heads by the end of their first season. Freshmen athletes in any college have to deal with the new pressures and expectations placed by their coaches and opponents, but Cabrini's youngest soccer team, guided by coach Doug Meder, already has a few qualified players hoping to conquer whatever challenges are put on them this year.

Computer, education and science at top of the market

As a new class day starts at Cabrini and the Widener lot becomes filled with cars, it seems likely that the reason so many students spend over $18,000 a year to attend classes is to one day hold a successful job. Although this is true for students across the country, recent problems with the economy have left many jobless and scared.
