Back into the swing of spring

Over two hundred different students participated in the Welcome Week festivities presented by the Campus Activities and Programming board during the week of January 13, as students returned from winter break. A jam-packed four-days of hard-work and dedication cancelled out the stress that students had forgotten about during their entire month away from Cabrini.

The events kicked off on Wednesday night, Jan. 15, as CAP board presented act one of their coffeehouse series in the New Residence Hall with live band Six Strings and Vinyl. “The first coffee house was fun and I think they will be a success in the future also. Six Strings and Vinyl was a pretty good band and I enjoyed hanging out listening to them,” said sophomore Maria Moglioni.

Thirsty Thursday was second choice for over one hundred students on Jan. 16, when comedic hypnotist, Dale K., presented a mind-blowing extravaganza. This Chicago based hypnotist transformed a platform of students into Barney the dinosaur fans, adult-film-movie-watchers, Lassie-lovers and Outback boys. “It was really weird,” said Jen Stoltzfus, a sophomore who was hypnotized that evening. Dale K. certainly brought smiles to the faces of a lot of stressed students not ready to get back into the swing of spring 2003. “He was really funny and highly entertaining,” said Student Government president, senior Bernadette Hazel.

The enthusiasm continued into Friday night, Jan. 17, when CAP board presented Casino Heist, an interactive hi-tech show who left two Cabrini students with a free trip for two to the Bahamas. After a series of obstacles and mind-teasers Justin Yon, a freshman, worked hard to win a trip. Audience member, Colleen Hoy, also won a trip by merely supporting the event.

The Welcome Week events ended with a New Year’s Eve, Eagles themed dance on Saturday, Jan. 18.

“Welcome Week is a great beginning to a semester of awesome opportunities for the student body to get involved and to have fun for free. There is still a lot they haven’t seen yet,” said CAP board president, senior John Verdi. Stay tuned for more free events; you never know what you may win.
