Student Activities has organized for students to see Philadelphia’s top sports teams this fall. Students had the opportunity to see the Flyers win on home ice against the Buffalo Sabres, the Phillies take the field against the Atlanta Braves, and to see the Sixers tip off against the Indiana Pacers.

Students also went to Washington D.C., to visit sites such as the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Arlington National Cemetery, Lincoln Memorial, and the Smithsonian.

The office of Student Activities also had planned a trip to New York City. “A lot of students can’t afford trips to NYC and Washington D.C,” assistant director of Student Activities Amy Hecht. Students had the chance to see a Broadway show, regularly priced at $100, for $20. The trip was unexpectedly canceled due to a conflict with the bus company, Warner Coach.

Jason Bozzone, director of student activities, and Amy Hecht have developed relationships with the Sixers and Flyers and other Philadelphia teams so that Cabrini can offer students tickets to see these events at a much cheaper price. Through group discounts and our affiliation as a non-profit school, Bozzone and Hecht are able to give students the freedom to get off campus affordably. “A lot of students complain there is not a lot to do on campus and its nice get students involved,” Hecht said.

“Student activities have the responsibility to assist students in their learning development and growth through co-curricular opportunities,” Bozzone said.

More events are planned for the spring. A Playstation marathon is being considered for the spring as well, involving gamers competing in SOCOM and Madden 2004. Les Miserables will be shown in Philadelphia on March 11th. Prior to that, student activities were fortunate enough to get a limited number of tickets to see the Sixers take on the powerhouse Los Angeles Lakers in an inter-conference battle. The Sixers play the Lakers Feb. 5. Tickets for all sporting events go on sale two weeks prior to the actual game. Ticket prices are not set, but will range from $25- $30.

Student activities are able to organize these events using as Bozzone said, “A substantial budget.” Students receive tickets for a significant discount and essentially the money they do provide goes directly to transportation.

If any students or faculty have any event ideas please contact the office of Student Activities at extension 8410 or by Dec. 5.
