On a campus where school spirit and student involvement have hit more than a few bumps in the road, a new staff has come in, bringing with it a new attitude and a new enthusiasm to breathe life back into the community. This weekend, the office of Student Activities, the Campus Activities and Programming Board and the Student Government Association would like to invite you to spend a few days in the country, Cavalier Country.
Beginning Thursday, Oct. 3 and continuing until Sunday, Oct. 6, family weekend is packed full of activities and events that members of the campus community and their families can take part in and enjoy. According to Jason Bozzone, director of student activities, “This weekend should be a culminating event for students, family, friends and faculty where everyone can take pride in Cabrini and what Cabrini stands for. This should be a time to live the Cabrini ideals. We should all be proud of our education inside and outside of the classroom.”
For a new addition to Cabrini, Bozzone said that he has received incredible support from a variety of different outlets on campus in getting together an event that everyone can be happy with. “From the very first day that I stepped foot on this campus I have received support from facilities, the residence life staff, CAP Board, SGA, the Alumni Affairs office, the Marketing Communications department, housekeeping, Wood Dining Services, the athletic department and the office of Institutional Advancement,” Bozzone said.
Bozzone also said, “Dr. Neville, the acting vice president for student development, has been a huge support and a mentor to me. I couldn’t have asked for anyone better.” With the help and assistance of so many people on campus, it seems as if this year could be a turning point for Cabrini students, beginning with Family Weekend. “With Neville’s lead, he’s made this a real student oriented campus,” Bozzone said.
The theme of this year’s family weekend is “A League of Our Own” and the SGA office is trying to bring out the uniqueness of Cabrini with more involvement from the students. They have made it clear that the number one priority this year is increased school spirit and community. What makes this year so special is that now, unlike so many years before, there is the support of the administration to make it happen.
Bozzone was enthusiastic when he said, “President Iadarola wants to make sure that student activities happen and that they happen with quality. We just hope that we can live up to her expectations as well as the expectations of the students.”
