In 1957, Mother Ursula Infante founded Cabrini on the same site as Villa Cabrini. Both institutions lived on the same campus and took part in the blessing of Grace Hall.

Woodcrest Estate Property was bought in 1953 by the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. It was used to house their orphanage and was named Villa Cabrini.

The Middle States Association gave Cabrini full accreditation in 1965 and released this statement: “The administrators are dedicated, warm, sincere and competent persons with whom the Evaluation Committee favorably impressed. The president obviously has the esteem and confidence of the administrative officers. Loyalty and devotion are everywhere present.”

In 1967, after 10 years as President Cabrini College said goodbye to its founder as Mother Ursula Infante retired and traveled briefly to Milan, Italy.

In 1970, an exchange program was established with Eastern College. This provided more course offerings and also brought in the first male students to the campus. In 1975, male students became campus residents. That same academic year, the first male president of S.G.A. was elected.

In its first year, the mansion provided all the facilities for the college. The following year the stables on the grounds were converted into dorm rooms, classrooms and a laboratory. In 1965 Holy Spirit Library was built.
