Editorial: School expansion comes at high expense

Cabrini College took a nice solid punch in the jaw in the financial contributions category last year. Since the 2003-2004 school year, numbers have dropped by almost $300,000.

After such a controversial year, the decrease in contributions comes as no surprise to many students and members of the Cabrini community.

As the school relentlessly tries to expand and explore larger media outlets, students living on campus have been subjected to a minimization of dormitory conditions, parking spaces and what seems like a permanent imprisonment of temporary fencing. In the same breath, tuition costs refuse to stop rising, causing our wallets to shrink as well.

One can’t help but consider that the conditions imposed upon present students are a part of the decrease in contributions to the school. Other factors surely have played a role in the $300,000 decrease. One factor that cannot be denied involves the removal of former men’s basketball coach John Dzik.

In the midst of the situation revolving around the successful coach of 25 years, the Loquitur received a great number of letters from outraged alumni refusing to donate to the school ever again.

But have no fear, Cabrini; radio commercials and billboards will save our financial sagging! With the new branding of the school, we are destined to attract herds of new prospective students.

This reporter just wonders if such a large amount of money was needed to spend on the branding of the school.

Are the departments of art and graphic design not two departments that would be very capable of designing a new logo? Ahhh forget it; let’s just pay someone else to do it.

So good luck to Cabrini in the future. The Loquitur hopes the school becomes everything it wants to be, whatever that is, something extraordinary, I guess.
