What an exciting year to be a Cabrini student. As this, the 50th Anniversary of the college is upon us, there are numerous, wonderful events to look forward to. Our beautiful college will be booming with alumni as they fill their old stomping grounds with happy and loving memories.

If you haven’t heard of anything that will occur on campus this upcoming year celebrating the college’s 50th Anniversary, go to cabrini.edu/50. Throughout every issue, the Loquitur staff will also be running stories about all the upcoming events, so be sure to keep reading.

Cabrini may be a smaller college than most out there, but the experience you receive will not be one you regret. Walking around campus, recognizing people in your classes, professors knowing your name and face, and getting more personal attention are all the major benefits you’ll experience at Cabrini. Not only that, but what college president do you know that could throw a perfect pitch from the pitcher’s mound at the Phillies game and make it all the way to home plate?

Beginning a new school year is the perfect time to start a clean slate. It’s great to be able to clear all your old, bad habits and keep the good ones. Don’t sweat the small, petty stuff. College only lasts for four years, so enjoy every minute. Getting involved is a great way to meet new people and have more fun on campus. If you didn’t join anything last year, Cabrini offers many activities and groups that you may be interested in. To become more involved, check out the involvement fair on Sept. 5.

Your involvement on campus helps Cabrini grow into a stronger and close-knit community. As we celebrate this, the 50th Anniversary of the college, not only will we be making changes about ourselves, but the campus is making changes as well.

Although Cabrini did not sign the contract towards carbon neutrality in the fight to stop global waming, they have made many efforts into making the campus more “green.” Efforts being made are, state of the art energy management systems, green cleaning solutions, increased insulation in existing buildings, and more recently, campus-wide recycling achieved over the summer.

Helping your campus achieve these goals is what will help the college in the long-run. Global warming is a very critical topic, around the world and one that Cabrini is in the process of working on. Improving your community ultimately helps the world in the end.

Enjoy this year, whether it be your freshman, sophomore, junior, or very last year as a senior at Cabrini. Good luck, and take everything for what it’s worth.

Life, at times, can be hard and difficult, especially in college. If you’re having a trying time, keep these inspiring words from Eleanor Roosevelt in your mind, “You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along. . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”
