CAP Board’s EPIC will be week-long series

Over the past several weeks, posters with only the word “EPIC” have been posted across Cabrini’s campus.

“I’ve seen a few posters around, but I really don’t know anything about what EPIC is,” Amber Ballario, elementary and special education major, said.

This week, the shroud of mystery behind these posters was finally revealed.

“EPIC’s purpose is to bring students together with events that spark their interests,” Courtney Abel, co-director of EPIC and sophomore chemistry and secondary education major, said. “Each day a different event is held on campus. We think they will definitely bring out lots of students,” Abel said.

Sponsored by the Campus Activities Planning Board, EPIC is a week-long series of campus events that will replace the annual spring concert traditionally held after Easter break.

The concert, which hosted well-known bands such as Mae and All Time Low, was re-evaluated due to low attendance.

“We’re going to take events, some that already occur on campus regularly, and make them more interactive or epic basically,” Bryan Janowski, co-director of EPIC and junior elementary education, acting and graphic design major, said.

Kicking off EPIC week on Friday, April 9, will be the “Under the Boardwalk” formal sponsored by the Student Government Association.

Tickets can be purchased in the Office of Student Engagement and Leadership (SEaL) in Jazzman’s for $25. The formal will be held from 8 p.m. until midnight in the mansion.

On the Dixon turf field, students will be able to participate in “Spirit Day” as Cabrini’s men’s lacrosse team takes on Shenandoah on Saturday, April 10, at 1 p.m..

“We’re going to be raising school spirit for the team,” Janowski said.

The student who shows the most school spirit will be selected by members of the cheerleading team and CAP board for a special prize.

“It’s not just how decked out you are, but how hype you are as well,” Janowski said.

The mansion will also be the host of the EPIC Premiere movie night on Sunday, April 12, at 8 p.m.. The comedy “Youth in Revolt,” which has not been released on DVD yet, will be shown on the big screen.

Carnival food and Wii games will also be available with no charge to students.

Students will also be able to jump-start their week with Big Prize Bingo on Monday, April 12, in the Marketplace in Founder’s Hall.

Bingo has always been a popular activity on campus, but during EPIC it will be taken to another level.

“We’ll be giving away flat-screen televisions, $100 visa gift cards, $100 gas cards, and Blu-ray players,” Janowski said.

Widener Lecture Hall will also be host to the American Idol spin-off Cabrini Idol on Tuesday, April 13, at 8 p.m..

Other events that will occur throughout the remainder of the week include the Comedy Club which will host comedian Sheng Wang in the Mansion. Students will also be able to participate in an 18-person inflatable volleyball tournament on Inflatable Fun Day.

Phillies Day will conclude EPIC with Cabrini students venturing to Citizens Bank park to see the Phillies compete against the Florida Marlins.

Students looking for more information and tickets for all these events can visit the SEaL office.
