After four years of being a student and an athlete, senior year has arrived for basketball player Gary Goldman and it’s time to say goodbye to so many of the friends and teammates who have become such a part of life that they’re almost like family. For Goldman the long journey is almost over and the best part of being on the team for all these years has been winning championships with people he considers a big family.
Originally from Cinnaminson, N.J., Goldman has one older brother and one younger brother. His number 11 on the court can be seen in the guard and forward positions. He stays true to the Philadelphia sports fan when he said that if he were to play for any professional sports team it would have to be the Sixers.
For the first three years of his time spent at Cabrini, Goldman lived on campus, but this year he decided to move off campus with four of his friends from the team and a few other people. He said that he enjoys off-campus life better than being a resident, but he continues to stay active with the school and the team.
Goldman is a business administration major and is not really sure what he wants to do after graduation. All that will come in time, but right now he is doing a co-op with an insurance company called US Liabilities. Like many people Goldman is excited about graduation, but anxious about what the future holds.
Even though graduation is a time to say goodbye to friends and a life you lived for four years, you don’t have to say goodbye to everyone. “I think I will keep in touch with a lot of people,” Goldman said. “I have a lot of good friends at Cabrini.”
One of these friends, junior Heather Buonacuore, had something to say. “He is so much fun to be around and he made my college years here so much fun. I don’t know what I am going to do without him next year. But I love him and wish him the best after graduation.”
