The weekend of Sept. 25 to 27 will bring endless activities to Cabrini’s campus. Family weekend, also known as homecoming weekend, is a Cabrini tradition that many look forward to. It is a time where students and their relatives, Cabrini employees and alumni flock to Cabrini to celebrate and engage in activities with both family and friends. “Homecoming and Family Weekend is an opportunity to reunite with your family and do things that you would not usually do on a normal weekend,” Rachael Mazzante, sophomore pre-nursing major, said.
With continuous activities, which will be hosted all weekend long, there will be something that appeals to everyone’s interests. No matter one’s age, it is guaranteed anyone will find an enjoyable activity. Best of all, most activities are free.
“It is a great weekend that brings the Cabrini campus together. There are tons of events going on all weekend and I am extremely excited,” Anne Filippone, Director of student engagement and leadership, said.
Homecoming weekend will open up with an alumni lacrosse game on Friday, Sept. 25 at 6 p.m. It will be followed with an ice-cream social and movie night featuring Disney’s “Up” in the Widener Lecture Hall.
On Saturday, Sept. 26 Cabrini College will become packed with Cabrini students and alumni for one of Cabrini’s most eventful days of the year from10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
“I had a soccer game that day last year and I remember how great it was having all the teammates’ parents come out for tailgating and other fun activities. I would highly recommend that incoming freshmen become involved in homecoming weekend with their families. In two words I would describe homecoming weekend as endless excitement,” Samuel Webb, sophomore business administration major, said.
Saturday will start off with a women’s volleyball match in the Dixon Center at 10 a.m. Throughout the day, there will also be a women’s soccer match at 12:30 p.m. and field hockey game at 3 p.m.
For others, especially those with young children, there are endless activities that will appeal to them as well. Such events will include a campus picnic on the Commons where the Greater Kensington String Band of the Mummers Parade will be performing: interactive activities, which will include caricaturists, big chair photos, and a magician, and a clue mystery dinner theatre in Cabrini’s “haunted” mansion. Make sure to register for the clue mystery dinner since registration is required. Tickets costs $10.
Family weekend will wind down Sunday, Sept. 27. The day will begin with Mass at 11:00 a.m. in Cabrini’s Bruckmann Chapel and will be followed with brunch in The Marketplace of Founders Hall.
Everyone is invited to wrap up the weekend with a kite festival that will include a moon bounce, arts and crafts, face painting and kite flying on Cabrini’s Upper Athletic Field.
Do not miss out on a memorable fall weekend at Cabrini College.
