Looking for a court

Exercise is an important activity in which everyone should participate. One of the ways I get my daily exercise is by playing basketball. Last week some friends and I decided to drive to the Dixon Center in an attempt to play a few pick-up games of basketball. To our dismay we were turned away by a high school girls basketball team.

Surprisingly, this was not the first time that we had been told/asked to leave the basketball court within the Dixon center. What are my friends and I suppose to do if we want to use the basketball courts in the Dixon center? Where can we go to play basketball, if we cannot use the courts in the Dixon center?

Do we not pay for tuition? Does our tuition money not allow us the use of the basketball court? I can certainly understand the use of the courts by the Cabrini sports teams, but high school teams.

It is very disturbing to know that Cabrini College oversees its students and favors high school students when it comes to using the basketball courts in the Dixon center.

My friends and I have to find other locations to play basketball due to the use of the courts by various schools other than Cabrini.

Basically what I am trying to say, is that we would like one set place in which we could play on campus. We feel that we should be afforded the opportunity of playing basketball somewhere on Cabrini’s premises. I mean we do pay tuition to attend this institution.
