Hillary Hoch Chybinski knew as a freshman in high school that she was going to be a Cabrini College student. Chybinski is a 1990 graduate of Cabrini and is currently working at Sungard as a senior internal auditor. She is married and has one son, Ryan.
She became aware of the campus when she attended the annual alumni weekend with her mother, Nina Tantogna Hamlyn, a 1962 graduate. It was then that she immediately fell in love with the campus.
“The campus was so beautiful and everyone was extremely nice. I pretty much knew that Cabrini was going to be the college I attended in the future,” Chybinski said.
She majored in accounting during her four years and minored in human resources management. Chybinski was a student ambassador involved with Capa Sigma Omega.
Besides giving campus tours, she participated in the Accounting Association and the Irish Minstrel.
As a resident, she lived in Woodcrest, Grace Hall and houses seven and five. It was not unusual for an upperclassman to live in house five, because at the time there was not an apartment complex to house seniors. In addition, house seven changed to an all male residence after her junior year.
She regrets never having the chance to stay in Xavier, which, at the time, was the newest building on campus. The dorm was only for men.
“I remember all the girls were jealous because the boys got the new, clean and pretty dorm and we were all stuck in Woodcrest,” Chybinski said.
She is currently involved with Cabrini by being a member of the Alumni Board of Directors. She is also her class agent. Some people may even recognize her from the several talks she has done for Ann Servey’s classes.
“When I look back at Cabrini, I remember the Mansion the most. I was never a resident there but that is most memorable,” Chybinski said.
