Midnight Madness strikes again

Midnight Madness is fast approaching and the anticipation can be felt throughout Cabrini College. As one of the most exciting and entertaining nights on the college’s calendar, Midnight Madness is the kick-off to the basketball season countrywide. With a host of events and activities that changes with each passing year, this year’s rendition on the 29th of this month is sure to delight all of the Cavalier faithful.

Since basketball is one of the most popular sports at Cabrini, it is obvious that the Dixon Center will have its hands full with the influx of students for the event. Assistant Athletic Director Jeff Falardeau is the man in charge of the festivities this year, and he thinks this year will be a great time for everyone,

“We are extremely excited for this year’s Midnight Madness. We have implemented plenty of activities for our student community, and it will be interesting to see what type of attendance we will receive on Saturday night. There has been a big push for more late night & weekend programming, so we are optimistic the campus community will come out and support our teams.”

The night boasts a chocker-blocked lineup full of activities from its beginning at 10 p.m., with the student/faculty basketball game to the finale by the dance team leading up until midnight. There is even an hour of “Midnight Munchies” preceding the event for those puckish Cav heads out there.

Allison Sachs, a junior business administration major, considers Midnight Madness one of the best nights during the school year.

“I love Midnight Madness! I really like watching the basketball team play, and it’s basically the first chance we all get. It’s also cool because I get to spend time with all my friends and it’s really funny to see the faculty play some of the team and other students,” Sachs said.

Allison’s excitement is shared by the majority of the upper-classman here at Cabrini, but for the freshman here on campus, it’s a totally new experience.

“It’s going to be something new for me because we didn’t have them in high school. I love basketball, and it’s going to be fun to have everyone there to cheer on the team as they start their season. Also, everyone will be there, instead of going home which is what I’m really looking forward to,” Jennifer Campbell, an English and communication major, said. She seems to have the opinion of the freshman nailed down. Being it is their first one, obviously, their anticipation is very high.

Many of Cabrini College’s faithful have their calendars circled for Oct. 29, and for good reason. This year’s Midnight Madness is shaping up to be an excellent time for everyone involved, and with the excitement level this high, it should be lots of fun.
