Commuters have new developments to look forward to at Cabrini College. Unlike the commuter club that used to exist, there is now a commuter program for Cabrini’s non-residential students. There will still be the commuter lockers, and lunch time movies, but look forward to seeing more events for the commuting students of Cabrini College.
The biggest news of this new program is that a new meal plan exists for the commuter students of Cabrini College. According to the Cabrini College Dining Services website, commuter students are now eligible for the 10-meal plan. The 10-meal plan consists of 10 meals during the week and $200 in flex dollars. This option provides commuter students with more of a choice in where to eat, however not all students agree with this new opportunity. Narmina Azizova, a senior commuter, said, “The meal plans for commuters are a little pricey.”
Also, commuter students can now sign up for the mailing list designed specifically for commuters. Amy Hecht, who is returning for her second year to the Office of Student Activities, has set up a list serve to inform commuter students of upcoming events and news. To sign up for this list serve go to Cabrini’s homepage, click on student life, then services, then mailing list and then commuter students.
Other news in the commuter program is that there is now a car pool program that students can sign up for to save gas when getting to and from campus. If you are interested you can post your contact information on the commuter board located on the second floor of the Widener Center. In addition to these new features, there have been plans to make a lounge specifically for commuter students.
One of the most recent events resulting from the new commuter program was “Commuter Appreciation Day.” On Sept. 15, 2004 “Commuter Appreciation Day” took place in Grace Hall from 11a.m. to 2 p.m. Free pizza and cookies were out for commuters under the red streamers hanging from the ceiling. Many students were seen wearing the fashionable “I Love Commuters” t-shirts modeled after the ever-popular “I Love New York” tees. In addition, there were free massages available.
Look for more events especially designed for commuters. If you have questions or comments you can stop by the Office of Student Activities or email the commuter program at firstname.lastname@example.org.
