So, you’re sitting around and bored out of your mind.
There is nothing to do.
Most of your friends are going home and now you are really left alone.
There are many things to do around this area.
Philadelphia is just 30 minutes away and you are sitting around feeling sorry for yourself.
You can hop on the shuttle and get onto the train and go into Philadelphia. You can always take a walk down South Street and visit some of the most interesting shops.
If the city seems a little intimidating or you don’t want to venture down there by yourself, there are many movie theaters around Radnor and Wayne where you can catch a new release.
If shopping is your idea of a fun time, you are less than 10 minutes away from the second biggest mall in the nation.. There are numerous stores that could sell you just what you always needed. It has stores like Macy’s, the Gap, Abercrombie and Fitch, Structure, Express, Build-a-Bear, Starbucks and Nordstrom’s.
If you are one who likes to have a nice hot meal, other than the cafe that is, there are a great number of restaurants just waiting to seat you and some friends.
Places like Lone Star, Chili’s, TGI Friday’s, American Bandstand and John Harvard’s just to name a few.
Since Halloween is just around the corner there are a few places that offer haunted rides and trails.
The Bates Motel and Haunted Hayride is said to be “America’s Most Horrifying Motel” and has been rebuilt to add a new level of fear. It is located at the Arasapha Farm and only minutes from the campus. There are even certain nights that they have live bands.
Another Halloween treat that is not quite as close is Jason’s Woods in Lancaster. They offer hayrides, a carnival of fear and the Barn of Terror.
On certain dates they even have the real “Jason” from the movie “Friday the 13th.” They also have things for children to do and this year they are having a costume contest where someone will win $1000 in cash!
If you are without a vehicle and you miss the shuttle, there are many things you can still do while on campus.
There are numerous dances held on campus that can be a lot of fun, not only for the people that love to dance, but the people that love to socialize also.
Interested in sports?
Not all about the commitment of being on a team?
People who are interested in sports have the excitement of participating in the Intramural sports offered here at Cabrini. There are things such as flag football, volleyball, basketball, squash, swimming and ultimate frisbee.
Any questions about when the activities at Cabrini are held can be answered simply by calling the student activities office at x8407.
So don’t just sit there.
Get out and do something.
Take advantage of the area.
It really does have plenty to offer.
