For the second year incoming freshman at Cabrini College got the opportunity to participate in a pre-orientation program called S3. This stands for service, spirituality and solidarity.
Last year during its pilot, 55 students participated. The class of 2013 had almost 100 students participate. The freshmen selected for the program arrived on campus Aug. 18 for the two day program.
During the S3 program the students were separated into 7 different groups and each group had a different life situation that they had to figure out how to deal with. They also visited an agency in Norristown to learn about the service that they were going to do. The day after their learning experience they worked hands on with a service project in Norristown.
