In celebration of Spirit Week, the Cabrini College community gets ready to participate in events and traditions. This year the celebration and honorary week will be held on Nov. 5-12. The mission of Spirit Week is to dedicate appreciation to Cabrini heritage and Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini.
Some activities planned for the 2010 celebration include a student gala and the annual Cabrini Spirit Staff ceremony. The organized events are geared for students and faculty to engage in learning experiences together.
On Friday, Nov. 5 from 8 p.m. to 12 a.m. in the Mansion, students will gather for a night of dancing and fun. The Black and White Gala is the must go-to event of the year. Tickets are available in the SEaL office for $10 a piece for Cabrini students and $15 for outside guests. Dress in the coordinating colors, and close the fall semester with a night to remember.
On Monday, Nov. 8 at 4:30 p.m. in the Wolfington Center, a student information session will be held for a spring break trip. Under the coordination of Student Ministry, a trip to New York is available to those interested in taking the journey entitled “Walking in the Footsteps of St. Frances Cabrini.”
A featured presentation by author Wes Moore will be given on Tuesday, Nov. 9 at 6:30 p.m. Moore is the author of “The Other Wes Moore; One Name and Two Fates,” which was required summer reading for all freshmen.
Wednesday, Nov. 10 at 8 p.m. is the Mr. and Miss Cabrini pageant in Grace Hall. Students from all different extra-curricular activities are nominated into the pageant. Certainly a crowd pleaser and a yearly favorite, contestants will participate in a talent and question portion, just like the real deal.
