On all college campuses student activities play a key role to campus life. Student activities department is the base for all the activities that take place on the college campus. The department helps with clubs and planning activities, which Cabrini College feels, are essential in the development of their students, making more rounded people.
Since the beginning of the year we did not have an official student activities coordinator. The Student activities department was being overseen by David Carpenter, director of residence life and Patricia Arnold, resident director / new resident hall.
After searching long and hard, they came across the perfect replacement for the former Student activity coordinator Bridget Baxter. Mary Beth Horvath, graduate from Dickinson College with a Bachelors degree in Music and Environmental studies. She then attended Syracuse University where she earned her masters in Higher education. Mary Beth officially started September 24, 2001 as Cabrini College’s Student Activities Coordinator. After a year of training as Student Activities coordinator at Virginia Commonwealth University she is ready to exceed the expectations of her duties as Student activities coordinator. Although you probably have not seen her face around campus yet, Mary Beth plans on getting involved with the students as much as possible.
As of right now, Mary Beth’s main focus is on weekend programming. She hopes to have an event every weekend to make sure there is something for the students here at Cabrini to get involved in. Mary Beth also wishes to have permanent monthly schedules for activities taking place during the week, so the students have something to look forward to. She hopes to get as many students involved from the college, which will open new doors of opportunity to meet new people for everyone.
Mary Beth is available to meet with students who are interested in planning or participating in campus activities. She is open to suggestions and ideas. Feel free to contact her about any questions involving campus activities at (610) 902-8407, or stop in at her office, which is located on the second floor of the Widener center in the Student Life Center.
