Family weekend is right around the corner giving the Cabrini College students, faculty, and administration the chance to share a small sampling of some of the delicacies that many have the chance to live amongst. This is achieved by having a wide variety of family-oriented activities, athletic events, interaction with faculty, staff, and administration, and a collaborative effort by all offices to represent who Cabrini College is and what Cabrini College has to offer.
Family Weekend, running October 3-5, 2003, begins late Friday afternoon with the Women’s tennis match vs. Rosemont College and doesn’t end until 5 p.m. on Sunday evening with a Blessing of the Animals. In between, it is a jam-packed weekend that will give people the feeling that Cabrini College is “Where the Magic Happens,” the underlying theme masquerading behind the weekend. Director of Student Activities Jason Bozzone feels that this year’s family weekend will exceed many of the expectations of family members and students. “I would say the following events will be a big hit and highly attended: ‘Pirates of the Caribbean will be shown in the Dixon Center swimming pool, Fairmount Park Mansion Tours, carriage rides in a real horse and buggy, and the President’s Royal Reception followed by the Enchantment Evening of Dinner and Dance,” said Bozzone.
The dinner requires the purchase of a $35 ticket for adults and a $20 ticket for children under the age of 12. The Nerney Field-house will be transformed into the “mystical realm of fairies, magic, and happily ever after,” including Cinderella’s 3-dimensional Pumpkin Carriage along with three trotting horses, embellished in full-head dress and saddle will also will be present. The evening includes dinner and dancing with a DJ making a soundtrack of the event with music to caterer the musical interests of all ages.
“I think it is already a success because of the collaboration we have gained with the campus-wide committee that was established,” said Bozzone. “The weekend of activities and events provides all ages to enjoy the magic Cabrini College has to offer.”
