Values on campus

Last year I remember a certain letter to the editor questioning the values of students on campus. Calling the quality of what we right “hedonistic,” wanting us to challenge our current values of “no one is going to tell me what to do, I want, what I want, when I want.” True this maybe the view of many students at Cabrini but then again, look at what we do as a community here at Cabrini.

When you first enter Cabrini as a freshman, the first Monday of the school year is your day of service. You go and volunteer at several places in the Philadelphia area. Groups of Cabrini freshmen go out in buses and vans to these places and give there time to help out. Still think there are no Christians on campus?

Then again during junior year in your Seminar 300 class you once again go out to volunteer for an entire semester not just for a day. Being a member of the Loquitur I took offense to this letter to the editor.

Everyone tells you college is the best years of your life. I agree with that and feel that every student tries to make the best of their college experiences. I guess that’s where the “No one is going to tell me what to do, I want what I want when I want it.”

Now, what’s wrong with this concept, it is our life. We are adults; the decisions we make now will affect us and we know this already. So, if there are students who want to think about themselves and only themselves more power to them. If you don’t look out for yourself no one else will and we know this.

So this is a Catholic orientated college and all that means is we are not allowed to hand out condoms or any other birth control method on campus. If you honestly believe that students on this campus are holding on to their virginities and keeping themselves pure until marriage, then you haven’t been living in the same world as I have.

Our parents, who lived in a time that the laws of Catholicism were followed, are now filing for divorce. Don’t expect us to make up for their mistakes. All I can say is were young and believe it or not we have morals and values. We are not all hedonist.
