After graduation she plans on finding a teaching position in elementary education. Her four years were beneficial and meaningful here at Cabrini giving her the experience she needs. “During my time here I have learned about others and myself. I have made wonderful friendships and the memories will last a life time,” Colleen said. “Cabrini is a school where you can strive to be the best person you can be, and that is what I have done.”

Megan Beaudy, elementary, special and early education major, has taken advantage of Cabrini’s small nature and has exceled academically.
