As a freshman last year, Tricia Stocker felt that she spent the majority of her first semester at Cabrini College getting adjusted to her new surroundings. She focused solely on keeping up with her academics and in turn felt that she was missing out on being a part of campus activities.
The end of her first semester at Cabrini, Stocker was asked by a faculty member what campus activities she was involved in. Feeling particularly uninvolved on campus, she expressed that she felt she that she had missed her chance to join any campus organizations.
Stocker’s words may have made an impact.
Until the spring semester last year, Cabrini only held an involvement fair during the fall semester of each year. This year, however, Cabrini held its second spring involvement fair on Wednesday, Jan. 27 in the Grace Hall Atrium. From 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., dozens of campus groups set up in Grace Hall to share information about joining a multitude of activities happening across campus.
WYBF Cavalier Radio, Student Government Association, Campus Ministry, CAP Board and the center for Student Engagement And Leadership were just a few organizations that took part in the event. With tables stretching through the atrium and representative members at each students were welcomed and encouraged to seek information about the organizations.
For those who felt uninvolved around campus, this event offered a second chance to become a bigger part of the Cabrini community. For those who were already involved, this event offered the opportunity to encourage other students to become a greater part of the Cabrini community.
Stocker said, “I guess what I was trying to do was give more people opportunities to
get involved the second half of the year because the beginning of the year is just a crazy time for everyone, especially freshmen.”
