Middle States Self-Study Open Forum The first of two Middle States Self-study Open Forums will be held on Monday Oct. 20, 9:30–11 a.m. in the Widener Center Lecture Hall.
Please join the campus community for an open discussion of the Middle States Self-study draft which was distributed Sept. 26, 2014.
The goals of this decennial Self-study are to advance institutional self-understanding and self-improvement, and to demonstrate to the Middle States Commission on Higher Education that Cabrini College meets the Commission’s standards for reaccreditation.
The draft of the Self-study report is on reserve in the Holy Spirit Library and is also available electronically at http://cabrini.edu/iroa.

Be a Hero – Give Blood. On Nov. 3, 10 a.m.–3:45 p.m. in the Grace Hall Atrium, students, faculty, staff, and community members are invited to give blood at the annual Cabrini Blood Drive.
Blood cannot be replicated in a laboratory, so it must be donated by extraordinary people like you! Each donation potentially saves three lives.
Registration is required by Friday, Oct. 31. To register, visit www.redcrossblood.org, call Cabrini Health Services (610-902-8400), or visit the information table outside Cavs Corner the week of Oct. 27.
Zombie Run On Wednesday, Oct. 22, on the Turf Field, students are invited to participate in a Zombie Run.
Heats will start at 8:45, 9:05, and 9:25 p.m. Students will race an obstacle course around campus—but beware of the ZOMBIES that may be lurking around corners and follow you.
This free event is sponsored by CAP Board. For more information, contact Lisa Podolsky (610-902-8755, firstname.lastname@example.org).
