The first year of college is a time of great transition. CAVenutre, a Pre-Orientation experience with Cabrini’s Campus Ministry, helps ease this transition by welcoming and engaging students when they first arrive at Cabrini College.
Students will be introduced to the core values of Cabrini College and have a chance to experience them through an overnight ropes course retreat at Black Rock Retreat (www.blackrockretreat.com).
Bond with your peers, learn from student leaders, pray and reflect together, and have fun, all while experiencing Cabrini’s core values of respect, vision, community, and a dedication to excellence.
After finishing the overnight ropes course retreat, students are strongly encouraged to attend monthly follow-up check-ins with the student leaders and Campus Ministry staff.
