First Year Experience

In May and June, incoming students and their families come to campus, develop a sense of community, learn more about Cabrini, and make new friends during Summer Orientation.

During the summer, all the incoming students start learning together in the Summer Reading Program, students read a selected text and reflect on how it connects to them in essays. Sometimes, they even get to meet the author!

Leading up to the first day of classes, New Student Orientation helps new students and their families transition to life at Cabrini.

Welcoming Mass and the Matriculation ceremony formally welcome the next class of students.

During their first year at Cabrini, students in Living and Learning Communities (LLCs) get the opportunity to live and study together, exploring a specific theme.

First-Year Advising is tied to a student’s College Success Seminar (College 101) and continues throughout the academic year. The Engagement with the Common Good series continues for four years.

Partnering with Parents workshops are offered throughout the academic year.
