Cabrini Homecoming 2017

After a very successful Class of ’66 special reunion during last year’s Homecoming Weekend, we’ve decided to recombine Alumni Weekend and Homecoming Weekend. We’re excited to bring back this tradition, which allows for all of our community members—alumni, student, parents, and friends—to celebrate together on Cabrini’s beautiful campus. It is the perfect time to restart the combined weekend, as we celebrate Cabrini’s 60th Anniversary!

In honor of this combined event, we’ve added new activities and events that will make the weekend of October 14, 2017 one to remember! We hope you’ll join us as we relive the past while embracing new traditions. 

Unless otherwise noted, all Cabrini community members (alumni, students, parents, and friends) are invited to the weekend events.

Please note, any event with a money symbol ($) next to the event title will have a ticket price associated with it. Please pre-register for every event you plan to attend.

Please click here to register by September 29, 2017.
