Cabrini Throughout the Seasons

Posted on 6/3/2020 2:12:00 PM by Brenna Walters

There are so many fun things to do throughout the year at Cabrini. I have listed some of my favorite and most popular activities for each season! Fall is my favorite season at Cabrini as far as activities go!


Homecoming Festival:

The weekend of homecoming includes a homecoming festival! This includes free t-shirts, food trucks, games, italian ice, and sometimes even a mechanical shark!

Food trucks, Games, Prizes, and all kinds of fun leading up to Homecoming!

Freak Week: 

Freak Week is a full week of fun events and activities all week leading up to halloween! Included in these events is the Haunted Mansion, where you walk throughout the mansion and see your Cabrini peers in costume to scare you, who knows when you'll see them!

Another event is the Ghost Hunters, who this past year went through The Mansion to see if they could find any ghosts, you'll have to go to see what happens! Maybe the Mansion really is haunted...

Halloween Havoc is another exciting event during Freak Week! Put on your costume and have fun playing games and competing against your fellow Cavaliers!

Come in your best costume, play games, and win prizes!!

Teams compete to win different games, and of course entertain the crowd.

Among all of these fun events in the Dixon Center, there are also games for field hockey, soccer, and volleyball as well as swim meets!

If you want to go off campus, there are several opportunities to get discounted tickets to go see the Philadephia Flyers play.


One of my favorite parts of winter, as cliche as it sounds, is when it snows at Cabrini. The campus is beautiful with buildings accented with snow.


As far as activities go, there are chances for students to get discounted tickets for 76ers games throughout the basketball season! If you're not a sixers fan, or you'd rather stay on campus... you can go support your fellow Cavaliers while cheering on our Cabrini Basketball and Swim teams!

Live Nativity:

Closer to Christmas, there is the annual Live Nativity that is presented that includes readings and carols to spark the Christmas Spirit. Come watch your fellow cavaliers act out the scenes of Christmas and the birth of Jesus Christ.

One of my favorite parts of the spring is the Spring Formal! It is always interesting to see what the theme of the night will be! Spring Formal in 2019 was throwback-themed with music from different decades and fun decor and photobooth! In 2020, the planned theme was Las Vegas, however we had to leave school due to COVID-19 before being able to go!

Cabrini Night at the Phillies:

A fun night out in the spring is Cabrini night at The Phillies! Support the Phillies MLB team with your friends and Cabrini peers!A fun night at a Phillies game with Cabrini friends and t-shirts to remember the night!!

Did I mention t-shirts?!

If you want to cheer on your Cabrini teams, the Spring season includes Lacrosse, baseball, and softball games in addition to swimming meets and tennis matches! Our men's lacrosse team were National Champions in 2019!

Cav-a-thon is another huge event at Cabrini University. Dance the night away to raise money for pediatric cancer, speciafically to donate to the Children's Hospital of Philadephia (CHOP).

Among all of the seasons at Cabrini University, there are so many fun activities and events to participate in! I have described some of my favorites, ones that I have participated in, and some of our popular events. However, there are so many additiaonl great events and activities going on throughout the seasons at Cabrini, so get involved and have fun! (Sometimes free t-shirts are even involved!)
