Professors at Cabrini College do everything they can to help students succeed. There are plenty of resources, such as the library, writing center, and math resource center, available to students all the time. The campus is fairly small so students don't have a long walk from class to class.
Tips for prospective students
Take full advantage of the resource centers. There is always somebody available to help in almost every subject. Everyone on this campus wants to see you succeed.
Academic Rigor
Students are very active in classroom discussions and many classes require community service or internships so students can take what they learn into the world.
Dorm Life
Although you can hear your neighbors through the walls, Cabrini staff did a wonderful job assigning roommates. As incoming students you can either choose your roommate or fill out a questionnaire and the school will find your best match.
Food and Dining
The food is usually the same foods we have every day but there are many different stations at the all you can eat buffet so you can change what you eat every day.
What to do for fun
Cabrini always has fun trips planned for students. There is also a shuttle bus that will drive you to the mall and a park within walking distance of the school.
Clubs and Activities
Cabrini College has over fifty active clubs for students to get involved in and many sports teams. Cabrini staff definitely encourages students to get involved in these sports and clubs because it is a great way to meet friends and people who can help you succeed.
Campus Safety
Cabrini's public safety office is available to students 24/7. Although there is no reason to feel unsafe on the campus, if you call public safety they will make sure you get to your destination safely. There are post's randomly throughout campus where you can push a button and it will call public safety for you and one of the workers will come help you right away.

I intend to be a student living off campus. The school is a catholic school and that suits me perfectly because, I am very religious and put the spiritual world high on my list of honors with gods and goddesses in mind. I think my priorities are in order at Cabrini and the education there, I have heard, is only a definite plus especially with military in mind.
Tips for prospective students
I think those who intend to join Cabrini as students should expect the best and should be ready to put forth their best. There is a peaceful community area and family like atmosphere like home speaking for the staff and student body there. Put god first and all things shall follow. Come there with your all and all, then you shall succeed
Academic Rigor
to be or not to be? Do you want to get an education or no not? The school isn't the highest like prep schools but it isn't, at all, an in the dumps school either. Cabrini has a lot to offer and a good reputation from all I have heard. From my visit I gathered that same; I can believe in Cabrini to be a challenge but not overbearing. The rating is definitely an A, five star.

I rate Cabrini with an A. That would be a five star.

Dorm Life
I rate dorm life with an A also but I think that is for the young people. I intend to live in non-dorm housing. Dorm life rating is a five star.
Food and Dining
I rate the meals with an A.
Clubs and Activities
I think the clubs and activities gets an A.
Campus Safety
Campus safety gets four star. Maybe I an am too military minded however I think there are a lot of freaks out there and the crime in these years has risen.

Cabrini College is a beautiful college with a lot of opportunities.
Tips for prospective students
Cabrini College
D miss out on any fun activities, and spend your time wisely! No matter what do not miss classes, it'll effect you severely in the future!!
Academic Rigor
The classes are all of normal difficulty. If you pay attention, go to class, and do the required coursework you will pass the class with a good grade.
Dorm Life
The dorm life is very nice. I have lived in West and the apartments so far and West was my favorite so far. West had bathrooms inside the rooms as compared to Woodcrest which had hallway bathrooms.
Food and Dining
There are many options available on campus. You can go to Cav's Corner, Jazzman's, Sandella's, or The RAC. Cav's Corner is a cafeteria and serves food buffet style. Jazzman's and Sandella's are both quick service food places that offer anything from salad to quesadillas. The RAC is a late night food place that serves anything from pizza to chicken cheesesteaks.
What to do for fun
The King of Prussia Mall is located approximately 5 minutes away from the campus. There is a shuttle that will come pick you up outside of Founder's Hall and take you to either the mall or Walmart. It is very handy for those students that cannot drive.
Bang for the buck
I agree that Cabrini is well worth the money. You get a small class room environment, and all of the professors make an effort to help each student personally. I have never went through trouble trying to get ahold of a professor. They are all so friendly and willing to do what they can for you.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
The RAC Grille is a late night dining option available on campus. The RAC offers everything from pizza to chicken cheese steaks. They also have soda, milkshakes, red bull, and candy! I go there almost every night.
Great for these types of students
General education, Special education, Graphic Design, Psychology, Criminology, and many other majors! This college excels in almost every aspect.
Clubs and Activities
There are numerous amounts of clubs available at Cabrini College. Be sure to join clubs and get involved!
Greek Life
There is a sorority on campus.
Campus Safety
The campus is extremely safe. Public safety is always patrolling the campus and there are emergency buttons you can press if you are in danger.

Cabrini College is truly an amazing college; it allows students to discover a broad spectrum of disciplines while staying true to the college's main theme: Social Justice. From the professors to the staff to the students, I have never been displeased with anyone on Cabrini's campus. An amazing school, it is worth looking into.
Tips for prospective students
GET INVOLVED! Cabrini offers many activities and clubs, most of which offer leadership training and positions. While getting involved at Cabrini, it opens the doors to many new opportunities and also connects you closely with Mother Frances Cabrini, the college's namesake.
Academic Rigor
You can take many different classes that challenge your mind! Not your typical history and language classes but rather History of Art and Protest, a class in which you learn everything there is to know about protesting, and Don Quixote, a class where you can examine the novel and look at it from all ends, specifically the view of a Spanish person.
Dorm Life
Dorm life is pretty great, there is air conditioning in almost every building and the way the layout of the buildings are set up causes you to make friends.
Food and Dining
Like every college's cafeteria, it takes a little time to adjust to the different cooking than you are used to. Cabrini's dining halls are excellent! The staff in here are probably the friendliest people you will meet and make sure they stop and have a conversation with you. The food, too, is incredible! Once a week there is a different theme for the night, some being: Spanish night, Middle Eastern night, A Taste of China, and so on!

If you are looking for a small, close knit school Cabrini is perfect. It is close to the city with the security of the suburbs. With the connections that I make here, I know that I will be successful in life.
Tips for prospective students
Get involved in clubs, activities, and sports. Extracurriculars are very popular and they are a great way to make friends.
Academic Rigor
Since it is a small campus, the professors provide a one-on-one experience that allow you to get the most out of your education.
Dorm Life
For freshmen, East Residence and Xavier are the nicest dorms and Woodcrest isn't as nice as them. East houses the freshmen and some sophomores. Xavier and Woodcrest house only freshmen and the people who stay in there normally are very close with each other.
Food and Dining
Jazzman's and Sandella's are great for quick meals between classes. The cafeteria is a hit or miss some nights but you can always get a sandwich or make a salad. Also for late night snacking you can go to the on campus RAC grille.
What to do for fun
You can take the shuttle to the mall or the 10 minute walk into Wayne. In Wayne on Lancaster Ave, you can find a great place to eat, shop, or see a movie.
Clubs and Activities
Clubs and activities are a huge part of this campus' daily life.
Greek Life
We have one fraternity and one sorority.
Campus Safety
It is a gated campus and public safety is constantly doing rounds.

Tips for prospective students
In college you have a lot more free time than you would think. They key to getting good grades and getting ahead is to use that free time wisely. First get your homework and studying done and then get active and join clubs!
Academic Rigor
To academically succeed in college, studies and homework must come first! Divide your time wisely and you will be able to get everything done with less stress of worrying about it later. Whatever you choose to do with your time, you should not miss class! It will eventually reflect poorly on your grades in the end!
Dorm Life
The dorm life is a wonderful experience for students to interact with one another. It's also the best way to get the full college experience because you will be on your own. You are able to take care of your own responsibilities which allows you to grow up maturely
Food and Dining
Cabrini College offers residents a meal plan of 19 meals a week and 100 flex dollars. (3 meals during week days, 2 during weekends and 100 school dollars) They also have a 14 meal plan and 200 flex dollars. (2 meals a week day, 2 on weekends and 200 school dollars.) Cabrini also has 3 different cafes that you can eat from and one of them is open until 1130 at night!
What to do for fun
Cabrini is a small campus so there is always something to do! There is a gym that is open until 11pm every night for those who like work out and get in shape. There is always a basketball game, softball, soccer and field hockey game going on to enjoy!
Great for these types of students
Psychology Majors, Graphic Design, Biology, Criminology, Sociology, Special Education, English and Communications.
Clubs and Activities
Cabrini offers a ton of clubs and activities to partake in. They have a school team for most all sports (except football) and they even have intramural teams. The intramural teams are more of like a club sport where people play just for fun.
Campus Safety
Cabrini College has a safety team called public safety. Public safety officers sit at the front desk of dorm buildings at 10 o'clock pm and sign in people that go in and out of the building until 6 am to ensure safety to the residences. Every hr-2 hrs a public safety officer walks around the entire building doing rounds and making sure everything is the way it should be. Cabrini even has a shuttle that takes students to King of Prussia mall, Wal-mart and the train stations. This shuttle is driven by certified public safety officers.

Am learning a lot
Not only am I learning in the classroom, but I am learning to deal with real-life issues around campus and the local area.
Am enjoying being here
I couldn't imagine being at any other school-the small school environment is perfect for me, but not everyone.
Bang for the buck
The food could be better, everyone will agree! But for all the money, it is well-worth it.
Tips for prospective students
Don't come to Cabrini expecting a big-time university experience! Cabrini is it's own experience in a small-college environment. Personally, I love it, but it's not for everyone.
Great for these types of students
Great school for anyone who needs that personal attention from every professor. Class sizes are small, so you are able to make a connection with each professor, you aren't just a number.
