Before the first class starts, students at Cabrini College start learning together.
They read a selected text during the summer, reflect on how it connects to them, and prepare essays about the experience.
One student receives the First‑Year Student Writing Award, which recognizes the best Summer Reading essay response.
Sometimes, Cabrini students even get to meet the author! In previous years, authors such as John Shors, Wes Moore, Sonia Nazario, and Eboo Patel came to campus for Cabrini Day, presenting about their works and meeting with students.
Nobel-Prize–Winner Elie Wiesel visited Cabrini to deliver the keynote address for the Honors Convocation and receive an honorary doctorate.
