A Few Words From Us....
the past year we have learned a lot about ourselves, our former classmates, the
entire alumni network and our alma mater. To be honest, except for the behavior
of the College's administration and officials, all of our experiences have been
positive and have reaffirmed our decision all those years ago to matriculate to
Cabrini College. The spirit of Sister Ursula and Mother Cabrini live on in all
of us, something we proved over these recent events.
opinion, Cabrini has always been about the people. That is what made our time
there so special, not the buildings and Presidents, but you and I, the faculty
and staff. We can't begin to count the number of correspondence we received
from alumni - non-athletic alumni - who helped our cause because in their words
"this is what Cabrini is about," and we agree with them wholeheartedly.
past, this website and our efforts went out of its way to highlight the
negative of the College's decision not to renew John Dzik's contract as well as
other decisions that in our opinion were made not in the best interests of
Cabrini College, its students and employees, but in order to fabricate a legacy
for the President, which should be earned, not bought at the expense of others.
(Sorry could not resist one last commentary).
want to look and build towards the future of Cabrini and its eventual new
President and regime. Remember, the current administration and decision makers
at Cabrini are just pedestrians and hired guns, walking through and collecting
a paycheck to do a job, unlike you and I who are alumni and will be involved in
the College long after these people have left. We will determine the College's
legacy, not these people.
end, in the next couple of months we will be launching a new website for all
alumni and employees of Cabrini College that will serve to hold us together
while we remain separated from the current Cabrini College and its leadership .
We will have guest commentary and columns from current and former faculty,
staff and students. We will build an alumni job network and we will hold alumni
events. We will also create a chat room and database for alumni to reconnect.
In short, we will create our own alumni association that will give those who do
not agree with the College's decisions at this time a place to communicate .
question you might be asking yourself is Why? Well, we feel that there is a
need for us to stick together. Together we have a voice, and there is no reason
why we cannot use it to continue to promote and advocate what we feel is the
real legacy of Cabrini College. We want to continue to hold events and
gatherings where people can stay in touch. We do not want to collect or ask for
any money, we simply want to perform a task that Cabrini College has failed to
perform. We want the focus to be on the people, which is where it belongs. The
administration would like the alumni to simply keep writing the checks but not
to have a voice..... we need to continue to remind them that this is not the
case. They might have won a battle by getting rid of Coach, but they will not
win the war. They'd like us to simply go away........ we want to remain the
voice of reason for the Cabrini College community.
participation and interest will dictate the life of this endeavor - the more of
you who wish to be involved, the greater chances of our success. Please note,
our efforts are not just for basketball or athletic alumni, but anyone who has
ever taken classes, received a degree or worked at Cabrini College - our
we all have an opportunity to wield the power that is ours and affect real
change in the College and prepare for the next President, to assure this type
of era never again exists at our beloved alma mater.
last item before we leave all of you for now, thank you for all your help and
support over these past months. Your efforts and letters made such an impact
that the website turned into an impressive resume and testimonial for Coach
Dzik, and in the end he was only out of work for 30 days. Great Job!
tuned for changes to this site over the next month or so.
