Security is terrible and really not existent. Counseling services does bare minimum. Dorms are horrible. RA's do ZERO. Campus is dark at night. Heavy Muslim population. Scary to walk at night. Little if any access to off campus ammenities

Christian - 03/12/2020

At first I thought I wasn't going like being here, but my attitude has really changed. I have made new friends and the campus is not real huge that I can get lost; just going to classes. The professor try there best to help student as much as they can. Cabrini has so many resources to help you achieve!

Rosbeiris - 01/14/2020

Cabrini is a school filled with positive energy and a school with a calming aura. The school is known for being Catholic and holding a reputation of being the best at anything they set their minds to. The staff, students, are always there for you whenever you need them. It is one of those schools that you find yourself feeling comfortable wherever you go. The class sizes are appropriate to the point that you find yourself knowing the students, and the professors fairly well.

Jacob - 08/05/2019

I think it's a fantastic school. It's a small, private area that definitely is not a party school. It's no Ivy League, but it's inexpensive and provides a great education for the price. All around very good choice for post education. While I am only a visitor, this is definitely one of my most locked in schools yet.

    Get involved! The best way to stay in school is to get involved and not to go home on the weekends. Get involved with something you feel comfortable with and a group of people that interest you. You can have your dorm friends (your social life) and an education, career life. They are two very different things.

  10. What is your overall opinion of this school?

    Cabrini is a small school right off the main line. It's a small, close-knit campus, where everyone knows everyone else. Our new president cares about the students and tries to partake in activities with them on a regular basis. Opportunities are endless at Cabrini; whether it's starting a club/sport you would like to see on campus or holding an event for people to be aware of a new cause. I feel that professors actually care and want you to succeed. You're known as a name and a face, not as a number.

  11. What are the academics like at your school?

    At Cabrini, class sizes are very small with only 15 to 20 students per class. You are one-on-one time with professors and are able to get to know them beyond a professional, academic level. Professors strive for you to succeed and most will go out of their way to help you (even giving their home/cell numbers so you can call them anytime!).

  12. What are the most popular student activities/groups?

    There is soooo much to do both on campus and off campus. We are 5 minutes from the train station that takes you into the city. We are also just a couple of minutes from Wayne which is a cute little shopping district with your cafes and small places to eat along the way. There are many trips and study abroad options both during the semester and over breaks. There are no fraternities or sororities on Cabrini's campus. There are many campus activities both during the week and on the weekends. There is bingo a couple of times a month and they give away prizes such as digital cameras, gift cards, PS2 and ipods. There is casino night once in a while and they do take trips to different place like Broadway to see a show. A lot of the activities are free but some like the Broadway trip do come with a little price. Never too much though that students can't afford it.
