1. Cabrini Athletes Find New Opportunities

by Mia Messina, The (St. Joseph’s) Hawk

Softball player Shauna Stotler ’25 woke up to many missed texts and a link to an article. Cross country runner Jeff Issac ’25 found out in the summer after a semester of working to start a men’s volleyball program. Swimmer and cross country runner Adriana Pietrewicz ’25 first heard it in a rumor she hoped was not true. Two weeks later, it was confirmed: Cabrini University was closing. Their athletic careers were now in jeopardy.

Students received an email from the school later in the day informing them of what they had already learned online.

On June 23, Villanova University and Cabrini University issued a statement that Cabrini University would be closing its doors as an institution following the 2023-24 school year. The two schools have a tentative agreement for Villanova to purchase the campus and work to continue carrying out Cabrini’s mission there.”
