Building a Legacy

The athletic program at Cabrini College is made up of outstanding student-athletes dedicated to the Blue and White and has continuously improved over the years, becoming more skilled and stronger each season. More students recognize the physical and mental benefits of exercise in all forms along with faculty, staff and community members who also strive to maintain physical wellness. The Athletic & Recreation Pavilion will feature new equipment and the space necessary for all to be better served.

The Cavaliers have won 26 of 52 possible President's Cups, claimed 95 championship titles and inducted 30 alumni and supporters into Cabrini's Athletic Hall of Fame since the athletic program joined the CSAC/PAC in 1993-1994. The timeline below shows how far we've come from first securing the charter for Cabrini College to the opening of the Dixon Center and how we've grown to accommodate and challenge aspiring student-athletes along the way.
