Cabrini College senior Dana Berardi spent her fall semester living and working in Washington D.C. as part of the White House internship program. The Political Science, History and American Studies major was an intern in the Office of Scheduling and Advance, which supports the President in his meetings, events and appearances.

A new clay tile roof is almost completed on the mansion of the Radnor campus.
Cabrini College is in the process of replacing the roof of The Mansion, formerly the Woodcrest Mansion, which is the centerpiece of its Radnor campus that was designed by famed Philadelphia architect Horace Trumbauer.

Twenty-five-year-old asphalt shingles needed to be replaced, and the school chose to replace them with clay tiles, said Howard Holden, director of facilities at Cabrini. "We felt it deserved the best roof system we could install," said Holden, who added that the original roofing material may have been slate. About a decade ago the roof on Grace Hall, which was the Woodcrest Estate's stable and carriage house, was replaced …
