All roads lead to the Connelly Center. It is not only geographically in the middle of campus, it is also the social center, study center, and has arguably the best food on campus. It caters to the students' basic needs. One need that tends to be overlooked is the athletic facilities. Both West and South campus gyms often have broken equipment and long lines to use the machines that actually work. However, the athletic facilities are being updated to meet student needs. Something Villanova does have a lot of, though, are courts. Every dorm on campus is within a few minutes' walk of tennis, volleyball, and basketball courts, and there is almost never a wait for a pick-up game.
Overall, the facilities on campus add to the feel of the school. The building that always gives postcard-quality pictures is the church, the oldest building on campus. But even the newer buildings on campus have an older look with modern accommodations. However, no campus is complete without a few buildings that stick out like sore thumbs. Perched on top of a hill, CEER is a massive white concrete monster of a building that contrasts directly with Tolentine, one of the oldest buildings on campus. The only area that the University seems to overlook is the need for up-to-date athletic facilities.
