5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Have had lunch with professors and gotten a good bit of extra credit because I asked for it and was able to form good relationships with my professors.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Job placement at 'Nova is GREAT. I know people who have gone into six figure jobs after graduating, and there are LOTS of recruiting events on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Public safety keeps a very good eye out on students, and will be militarized in the next year.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Signing up for who to live with is a VERY dramatic time for people. It's very much based on luck as well. The upperclassmen housing is very nice though.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't like the greek life on campus because they're pretty annoying... the parties are tough to get into if you aren't in greek life and girls with their letters and reserved tables at dinners are pretty snotty. But hey, you do you.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: As a varsity athlete I tend to be biased in a review of athletics but there is usually a lot of energy around campus when there are basketball games and athletes are very approachable.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Villanova is becoming increasingly academic and boasting very impressive rankings lately. The last year was incredibly successful for the Villanova administration and athletic departments. As a recruited varsity athlete, I must say that all of the energy and investments around and by 'Nova are incredibly exciting. The school has so much potential being realized!

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Don't like the fact that public safety will be armed.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Some Greek organizations are very cliquey and it seems like only a certain type of person gets chosen.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I had a great freshmen year and although everything about the school is not perfect (certain campus facilities, lack of diversity, etc.) I feel as though the Villanova community is very interconnected and offers a strong support system.

5 College Sophomore

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Excellent school reputation opens more doors in the futre.

5 College Junior

Athletics: One of the top athletics programs in the country.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: After a twenty year plus break from education, I was a bit apprehensive and nervous. All my fears and worries were put to rest by the professors and school administrators quickly. I soon realized that I was not alone in my effort.

Villanova is a school that grows on you—for some it takes only until the end of orientation, for others it takes two semesters or more. Whatever the case, students get caught up in what it means to be a Villanovan and to be from the 'Nova nation. Villanova provides students with an excellent education, well enough to confidently put alumni head-to-head with Ivy grads and be successful. Outside of its rich academic tradition, the students at Villanova come to know and appreciate their fellow students, professors, and surrounding community.

Going to Villanova gives students a unique perspective on college life. Even with a lack of diversity and a party scene that doesn’t start to pick up until you are a junior, Villanova is a fun place to be. Villanova will not give you the typical college life of a wild youth, but regardless, it is a school that is exciting and full of good times. While that might not be what you are looking for, the students who do attend Villanova end up loving the school for everything it offers, from its basketball games and rich traditions, to its Catholic heritage and the full load of academics. It’s a school that you can grow into comfortably, and looking back in later years, are glad to call your home away from home.
