4 College Freshman

Majors: Nursing school is very selective in admissions. Apply directly into the nursing school, it is difficult to transfer in after your first year.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Nursing school is fantastic and nationally recognized for it's accomplished and extremely adept students. Almost all students pass the NCLEX licensing exam on the first try.

College Freshman

Majors: Haven't had an internship yet, but they seem to be pretty easy to get with Villanova connections nationally.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Not a ton of diversity. Most people are white, upper middle class, and from the Northeast United States.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Nurses from Villanova are nationally known for being extremely good at their jobs. The nursing faculty are fabulous and get to know the students personally. Nursing curriculum doesn't have much wiggle room in terms of what classes you take and it can be difficult.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Great academics especially in the Honors College and in the Engineering, Nursing, and Business schools.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Whatever your study needs, you can find a place to accommodate that. From silent floors in the library to the busy Connelly center with lots of background noise. Campus is absolutely beautiful all year, but especially in fall and spring.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Lots of nice shopping in the area especially King of Prussia mall and Suburban Square outdoor mall. Great restaurants and pretty areas to hang out.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So glad I chose Villanova. Philadelphia is easily accessible, the sports are nationally known, the academics are great, and the student body is very nice to each other.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Villanova alumni are all over the country and you can find connections and help anywhere in any field.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: People generally have pretty preppy styles. Most of the student body is very good looking and look wealthy.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Health center is open 24/7 and you can get most over the counter meds for free because the cost is included in your yearly health and wellness fee. Walk-ins are welcome if necessary.

College Freshman

Greek Life: Not involved in Greek life because they all seem very superficial. Didn't want to interact with people who were shallow and all the same.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Basketball is huge on campus. Definitely the center of campus life in the winter. Football is pretty good for their division. Swim and dive is very good as well.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Mostly only seniors live off-campus because the west campus apartments are great for juniors. Lots of houses and apartments in the area for seniors.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of nice places to eat in Bryn Mawr and Wayne. Minella's Diner is a very popular diner that is a Villanova staple. Open 24/7

College Freshman

Party Scene: I haven't attended any frat parties because it really doesn't appeal to me to be around those kinds of people. You can definitely find more fun things to do in Philly or around campus.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The administration is never overbearing and don't try to kill the campus vibe. All the administrators with whom I have ever interacted have always been very nice and helpful to me.

College Freshman

Scholarships: Did not qualify for any financial aid. Didn't receive any money from the school.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Some places are much better than others. Cafe Nova is the best food on campus but can get very busy at times.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: South Campus where almost all the freshmen live is a bit of a walk to any classes you may have. There is a gym and a dining hall on South, though, which is nice. Sophomores get to live right on main campus which is really close to all the academic buildings and student center.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The people who work in the financial aid office are very kind and willing to help.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Villanova is a wonderful place. There is always things to do on and off campus. Most freshman are placed in triples, but it is certainly and easy adjustment. The campus is beautiful and very clean. The housing process is based on a lottery system so the placement is fair for everyone.

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing can be pretty expensive but it is less expensive than living on campus with a meal plan during your last two years.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
