Overall Experience: Villanova's MBA program is ranked in the top 20 programs in the US for a reason. Their diverse staff and range of program specialties is an attractive quality. They also offer a Center City location in Philadelphia for convenience. I've had the opportunity to travel to China, tour major technology companies in Silicon Valley, and attend the Forbes Under 30 Summit thanks to the programs and partnerships offered through the school. Villanova's regional reputation as an outstanding school would definitely inspire me to make the same choice if I could do it all over again.

Overall Experience: Been a great experience so far.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've only gotten through freshman year and also took a gap year after high school. I think that when I made my decision during senior year it was a good choice but I also think that I changed over the course of my year off and now the school doesn't fit me as well. Despite having a hard time transitioning, I've got the hang of things now. I can tell it's a good school academically and I loved my professors. I've got good friends and almost everyone at the school is friendly and nice. The two main things I have against the school are the administration, which I feel is too strict and tries to micromanage everything, and the school's overall culture, which I think is very preppy and refined.

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

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.

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.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
