5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: One of the first things I was told when I arrived on campus at Villanova was that by the end of 4 year, they would make you love the school. I can attest that I have fallen in love significantly before that time period. I cannot imagine myself anywhere else in the world for my undergraduate experience. The most important thing to know about Villanova is the commitment to being a positive community, and a strong belief in the augustinian values of veritas, unitas, and caritas.

Overall Experience: I received my best fin aid/ scholarship packages from Villanova, and felt as if I had to put in little effort to do so. I had very high grades and very little money so they accommodated.

Overall Experience: Villanova is great for graduate and undergraduate course work, there is alot to offer. Make sure you are aggressive with your advisors to make sure you get everything properly planned out for future careers. Also it is expensive as hell so make sure you have a scholarship.

Greek Life: Greek life isn't a huge part of life at Villanova. If you are involved yourself or have a lot of friends who are involved, you'll hear a lot about it especially around rush and formal time. I'm not involved in greek life and it hasn't significantly impacted me. Because all of the frat houses are off campus, it can sometimes be difficult to get to parties, but most fraternities are welcoming to girls whether you're in a sorority or not.

Athletics: Our basketball team won this year, which made sports an even bigger part of life at Villanova than it had been before. The fitness facilities are great for students,whether they are involved in any kind of organized sports or not. There is a gym both on main campus and on South campus, where freshman live. The main campus gym also offers fitness classes for students for a low price.

Overall Experience: My overall experience at Villanova has been good.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The nursing courses are challenging for me. I'm definitely better at the bedside than taking tests. I have learned a lot and am excited to continue to do so. I really like my friends. Sometimes it's difficult to choose between C fiends and academics. The class sizes are great. I like the living situations. The nursing professors really care about me having success.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Through emailing many professors and administrators in the nursing program I was put in touch with a nursing director at Brigham and Women's Hospital on a general medicine floor and was offered a summer externship as a patient care assistant on the floor. I have learned an incredible amount at this position and am so grateful to everyone who helped me get the interview in the first place.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I really trust the public safety officers. My roommate freshman year was sexually assaulted and we wanted her to tell someone but she decided not to. Otherwise I feel completely safe in the town of Villanova and on campus.

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.
