Villanova University Top Questions

What is the stereotype of students at your school?

Kathleen

There is definitely a stereotype of the typical Villanovan. We didn't get the nickname "Vanillanova" for no reason. The majority of students are white, upper-middle class, and Catholic. That being said, I have made many friends at Villanova who don't fit into the stereotype. I know people from many different races, religions, and economic backgrounds.

Villanova is known as the stereotypical preppy school. It is so-called "white America," as we have garnered the name Vanillanova. We have also attained the name Villanofun. This is most likely due to the intense Radnor police and security around the school. When a student comes to visit Villanova University, they usually expect to see all white students with North Face jackets, UGG Boots, and Louis Vuitton purses. They also expect people to be stuck up and rich.
