Villanova University Top Questions

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about Villanova University?

Hee Jae

The students at our school has the most school spirit and school pride. The students are very open and polite. We also have a beautiful campus!


Basketball. Everyone who has gone to Villanova loves to talk basketball. March Madness is just Villanova Madness. But once you get past the sports, you get to see the heart and essence of the school that all students fall in love with during their stay at the aboretum campus. The teachers, the pastors, the community, the activism. There's a reason why the school's motto is "Igniting the heart, inspiring the mind, and illuminating the spirit." This school will change you in ways you'd never dream a school could. Really, that is the best thing to brag about.


The beautiful church. Aesthetics have been known to change moods, and affect well-being. Being a Catholic university, we are taught that Beauty is a transformative experience, a conduit to God. Flowering dogwoods, lilies, and lilacs surround the outside, while the inside is a pristine marble masterpiece. The silver stone walls and archaic stain-glass windows give it a majestic feel, and yet there is always a warm and friendly face at the arched double doors beckoning you in.


How wonderful our student life is.

The academic difficultly and prestige! Very important!


I most brag about the sense of community and the well-rounded education that I receive at Villanova. I also talk about the diversity of experiences and opportunities that are available both inside and outside the classroom. For example, I have the freedom to take classes like Sign Language or Harry Potter and International Relations. The breadth of possibility also crosses into the tenets of Villanova: unitas, veritas, and caritas which describe the unity students have as we cheer at basketball games, the sincerity and passion with which we approach academics, and the care we employ in service to others.


OUr basketball team is better than yours.
