    Villanova is like many other schools in the respect that it is what you make of it. For instance, I enjoy volunteering my time and Villanova has ample opportunities for volunteers. However, if volunteering is not your thing then you still have other options of what you'd like to get involved with.

    Villanova is really like any other college in the sense of fun. They seem to be known as college that is not a lot of fun, but like anything else if you put yourself out there you will have fun. I am an incoming sophomore and enjoy being at Villanova University there is a lot to offer here, academically and socially.

    If I only had one word to describe Villanova, it would be community. I appreciate all the opportunities Villanova gives to its students to get involved with and make a difference in the lives of many. For instance, a student can get involved with Special Olympics, whether it is being on the committee that organizes the event itself or managing one of the many activity stands for the athletes. Not only does Villanova give students a chance to give back to the community, but gives them opportunities to get to know one another; from CAT (Campus Activities Team) or Inter-Hall Council, Villanova organizes various events in order to give the students a more exciting campus experience and a chance to build friendships that will last after graduation. Through all these different opportunities to interact with others, I definitely made the right choice coming to Villanova.

    Villanova's campus is beautiful, and while it is spacious it is not so big that walking to class becomes a problem. The people at Villanova are extremely friendly and easy to get along with. There are many musical groups, theater groups, various clubs and intramural sports as well as the Greek life on campus which allow for a perfect social environment. If anything, social life on campus is not an issue. The food on campus in the dinning halls is decent at best. It varies depending on the special of the day. The A la Carte places on campus are very good. There are three main places on main campus; The Connelly Center, The Italian Kitchen and Corner Grille, all of which are very good. On West Campus, there is a small convenience store inside of St. Mary's Hall, Second Storey. This stays open until 2 every night and also serves very good food. On average, on a scale of 1-10 the food on campus gets a 7. Lastly, the dorm rooms vary from very good to decent/bad. The good freshmen dorms are Good Counsel, Caughlin ( All Girls Dorms), McGuire Hall (all guys dorm, aka: ManGuire), and Katherine. The South Campus freshmen dorm, Standford Hall is not nearly as good as the others, although, it is the social hot spot and the dorm where all athletes stay. In some of the bigger roomed dorms (such as McGuire and Good Counsel), the school makes forced triple situations where three people will be put in a room originally made for two. While this sounds like a terrible living situation and completely unfair, the school will take the cost 1 student must pay for housing and pay it back to those in the forced triple, splitting this three different ways and paying each student. Lastly, all of the freshmen dorms are air conditioned/ heated.
