Gorgeous campus in safe, beautiful Main Line with the academic rigor of any Ivy League school. Tremendous study abroad and internship opportunities. Great alumni network.

I am a current freshman at Villanova University and I love it here because there is an excellent source of community within the student body and the faculty. Everyone is willing to go the extra mile to help out a fellow wildcat. The campus is full of greenery and buildings with stone facades which add to the feel and the location is perfect, surrounded by a safe environment while simultaneously being located on the main line to center city Philadelphia.
