The Villanova Blue Key Society provides a prospective student with a student's perspective into Villanova University for over 55 years.

The Blue Key Society has a long, rich history of service to Villanova University. The Society was known as the “Key Club” in its early years, because its members were seen as a prospective student’s ‘key’ to Villanova. Through giving campus tours, hosting students and running annual Candidates’ Days, the “Key Club” thrived and became one of Villanova’s most prominent and visible student organizations. In order to more closely link the club and the spirit of Villanova, the school color became a part of the name, and the group came to be called the “Blue Key Society,” which it is known as still today. Currently in its 56th year of service to Villanova in the 2008-2009 school year, the Society now consists of over 200 student volunteer tour guides who proudly come together to make up Blue Key.

Each fall, Blue Key welcomes into its midst the newest members of the Society, who have been passed through two rounds of rigorous interviews. Each year, the Recruitment Chairs strive to get a group of dedicated and genuine students who wish to give back to Villanova. We are proud to be among the most energetic, diverse, outgoing and interesting groups on campus. Members come together from all different organizations, such as Greek Life, New Student Orientation, Music Activities, Special Olympics, Athletics and Student Government, to paint an accurate and complete portrait of student life at Villanova.
