Student Testimonial

Earning a bachelor’s degree has been a dream of mine for many years.  I was nervous to begin but the staff and advisors in the Part Time Studies office made it painless.  I find Villanova’s faculty to be highly accomplished in their respective fields and invested in the success of their students.  I am consistently challenged by the Media and Technology curriculum and am learning far more than I expected from Villanova’s liberal arts requirements.  I cannot speak highly enough about the excellent education I am receiving and the members of the Villanova community who are guiding me along my way.
