The mission of Villanova's learning communities is to enhance student learning by creating integrated learning experiences inside and outside of the classroom as students transition to college life.
The Learning Communities have 3 main components, all of which will add to your Experience as a First-Year Student at Villanova!
"Participating in a learning community provided me with a close knit group of friends. The Hall became my home away from home." (Marjie, Business Student)
Students in the learning communities are also offered special opportunities to attend plays, concerts, lectures, and dinners off campus, with their professors, classmates, and hallmates. The professors seek to create meaningful educational experiences both in and out of class.
For Honors Students opting to live in the Honors Housing:
"We would teach and learn from each other, sadly missing any who were absent and blithely welcoming them when they returned. Such signs of friendship sprang from the hearts of friends who loved and knew their love returned, signs to be read in smiles, words, glances and a thousand gracious gestures."
"So were sparks kindled and our minds were fused inseparably, out of many becoming one."
St. Augustine, Confessions, IV, 8, 3
