THE VILLANOVA WAY CIRRICULUM
Villanova University was founded in 1842 with a shared commitment to the Augustinian ideals of truth, unity and love; and a community dedicated to service to others. The strength of the Villanova experience comes in part from the University’s welcoming community. All members are bonded together by a shared responsibility to let the principles of truth, unity and love guide their lives. The Villanova community helps student-athletes grow intellectually, professionally and spiritually, and challenges them to reach their full potential. Our summer camps are an extension of the University’s strong mission.
