Im a current freshman at Villanova, currently sittingBrightBusiness - Management and Administration
Im a current freshman at Villanova, currently sitting in my theology class (YOU HAVE TO TAKE A MULTITUDE OF BULLSHIT RELGION COURSES), i had always heard the villanofun rumors but honestly, always disregarded them. Well let me tell you everything you read on this site is spot on accurate. You absolutely need older friends in frats if you want to have a good time as a freshman, not to mention a HIGH quality fake to get into one of the couple bars that will consider letting freshman in (you may need to slide the bouncer 20 anyway..). Radnor cops are absolulte assholes and have nothing better to do than fuck over Villanova students because they hate Nova students. Not to mention every other kid at the school seems like they were helicopter parented up until college. When people say Villanvoa students dont smoke... they dont smoke. Which means Villanova takes smoking very serious, and you bet your ass most Ra's will right you up in the blink of an eye for just the smell. Theres also basically nothing to do in the area, so if you havent become an alcoholic yet... look into it. I will say the academics are good but very hard, as in you will find yourself stressed constantly but its ok because you can spend all your time doing work to improve because thats all there is to do!

As a financial aid recipient, I had toMath
As a financial aid recipient, I had to spend most of my time working in the work-study program. This was stocking the shelves at the dining hall and swiping cards. My degree was in math, I was really interested in computer science when I was exposed to it, but the instructors were not very inviting for crossover. The internships & jobs are reserved for the paying customers, not the charity cases. If you get an academic grant to this school, it's best off to go elsewhere where they put their best foot forward, most recipients end up working in the local restaurant industry. This place is for those with a country club upbringing. The calculations that I spent 4 years laboring over are not applicable to the workforce in any way shape or form. Worthless waste of time.
