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.

The best part of Villanova is the sense of community. Students go out of their way to hold doors open for you. Students are friendly and very involved. Many clubs and activities are very exclusive and competitive to get into. Most people have to try many times to become an OC or join Blue Key, the tour guide society on campus. The social life is vibrant, but do not expect this to be a party school. We do not have fraternity or sorority houses on campus and it can be challenging to get rides at times. I love being so close to Philadelphia and the train on campus makes transportation very convenient. As for the academics, students here definitely follow the work hard, play hard motto. Coursework is challenging and competition within the classroom is present to a high degree. Do not expect to breeze through any of your classes. The faculty want to see you succeed and I had no issues getting outside help in my classes. And last but not least, enter the lottery for all basketball games. School spirit is huge here. Everyone is always excited to go to the games, especially after we won the championship. Going to this school was the best decision I've ever made.
