Villanova University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (7)
The Biology B.S. program at Villanova is one of the best preparatory educational programs out there. The quality of the instruction is one that truly reinvigorated my passion for learning. Villanova faculty and staff care for their students to not only learn the material but to UNDERSTAND it and apply it to their lives. As a biology major, I was constantly presented with research opportunities, educational trips, clinical studies, and engaging lab session that reinforced what I learned and brought it to life, granting me a wholesome learning experience. Ultimately, the science department at Villanova is dedicated towards the formation of proper scientists, health professionals, professors etc. I am proud to be amongst their ranks.
I had an excellent experience at Villanova University. I was originally attracted to Villanova due to the tight-knit community, strong academics, and solid network. Based primarily on those three main reasons, I would highly recommend Villanova to anyone looking for those characteristics in a university. The tight-knit community was the most important factor to me when choosing the school I wanted to attend. When I visited the campus the fall of my senior year of high school, I was blown away by how friendly the students were, how highly they spoke of the school, and how close students were not only to each other, but also to the faculty. That tight-knit community was only further proven to me once I actually enrolled. Villanova students have a lot of school spirit, partial credit to the strong basketball team, which I believe contributes to the supportive and encouraging community. Next to the tight-knit community feel, I was also drawn to Villanova due to its strong academics. The business school had been climbing in the rankings in recent years, and I knew I wanted to pursue a degree in Finance. Villanova Business School was known for having a rigorous course load with many classes that would prepare me for a career in Finance. Having successfully completed three Finance internships during school, and ultimately landing a job at Deutsche Bank after graduation, I can say with confidence that Villanova prepared me extremely well. Finally, Villanova was attractive to me because of the solid network. I believe this is a factor that is often overlooked, but one that is very important. It ties into the tight-knit community that exists at Villanova, and because that community is so strong, it extends after graduation through the alumni network. This was very important to me because I knew I wanted to work on Wall Street after graduation, and Villanova places very well in New York City at the Wall Street banks. Villanova alumni are more than willing to help out current students and assist them in landing internships and full-time jobs. As a result, it is no surprise that I wound up at Deutsche Bank in a division dominated by Villanova alumni. As mentioned earlier, I truly had an incredible four years at Villanova. Attending school there was one of the best decisions of my life. The tight-knit community, strong academics, and solid network that I experienced while at school have been carried with me into my life post-graduation. Villanova gave me life-long friends, a start to a successful career in my dream industry, and a huge network of people to support me.
The people I met at Villanova University are one of the happiest, most intelligent, and well-mannered people I've ever met. I've earned great education, long-lasting friendships, and unforgettable memories while attending Villanova University. The campus is also beautiful--not too big or too small!
Villanova is well respected and known for its fantastic academics-- not just its beautiful Mainline campus & basketball team. I know that my Villanova education has given me a leg up and I'm proud to call myself an alum.
Villanova is a university that is very inclusive and lively. There are many opportunities to get involved and make a difference on a large and impactful campus. Classrooms are sized fairly small which is beneficial, as it allows more contact and feedback from professors. The professional connections and networking opportunities offered are also extremely beneficial.
Villanova is a great place to study and learn. Despite being in the English program, I also was exposed to a wide variety of coursework in other disciplines, which really helped to make me a well rounded individual upon graduation. In terms of English, the professors are generally very willing to help outside of class and put in a lot of work to ensure student success, while simultaneously demanding a lot of their students. I would encourage any English (or for that matter, any student period) to check out the Humanities department at Villanova. This department combines philosophy, poetry, literature, theology and political science and really became my second home (and second major) in my time at Villanova. Overall, like many colleges, Villanova will give you back what you put in. If you make efforts to challenge yourself, go outside comfort zones and discover new people and ideas, the time you spend there will be truly awesome and life-changing.
I keep hearing good things about Villanova, but I just can't seem to leave the convenience of the online Christian college. It's great that I don't have to worry about leaving the safety and comfort of my own home. I can work at my own pace and not have to wait to keep up with the rest of the class.
