College Tour '10: Villanova University

By Valerie Strauss

VILLANOVA, PA
Villanova University
From a student

It was beautiful. It looked like the area around the National Cathedral [in Washington D.C.]

It is obvious it is a Catholic university. Everywhere you look there are crosses, and there is a beautiful church in the middle of the campus. In front of the library there is a place where students were hanging out and selling things made by the students. It felt very comfortable.

I had a good visit. Everyone was really nice and the kids seemed to be having a good time. It has the feel of a small school but it isn’t too small, with about 10,000 students overall. Undergraduate and graduate. I liked that the classes are small, about 23 kids in each class.

The tour didn’t take us into a dorm. I don’t know why.

I liked it, and could see myself there for four years.

This is one in a series of reports that parents and students are contributing about their campus tours this spring. If you have visited a school and would like to participate, email me a brief report at theanswersheet@washpost.com. You can find out more about College Tour ’10 and how to write about your college visit here.
