The campus and the library have changed over the years and so have the students. We hope you enjoy this retrospective of campus spaces and faces! Welcome home, Villanova University alumni!

One of the student teams, comprised of graduating seniors and honored as Falvey Scholars in 2009, included Jennie Kotschneff (back, second left), and her team members (front, l. to r.) Kristina Salcedo, Christine Matula, Patricia Abel, (back, l. to r.) Melissa Kay, Meghan Dwyer and Sarah Galvanek (College of Nursing); and their mentor: Marcia Costello, Ph.D., R.D.. Their project was titled “A Population Assessment of Chulucanas, Peru.” (Read more about the Falvey Scholars program on the library blog.)
Most of the students in this photo from the Falvey Memorial Library Student Employee Appreciation reception graduated in 2014. We miss them already! (Follow us on Facebook or Twitter to keep up with library happenings!)
