This week, we are featuring the 2015 Falvey Scholars and giving you the chance to get to know these bright young adults up close and personal. Not only are they very smart – they’re very interesting! Just last week, Falvey Memorial Library, the Center for Undergraduate Research and Fellowships, and the Honors Program announced the 2015 Falvey Scholars Award winners: Katie Kline, Elizabeth Long, Jessica Swoboda, Nicholas Ader, Joseph Schaadt and John Szot. These six remarkable senior students have been selected from a pool of candidates from various disciplines for their outstanding undergraduate student research projects at Villanova University. Click here for a listing of their projects as presented at the 2015 Falvey Scholars Awards Presentation and Reception Ceremony.

If I could be any person for a day, I’d be Lauren Conrad.
My favorite Villanova memory is moving into Stanford freshman year and meeting my random roommate who, to this day, is one of my best friends here at VU.
While working on my research project, I was challenged by keeping up-to-date with the constantly changing information on my topic!
Today I’m feeling the color pink.

One Summer Adventure I’m daydreaming about is just relaxing after I (hopefully!) pass my nursing boards!
Happiness is spending time with family and friends.
Everyone should know that I love to bake.
I am amazed by how quickly these four years at Villanova flew by.
