Congratulations to Daniel Love, the March Falvey Student of the Month! Daniel is a senior civil/environmental engineering major with a minor in Spanish who has worked in the Library for four years in circulation and interlibrary loan.
His supervisor, Phylis Wright, manager of Access Desk Services, said, “Daniel is one of our shining stars. His commitment and knowledge base is so valued that he has often trained our new assistants, introducing new students to the wonderful world of interlibrary loan processing. He will be sorely missed when he graduates this May.”
Phylis noted that Daniel is known on campus for his mission work. For example, during spring break, Daniel went on a service trip to Honduras with other engineering students. The students worked at the orphanage Amigos de Jesús, replacing filters on the water system to provide clean water, a project that will save money because people will no longer have to buy as much purified water. The Villanova students played soccer and basketball with the Honduran boys and danced the night away at the fiesta on the last night of the trip.
As a Spanish minor, Daniel was one of the few people in his civil engineering group who spoke and understood Spanish.
Daniel also likes to check into Falvey Library on Foursquare. He is always competing for mayorship of Falvey with Alexandra (Alex) Edwards, a Falvey graduate assistant. Since they are both in Falvey so frequently, they both have held the “prestigious” title of mayor recently.
Daniel comes to Villanova from Massapequa, N.Y.

The University Staff Council at Falvey selects a Student of the Month based upon nominations from student supervisors.
