’Cat in the Stacks: Gotta Collect ’em All!

CAT-STAX4I’m William Repetto, a second-year graduate student at Villanova University. This is the “‘Cat in the Stacks” column. I’m your ‘cat. I’ll be posting about college life, about learning and growing here at Villanova, and, of course, about the Falvey Memorial Library’s role.

Here’s a situation: as the temperature starts to drop into those fall digits, and midterms loom on the horizon, you find yourself walking along out front of the Falvey. Like the smart, suave Villanova student that you are, you decide to go into the library to get some studying done.

Only wait, you start to day dream off, thinking of curling up back at the dorm (apartment, etc.) with a nice, warm cup of Ramen; how could the library possibly top that? Well, guess what! We can. A “hot” topic among patrons and staff alike here at the Falvey has been the quality of the soup at Holy Grounds.

The strong opinions surrounding the topic have led us to declare this week: “Soups Mania.”

Okay, you caught us. This week is no different from any other: “It’s always Soups Mania” here at the Falvey. Just like you have to wait to see who performs at Hoops Mania each year, we patiently wait here to see which soups will grace our taste buds each afternoon here in the Falvey.

The “Soups Mania” pins are a way of showing our appreciation to Dining Services for supplying the Falvey with such a unique option for guests. That said, we’d love to see how you enjoy your soup here at Falvey. Do you chow down in the first floor lounge? Do you bring your king’s ransom to the armchairs in the Dugan Polk Family Reading Room? Or is soup your appetizer for an event at the Idea Accelerator? Let us know via Twitter (@FalveyLibrary) or, better yet, tag us in an Instagram post (@VillanovaLibrary) wearing your fancy, new button!

Look how excited Hunter gets when she buys her soup!

Also, #DidYouNova, we’re giving away buttons all semester long here at the Falvey, here’s a photo of our favorites so far:

I think the “Rollie” and “Eboo” are my favorites! What about yours?

Have you collected ’em all?
